Pajamas TV: TEA Party turnout exceeded one million

May 4, 2009 by  

TEA Party turnout exceeded one million, according to Pajamas TVWith over 77 percent of events reporting, Pajamas TV has announced 935,000 people attended the nationwide tax day tea party protests.

The conservative online TV company has also estimated the total turnout could range from 1,014,000 to 1,071,000. Thus far, Texas has reported the highest turnout, followed by California, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee and New York.

"The size of the tea party protests indicates that a significant number of Americans are not happy with the economic direction of the country and took the time to make their voices heard," says Roger L. Simon, CEO of Pajamas Media.

On April 15, conservatives from coast to coast expressed their dissatisfaction with the course of Obama’s economic policies by attending the National TEA Party Day, which stands for "taxed enough already."

The organizers called on citizens to march against politicians who "are spending trillions of borrowed dollars, leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying" and want to redistribute hard-earned wealth.

Meanwhile, organizations such as the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy and Americans for Tax Reform have criticized the government for imposing limits on tax deductions for charitable donations.

They say this will make wealthy people give less to charity at a time when such donations are more needed than ever.

    I dont know if these tea parties are going to help any. Obama and the lefty news media are not even covering any of it. All of this will not reach a broader population that is blinded by Obamas BullS**t

      Brian, I don’t think you’ll have to worry about the news getting out about our Tea Partys. The MSM is lax about reporting on them, because they figure if they ignore us, we’ll go away. Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity always give us a mention, and lots of people watch both of them. Come September, there will be a meeting in Washington and the media will have no choice but to report on it. We are not going anywhere, we’re in it for the long hall or until we rid DC of all of the cowardly politicians who are afraid to do the job they were hired for.
