With Tea Parties, Members of Congress Watch From the Sidelines





Scores if not hundreds of anti-spending tea parties are expected to be held across the country on Wednesday. But so far, FOXNews.com has found only two members of Congress -- both Republicans -- who have committed to attending the demonstrations on the day income taxes are due.

If members of Congress are planning to attend the Tax Day Tea Party protests on April 15, they're keeping awfully quiet about it.

The tea party movement has garnered nationwide attention since its launch on Feb. 27, and scores if not hundreds of tea parties are expected to be held across the country on Wednesday.

Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Texas Rep. John Culberson, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, say they will attend the protests to show their opposition to the government's massive spending bill. That leaves roughly 530 senators and congressmen who haven't been heard from.
