A Tea Party group appointed to a Tea Party Debt Commission was scheduled to meet with members of Congress in the Russell Senate office building last Thursday. The meeting was set-up weeks ago by Senator Mike Lee along with Freedom Works. The Democrat-led Senate Rules Committee, at the behest of Chairman Chuck Schumer shut it down, with the room already fully “occupied” with constituents, when Schumer’s men showed up to remove the tables in the room. Incredible. In the video below, listen to organizer, freshman Senator Mike Lee, explain to the crowd what is going on.
But that’s not the end of the story. The New York Times says Capitol Hill police found a “suspicious” package and had to shut-down the meeting. You can see from the video that the “suspicious” package had nothing to do with closing the room to Senator Lee’s guests, and everything to do with Democrats.
Goons appeared to remove the tables in the “occupied” room, microphones were removed and Senate police arrived to guard the doors.
Not a single Democrat was interested in what Tea Party citizens had to say about our Debt, but some Republicans did attend when the meeting was moved to a property owned by Hillsdale College, which a tweet referred to as “the Hillsdale College 1st Amendment Free Speech Zone:” Senators Mike Lee (the organizer) and Rand Paul, along with Congressmen Joe Walsh (IL), Steve King (IA), Mike Pence (IN), Mick Mulvaney (SC), and Paul Brown (GA).
Think of how interested Congressional Democrats, extending all the way to the Oval Office, have been in listening to the occupiers on Wall Street and around the country, yet not a single Democrat showed up to hear the ideas of Tea Partiers. Unbelievable! Thanks to Gateway Pundit. Linked at Legal Insurrection – Thank You. with some headlines you may have missed!
