What is an anti-tax Tea Party?
On April 15th, Tax Day, there will be anti-tax rallies at various locations across the country. You’ll remember the rant from CNBC’s Rick Santelli where he said there should be a "Tea Party" revolt in his hometown of Chicago.
FOX’s Sean Hannity will lend his support to the rally set to take place in Atlanta. Newt Gingrich says he’ll be on hand for the rally in New York. There are plans for more than 300 parties in all.
Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin is warning that the "left-wing blogosphere" will spend the run-up to the rallies bashing the grass roots effort. She writes that the tea parties are about more than taxes:
"This is every bit as much about Obama as it is about the GOP lemmings who voted for endless bailouts, who demonized their fiscal conservative colleagues who had their heads on straight, and who continue to sponsor and vote for massive government expansions like the $6 billion national service boondoggle."
