The Tea Party protests began in early 2009 when Rick Santelli, the On Air Editor for CNBC, set out on a rant to expose the bankrupt liberal agenda of the Obama Administration and Congress—specifically, the flawed "Stimulus Bill" and pork filled budget.
A few days later, grassroots activists and average Joe Americans began organizing what would soon become the Nationwide Chicago Tea Party effort.
On February 27th, 2009, an estimated 300,000 Americans took to the street in 40+ cities across the country in the first nationwide "Tea Party" protest. Organizers of the February 27th events pledged to continue on with an even bigger and better protest to follow the first.
On April 15th, "Tax Day," a second round of protests were held in more than 3,000 cities around the country.
The Tea Party now claims millions of Americans as advocates of small government, personal responsilbility, lower taxes, and freedom from government intrusion.
