Retro 2009 Tea Party Signs Spotted at Anti-Obamacare Rally

PPPS (Denver)—In a surprising twist, two Tea Party signs originally carried at a 2009 Protest of Obamacare, resurfaced on Tuesday at a Hands Off My Healthcare Rally in Denver sponsored by Americans for Prosperity. The Denver rally was one of many across the nation in protest of Obamacare, and included speeches about aspects of the law by several noted conservative and Tea Party activists.

The two most interesting signs at the rally were apparently brought by Citizen Pete, notorious spokesman for the Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party.

One of the signs, clearly the most offensive of the two, appears to suggest that the President's rhetoric may at times be something less than reliable.

The second sign, paraphrases part of the President's September 9, 2009 speech to a joint session of Congress. In that now famous health care speech, Obama outlined how the pending Affordable Health Care Act legislation would be largely paid for through reductions in waste and inefficiency.

However, the sign seems to imply some skepticism. Now that the bill has become law and we know what's in it, we are confident that those savings will materialize very soon.

We found one other possible connection to the elusive Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party. But, we'll leave it our readers decide.
