Tea Party Revolt Update #1
February 22, 2009 – 11:11 am


Hi! An update on the expanding Tea Party Revolt 2009! This is from the website "amfreenet "dot" com. (see link below)

Rebellion in Northern California, as citizens stomp on their uberliberal, stimulus-supporing Congressman who thinks 90% marginal tax rates are A-OK!

I explained to [Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Pleasanton)] that even people who make $150k in Northern Cal. are not "rich" and should not be taxed as if they were…I also expressed my concern that about half the people in the country now pay no income taxes, so there is overwhelming incentive for them to keep voting for democrats and therefore higher taxes for the rest of us. He told me that he thought tax rates should go up for the very rich and that the top marginal tax rate should be 90%. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, so I asked in a voice that many in the room could hear if he really meant 90%, and he said yes. Several people asked me after my turn was over if they heard correctly what he said, and were amazed when I said yes.

GO TO THE PLEASANTON TEAPARTY ON APRIL 15 (Black Ave & Santa Rita) and TELL MCNERNEY WHAT YOU THINK OF HIM, PELOSI, OBAMA and OTHER TAX LOVING DEMS!!!

I have a great idea for a ballot initiative. All legislators will be taxed at the highest tax bracket. How can they feel the pain without experiencing it. It is so easy for them to tax others now.
