What: Mississippi T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already!) Party
When: Wednesday, April 15, 2009, 4-6 pm
Where: State Capitol Building (south steps), Jackson, MS
Conservative grassroots organization sets April 15, 2009 for Mississippi Tea Party.
On tax day, April 15th from 4-6 pm on the south steps of the state capitol building in Jackson, MS, conservative grassroots organizations and free market activists, joined by political and community leaders, will come together to protest out-of-control government spending and borrowing and to offer positive solutions that will work for America.
Timed to coincide with the date that working Americans must pay their federal income taxes, the Mississippi T.E.A Party is coordinated by the Mississippi grassroots group known as Freedom First in conjunction with Newt Gingrich’s group, American Solutions.
The goal is to call attention to the unprecedented taxing, borrowing and wasteful spending by Congress and the President. Among others, Lt. Governor Phil Bryant will address the gathering.
When asked about the need for nationwide rallies based on the Boston Tea Party of 1773, Kim Wade of Freedom First remarked, “Building on the free market ideas of our founding fathers, and embracing the passion they shared to bring them to light, the Mississippi T.E.A. Party is giving a real voice to working Mississippians. Mark Mayfield added, “Average Americans do not support mortgaging away our children’s futures with never ending bailouts using taxpayer money and unsustainable trillion dollar deficits, which eventually will bankrupt our nation. Now is the time to stand up and let our elected officials know we’ve had enough.”
