Tax and government size protests (tea parties) were held across the nation today. Observers found a surprising fact. Tea parties were much more heavily attended than anyone thought possible. The one Ol' BC attended in south central Indiana was much much more of a hit than I had ever imagined it could be. Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) spoke to the crowd. One eleven (11) year old delivered a remarkably eloquent address to the crowd. Ol' BC's son in Florida attended a tea party in West Palm Beach and said it too was much better attended than anticipated. This msnbc piece tells a little about tea parties.
President Obama vowed a simpler tax code in response to the vastly attended tea parties. Hellooooo. You're not listening. Simplifying the code would be alright. Scrapping it altogether would be preferable. LIGHTEN OUR TAX LOAD would be a much better response.
Just an observation.
