The rally today kicks off a 20-day bus tour by the Tea Party Express across the nation that will end in Washington, D.C., on April 15: tax day. The “Showdown in Searchlight” is only days after Democrats approved a big change of the U.S. health care system that is opposed by Tea Party activists who advocate for smaller government.
