Tea partiers hit Capitol By: Daniel Libit and Martin Kady II November 5, 2009 11:14 AM EST
Capitol Police arrested nine protesters Thursday morning in the Hart Senate office building as thousands of Tea Party activists descended on the Capitol building to protest the trillion dollar health care bill and government spending.
The gathering was organized by local Tea Party groups around the country, who are arriving in Washington this morning by the busload. Conservative leaders in Congress, led by Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), have taken to the airwaves to encourage the activists to show up on the Capitol steps and demand meetings with members of Congress. The crowd is expected to grow into the thousands by noon, when Bachmann has promised to lead some protesters to a press conference inside the Capitol to express their opposition to the health care bill in person to members of Congress.
Speaking on conservative talker Laura Ingraham’s radio show this morning, Bachmann encouraged people listening to show up on the West Front steps, but she said they should show up with “cameras” instead of “pitchforks.”
A Capitol Police spokeswoman confirmed to POLITICO that nine activists were arrested in the Hart building, and they are being processed at police headquarters. All the buildings in the Capitol complex remain open for now.
The protesters, who are occupying the patch of grass only a few yards from where Barack Obama took the oath of office on Jan. 20, are chanting “you work for us!” Many are holding signs that echo their distrust of Obama and their belief that he is pursuing socialist policies.

Politico, in its truest form, jumped the gun and now when you click on the politico link, instead of correcting the error, Politico has completely re-written the article!
YEP…This is the kind of propaganda pushing PRAVDA/ALINSKY style journalism the Obama administration is wanting to bailout/take over next.
Here is who actually was arrested…ACORN/SEIU Code Pinko Thugs trying to take-over Lieberman’s office chanting, “people not profits, health care for all” & “health care is a human right, single payer health care for all”.
I will have the video of today’s rally on the Capital steps uploaded later. I am working on converting the video now. I believe the downloader caught almost all of it. There were a few snafoo’s due to streaming, but the sentiment is ALL There! Take to the phone lines and let us NOT give up this most important fight of our lives & our freedoms!
