Turtle Teaparty

July 2nd, 2009 by flanews

Protesters will be at the state capitol on the 4th of July to rally against wasteful government spending.

Federal Stimulus spending will be one of the key rallying points for the anti-tax protesters. A controversial plan to spend 3.4 million federal stimulus dollars to build an animal-crossing underneath a highway near Tallahassee has many of the protesters livid. Organizer Pace Allen said government spending has gotten out of control.

We are concerned about the spending, bailouts, handouts, entitlements. These are not values that will make our country successful in the long run, said Allen.

The protesters will rally at noon in Tallahassee in front of the historic state capitol.
