Santelli On Tea Parties: “It’s a Great Thing”

santelli_4-15.bmpCNBC’s Rick Santelli appeared on Squawk Box this morning, and co-anchor Joe Kernen asked him about today’s tea parties.

“I’m pretty proud of this…good, bad or indifferent: that’s a great thing,” he said. “There’s not a lot of countries that afford their people that type of right. It’s a great thing”

As for whether he’ll be attending any protests: “I haven’t organized. I have to work to pay my taxes so I’m not going to be able to get away today.”
