Voices from the biggest tea party rally in years [VIDEO]

At Wednesday’s tea party rally, thousands from around the country rallied against the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups and the National Security Agency’s access to private information. Rally participants also expressed their opinions about the Gang of Eight’s proposed immigration bill.

Some protesters told The Daily Caller they were not tea party veterans, but were motivated to come out by recent scandals.

Speakers included Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, outgoing Rep. Michele Bachmann, and Glenn Beck.

TheDC asked participants what brought them to the steps of the Capitol.
