White House facing the ellipse
America's tea-party movement is set to explode in less than one week with taxpayer rallies in an estimated 800 U.S. cities and a massive march on the White House.
The movement is now putting President Obama himself on notice with a Tax Day tea party at the White House Ellipse on April 15, 2010, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. FreedomWorks is partnering with the American Liberty Alliance and several other groups to launch the Washington event.
"This April 15 will be the largest network of events across the country that I believe we've seen in a long time," FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said in a conference call. "As far as we can tell, we count somewhere between 800 and 900 tea parties across the country. We expect millions of people to show up across the country protesting a government that is out of control, a government that does not listen to the American people. We want to take our country back."
Prepare for your rally, visit the one and only "tea-party store" now!
Kibbe referenced a newly released survey by Rasmussen Reports that reveals Americans identify more with the tea-party movement than President Obama. On major issues, 48 percent of voters say that the average tea-party member is closer to their views than Obama. Just last month, Rasmussen released data showing that 47 percent of voters felt closer to the views of tea-party members than to Congress.
Kibbe said speakers at the Washington event will talk about the major economic issues of the day.
"We'll talk about what needs to be done on Obamacare, a policy that was forced down the throats of the American people," he said. "We believe there is a battle for public opinion between now and the election. We very much support what the states are doing to challenge its constitutionality. We believe that these next two election cycles – for better or worse – will be a mandate on Obamacare and the process that the Democrats in Congress and the White House used to force it through."
Speakers will also discuss energy taxation and a 50-state strategy to take America back.
"The tea-party movement is organized in every community across the country, in every state, in every battleground congressional district, at every battleground senate district," Kibbe said. "The people who make up the movement are going to let their voices be heard on Nov. 2."
Speakers at the Washington rally include Lord Monckton, Andrew Breitbart, former Rep.Armey, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, Tucker Carlson, Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., and Rev. C.L. Bryant.
