Cincinnati's Tea Party

Anti-stimulus package protesters take to the streets

Cincinnati’s protest and subsequent march to City Hall, one of about 600 tea parties scheduled nationwide, ostensibly were held to protest President Obama’s $787 billion economic stimulus package, and urge city officials not to accept any financial aid. Read Kevin Osborne's report here.
