The Tea Party's Tax Day

Nation writer Greg Kaufmann and filmmaker David Burkman head to the tea party's tax day demonstration in Washington, DC, to find out what drives their politics. From Fox News talking points, such as healthcare being "jammed down our throats," to much smaller gripes, like disappearing ink on receipts, the answer may not be so easy to come by. Taxes, socialism and immigration were a few oft-repeated issues that Kaufmann heard. But slowly losing freedom and liberty seemed to be the overarching worry of the tea partiers.
