I was not paid to be here.
am here on my own accord. I actually had to leave work early. I own my own business. I had to arrange for someone to look after my dogs. I canceled dinner plans in order to be here.>> No one paid me to be here.
I bought the gas. I'm here on my own. I wanna make sure my voice is heard.>> My sign says, it's my zip code, and it says District 7, which is our district in New Jersey, and that I am not paid, I'm not a professional and I am here as constituent concerned about the decisions that he's making for us.
>> Nobody paid me to be here. My ulterior motive is to tell Congressman Lance exactly what's on my mind, to voice my opinion. I think it's really spurious to charge that there's paid agitators. Was the Tea Party paid agitators? Of course not, this is a grassroots movement.
