An anti-bailout, anti-stimulus “tea party” at the state Capitol in Hartford on Wednesday drew an estimated crowd of 3,000 to protest what they consider excessive government spending on the day that many Americans pay their federal and state taxes.
There is video from the Hartford TEA party. I can’t get it to work here, but you can watch it at the Courant or my Right Side Politics column at the Examiner.
As I said previously, contrary to the spin the spend too much, tax too much and borrow too much Democrats and their supporters in the still Obamamania infected mainstream media would have you believe, this is not a Republican or a Fox News movement. As Glenn Reynolds explains, the TEA party movement is a spontaneous grass roots protest.
