Doyle says Tea Party rally protested middle-class tax breaks
Gov. Jim Doyle says those at Wednesday's Tea Party rally at the State Capitol were protesting "the biggest middle class tax breaks we have seen in decades in this country."
Organizers estimated the crowd at 5,000. State officials said police were prepared to handle 5,000, but they wouldn't give an official estimate.
State Democratic Party director Joe Wineke derided the claim that the Madison rally and others like it stemmed from a grass movement.
