Tax Tea Party Protests: The Rights Radio Self Help Hour welcomes back Tax Mama Eva Rosenberg. Tax Tea Parties groups hope to pressure both Congress and states to reject government spending as a way out of recession and to fix the tax code. What results can we expect re a flat tax and a response to protest demands? Show Date: April 16, 2009.
A nationwide protest is scheduled for April 15, the deadline for filing federal income tax returns. It all began on February 19, 2009 with an on-air vent by Rick Santelli of CNBC, who complained that President Obama’s $75 billion bailout of mortgage defaulters rewarded bad behavior.
Anger over bailouts, the $787 billion stimulus package and the President’s budget has grown into scores of tea parties across the country, with 500 planned for Tax Day in cities and towns across the United States.
The Congressional Budget Office says that the President’s proposed $3.6 trillion budget will produce record-breaking deficits of $9.3 trillion over 10 years.
