Bryan Fischer: Keep Monday Noon Open for Tea Party II

April 30th, 2009 by Halli

The governor, despite being dressed down by a grandma in Midvale – “If I had been your mother, I would have come up there and spanked your little butt” – seems foolishly and mindless determined to raise our taxes in the midst of the worst Idaho downturn in decades.

Rep. Raul Labrador said yesterday on the Nate Shelman show (on KBOI, 670 AM) that the messages from his constituents are running 4-1 or 5-1 against any gas tax increase at all. The governor and the senate are simply on the wrong side of the people, the wrong side of history, and the wrong side of economic policy on this one.

Since the House leaders I have talked with indicate that the House is not prepared to budge, an Idaho stand-off looms, with the likelihood that the Senate will call the House back into a fruitless and expensive extended session on Monday.

Remember, the meter will be running at $30,000 a day – of your money – and you will have the governor and the senate to thank.

If the House gets called back, please come if you can to the Capitol Annex – adjacent to the state capitol, which is being renovated – for a 30 minute rally from noon to 12:30 p.m. on Monday.

Several fiscally conservative lawmakers have already confirmed that they will speak at the rally on Monday, should it become necessary, and Nate Shelman has agreed to serve as the M.C.

It’s time for the people to let the governor and the senate know that we, the people, want them to keep their hands out of our wallets. Plan to bring your selves, your babies in strollers, your signs, and your energy.
