Tea Party Leader Admits Health Care Fight 'Probably' Lost As Final Protest Begins
Yes-that is what Dick Armey-head of the group FreedomWorks -- said about HCR. Tea Partiers are having their final protest today on Capitol Hill as a "Surge against Obamacare".
But on the eve of their final coordinated push to kill health care reform, one of the Tea Party movements key leaders and funders -- former Republican leader and lobbyist Dick Armey, head of the group FreedomWorks -- said the battle was likely lost.
At a press conference on Monday, Armey acknowledged that Democrats "will most likely pass health care reform legislation that has been debated for the last year and is expected to come to a vote this week."
Democratic members of Congress and their staff prepared themselves with an email memo taken from an article from the Plum Line’s Greg Sargent's
on Tea Partiers " best practices" that I will not link to. This is short but the Tea Party is Over and they smell defeat.
