Tea Party Holding Rally Today
The First Coast Tea Party organization is holding their second major rally today at the Jacksonville Landing from 5:30-7:00pm. The event is being called a Freedom Rally & Healthcare March.
The First Coast Tea Party protests government spending and is working to reduce public spending. Their first event was held on tax day back in mid-April. Organizers of the original event estimated that approximately 5,000-6,000 people attended the April 15th rally to protest the bailouts, debt, pork projects, and wasteful spending rampant in Washington.
The Tea Party protests nationwide were also successful as an estimated 1 million Americans participated in at least 1,000 tea parties in all 50 states, covered heavily on cable news outlets.
