A million or more rock Washington

From WorldNetDaily
Taxpayer march could be biggest rally ever in capital Posted: September 12, 2009 ~ 9:57 pm Eastern By Chelsea Schilling and Alyssa Farah © 2009 WorldNetDaily WASHINGTON – The capital was rocked today by a taxpayer march and rally that could be the biggest protest ever – potentially dwarfing the Million Man March and the Promise Keepers Rally. Though crowd estimates vary from as low as 60,000 to 70,000 according to ABC News to a high of 2 million by London Daily Mail, photographs and videos of the march and rally demonstrate its enormity. The taxpayers stormed Washington, D.C., today, taking their fight against excessive spending, bailouts, growth of big government and soaring deficits to the front door of the U.S. Capitol. All week citizens have been heading to the Hill by the busloads for the showdown today. The Tea Party Patriots' "Tea Party Express" national bus tour has been hosting a series of tea party rallies all across the nation. A caravan of buses, speakers and entertainers arrived in Washington, D.C., just in time for the march. The taxpayers have paid their own way to the event. The White House said Friday it was unaware of the rally. President Obama has traveled to Minneapolis, Minn., to promote his health-care plans at a rally there. But so many taxpayers showed up on Pennsylvania Avenue that the crowd ran out of room and the march was forced to begin early. WND was at the scene to get crowd reaction and take photos of the protest. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE AND SEE MORE PICS]
