Matt Kibbe and others react to the eviction of the Tea Party Debt Commission from the Russell Building
By Tabitha Hale on November 17, 2011
Here is some video of how it all went down.
It has been 932 days since the Democrats have passed a budget. With the formation of the Super Committee, we saw an opportunity for Americans to tell Congress what they would be willing to cut, and offer suggestions to make the budgeting process easier for them. The Senate Rules Committee, headed up by Chuck Schumer, told us they were uncomfortable with the word "hearing", and locked the doors and took away our microphones minutes before the event was scheduled to start.
So basically, they have nearly three years to put a budget forth and fail. We finally act, they kick us out. Senator Mike Lee's office took the lead and quickly found a new location at Hillsdale College's Kirby Center, where the hearing took place not too far behind schedule.
We will be heard, Washington. See the findings and recommendations of the Tea Party Debt Commission here.
