"Come, Take A Stand"

The Branson Tea Party Coalition holds a "peaceful Constitutional rally" Saturday at 11 a.m. on Highway 76 in Branson.

The one-hour roadside demonstration will be held on the Highway 76 Strip in the area stretching from The Apple Tree Mall all the way to Fall Creek Road.

The roadside demonstration will be followed by a Speakers’ Forum/Tea Party Rally from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m next to the Dick Clark American Bandstand Theatre at 1600 W. HW 76.

Organizer Eric Farris tells participants to bring signs with messages "of your concerns regarding the outrageous and questionable actions of our elected leaders." Farris urges demonstrators to keep the messages "civil, sincere, and appropriate for public viewing."

On Saturday, the U.S. Senate is due to hold an initial vote on healthcare reform legislation in a move that will test the appetite for proposals that could extend medical coverage and slash insurance costs. The procedural vote will determine if Democrats have the 60 votes needed to move the legislation forward.
