Common Sense in Government is frosty to the idea of a proposed tax hike, so it created a new constituency to protest it.
More than 30 angry snowmen greeted Michigan state lawmakers as they came to work on Tuesday. The Michigan group built the snowmen late Monday on the lawn of the state Capitol.
The cold-hearted protesters held signs warning lawmakers not raise their taxes.
The group's leader, Wendy Day, said the protest was "the latest in a robust conservative uprising against new taxes and excessive spending."
Gov. Jennifer Granholm has proposed extending the state sales tax to cover a $1.7 billion hole in the budget.
But Common Sense in Government says lawmakers should cut spending before raising taxes.
