Boston, MA, October 15, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- What was initially expected to be a simple anti-Obama-care march on the Boston Common has grown to thousands of citizens interested in coming out to participate in the Healthcare Reform Tea Party. The event location has been confirmed as The Parkman Bandstand, The Boston Common, with guest speakers from 12:00 Noon – 3:00 PM.
"The event was originally planned as a march to protest the healthcare reforms instituted in Massachusetts, reforms being used as a model for national policy," said Bridget Fay, Event Volunteer Coordinator. "We started in April seeking to bring the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party movement to Boston. We have created a tremendous movement of dozens of groups statewide, hundreds of people on blogs and message forums and thousands of people expected to join us on Saturday. This event promises to be the most informative of all our previous tea parties," said Fay.
The nationwide Tea Party movement is a grassroots group of Americans who've grown disgusted with egregious government spending and inequality in taxation. The movement has expanded exponentially and healthcare reform has become a focus.
Todd Feinburg of WRKO-AM will act as emcee for the event. Confirmed citizen speakers represent a variety of grassroots organizations and include: Shelli Baker, Musical Performer; Carla Howell, Alliance to Roll Back Taxes; Don Feder, columnist and Conservative activist; Dr. Mildred Jefferson, retired surgeon and Pro-Life activist; Dr. Allen Unruh, chiropractor and Conservative activist; Jared Rhoads, Founder and Director, lucidicus.org; Sandi Martinez, State Committeewoman, 2010 State Senate Candidate; Brad Marston, founder, ConservativeSolutions.org and 2010 State Representative Candidate; Kamal Jain, political activist, 2010 State Auditor Candidate; Christine Morabito, psychiatric nurse; Maura Marks, PhD, Speech Pathologist.
