TEA PARTIERS RALLY ON CAPITOL HILL: “Tea Party activists from across the country began to rally outside Democratic congressional offices in Washington on Tuesday to protest the $875 billion health care bill and demand meetings with their respective members of Congress. And by all appearances, their arrival is not being taken lightly.”
UPDATE: And here’s a report from a protest at Congressman John Olver’s office in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. More pics and video at the link, courtesy of DaTechGuy.
Plus, Jon Ham — Mary Katharine’s dad — sends this pic from a protest in front of the office of 2nd District Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-NC).
UPDATE: Clyburn says health vote could push past Easter holiday. “The House’s healthcare vote could be delayed until as late as Easter, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Tuesday. Clyburn, in an interview with McClatchy Newspapers, said it is possible that the House vote on healthcare reform could take place long past the vote Democratic leaders had hoped for this week.”
