Washington’s continued mishandling of the economic crisis has disquieted the electorate. The bad economic numbers, the precipitous decline in the stock market, the dramatic increase in government spending and the tax increases lying just over the horizon paint a picture of an out-of-control federal government grasping at straws in the search for solutions.
President Obama and his economic team’s proposals can be summarized simply as more borrowing to pay for more spending offset by more taxes.
If I were of a more cynical nature, I’d say that Washington hasn’t “mishandled” the crisis at all – they’ve done exactly what they set out to do, starting on 9/11/2001.
But I really hate being cynical, so I won’t say any of those things.
Instead, I will update you on plans for the April 15th National Tax Day Tea Parties:
- Albany, NY Tea Party – 11 am – 2 pm at the Corning Preserve (Albany Riverfront Park) This page has all the details, including directions, maps & parking info
- Tax Day Tea Party – Online HQ for the April 15th Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party Rallies, including state links
And don’t forget to get your t-shirts and bumper stickers!
