Iowans showed their displeasure at the Capitol today by gathering in peaceful protest at a Tea Party. Thousands
Hundreds of Iowans listened to speakers on the west side of the building on Tax Day and held signs saying “Give us liberty, not debt,” “Taxed Enough Already,” “Don’t Tax Me Bro!” and “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
Iowans have come out against taxes previously this legislative session by showing up in droves to a public hearing on the elimination of Federal Deductibility, a proposal that Democrats brought before the House. The public out cry appears that it may be working as it was reported in the Des Moines Register today that the Federal Deductibility Tax plan ‘dead this session,’ some Dems predict.
House Republicans will standby Iowa taxpayers and continue to fight against policies that seek to increase taxes on Iowa families.
