TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Unions Rally In Support Of ObamaCare Tax Credit (Quote by Kevin Broughton) “Kevin Broughton, the communications director for the Tea Party Patriots, is suspicious that organized labor is paying much of the crowd for their attendance. “The other folks over here, they mind their manners, which you would expect if you were being paid to come out and protest,” Broughton claims. “They either don’t have jobs or their being paid by the SEIU or some of the other folks that have a vested interest in having their neighbors pay for their own health care.” Broughton also contends that their argument is all emotion and that ...
