The Tea Partiers who are convinced Obamacare can still be stopped gathered in front of the Capitol on Tuesday. There were perhaps a couple thousand of them, from all over the country, some in buses chartered by local patriot groups. One man carried this sign: This time, the “creeps” are the Republicans who are refusing to go along with the scheme to block Obamacare by taking away its funding.

Signs and speakers, from activists like the the Tea Party Patriots’s Jenny Beth Martin to more than a dozen Republican members of Congress, excoriated House Speaker John Boehner as weak-willed and untrustworthy.
