Over 60 different tea party groups were involved in organizing the event. They shipped activists in by the bus load.



While the protest was going on, Congress was engaged in professional acrobatics to figure out how to pass this unpopular bill without actually taking a vote on it.



They should've walked out into the sunshine, and listened to their constituents.
