Tea Party Holds Tax Day Rallies

Ad Feedback

Tea Party members held rallies across the nation on Sunday to protest high taxes and big government.

Protestors gathered to let the federal government know they want things to change.

"The message is cut spending, cut taxes, lower the deficit and spend our money wisely," Tea Party member Russell Capps said.
"If anyone of us ran our household or businesses the way like the way our elected officials handle the purse strings of government, we'd be without bread, drink, or home," Tea Party member Bob James said.
Some politicians, including potential presidential candidates Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, used the rallies to speak to Tea Party members.

Trump blamed the Bush administration for getting President Obama elected to the Oval Office.

"We have a man right now that almost certainly will go down as the worst president in the history of the United States," Trump told Tea Party demonstrators in Boca Raton, Fla.

Trump vowed that if he became president, he wouldn't raise taxes,  he would create "vast numbers of productive jobs," and he would "get rid of Obamacare, which is a total disaster."

Meanwhile, at a similar rally in Madison, Wis., Palin hinted she might soon throw her hat in the ring with other presidential contenders.

"The 2012 election begins here," she told an enthusiastic crowd.
