Local conservatives unite for Tax-Day ‘tea party’
April 15, 2009
FRISCO ” Folks fed up with federal spending filed down Main Street in Frisco on Tax-Day Wednesday, stopping at the local office of Congressman Jared Polis in an outspoken act of democracy.
“Taxed enough already; stop spending now,” the roughly 50 people from Summit and Eagle counties ” many with ties to the Republican party ” chanted.
Polis, a Democrat, answered questions and shared thoughts through speakerphone. He said “enourmous deficits” of about $1.6 trillion this year could devalue U.S. currency long-term, making America less wealthy.
“We can’t let that continue,” he said.
Members of the crowd signed a “declaration” protesting the complicated tax code and several other tax-related issues ” to be presented to Polis during a planned visit to Safeway in Frisco between 12:30-1:45 p.m. on Friday.
