According to reliable sources, Historic City News has learned that there were over 1000 people total who attended the Tax Day Tea Party at the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument today between 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m.
A statement from the organizers: “We are a non-partisan grassroots movement that is tired of the Governments reckless spending of money that we don’t have on programs that we don’t need that will only end with unprecedented Government Control. The CBO (Congressional Budget Office) and numerous economic advisors agree that the current spending and proposed tax increases will only stand to hinder the growth in our ailing economy. History has proven that Tax Cuts are one sure way to get our economy back on track, not tax hikes and defiantely not handouts.”
