Tea Party Debt Commission Meeting on Capitol Hill Shut Down by Chuck Schumer

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) shut down a long-planned gathering of Tea Party members on Capitol Hill by claiming a suspicious package was found. As you will see from the video below, the eviction of the fully "occupied" room in the Russell Senate office building had nothing to do with a suspicious package and everything to do with silencing a gathering of constituents designed to discuss U.S. debt.

The meeting, set-up by freshman Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), was moved to a property owned by Hillsdale College, and continued there. Republicans in attendance: 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).

Congressional Democrats, extending all the way to the Oval Office, have been very interested in listening to the occupiers on Wall Street and around the country, yet not a single Democrat show up to hear the ideas of Tea Partiers. Unbelievable! Thanks to Gateway Pundit.
