If You’re Teed Off; It May Be Tea Party Time

Jenny Beth Martin remembers the day she became a protester.

Her husband’s business had gone under, and the two were cleaning houses in Atlanta to stay afloat. That was when they heard about a tirade against President Obama’s mortgage bailout scheme by a financial news analyst calling for a modern-day Boston Tea Party revolt.

“We had just lost our house and had … moved into the rental house,” says Martin, 38, whose husband Lee’s temporary-employee firm had 5,000 workers before it went down in the recession.

“I didn’t want other people paying for my mortgage, and I wanted to prevent that in other places,” she says.

Tax Day Tea Party

What started out as a handful of people blogging about their anger over federal spending — the bailouts, the $787 billion stimulus package and Obama’s budget — has grown into scores of so-called tea parties across the country. The biggest demonstration so far drew 6,000 people in Cincinnati.

A nationwide protest in 500 cities and towns is scheduled for Wednesday, the deadline for filing federal income tax returns.

    The original Tea Party idea started with Ron Paul, what it’s become is a disgrace furthered by Fox News and FreedomWorks. It is against all the ideals of the original idea. Every protester is being duped.
