On April 15th, limited government activists from across the country participated in over 1,000 tea parties, with 20 held in Oregon. The tea party movement began in response to corporate and mortgage bailouts, the $1 trillion debt stimulus plan, and President Obama’s $2 trillion dollar budget deficit. April 25 is the focus of the next round of tea parties, when Americans come face to face with the costs of bloated government and runaway spending. Oregonians rallied across the state. FreedomWorks has joined leading taxpayer watchdog groups such as the Taxpayer Association of Oregon, Taxpayer Defense Fund, Oregon Citizens For A Sound Economy PAC, Common Sense For Oregon, Oregon Contractors Association, We Surround Them, 9-12 Project, Oregon Tea Party, and the Campaign for Liberty. Our Medford rally will feature taxpayers, legislators, policy experts, and local talk radio hosts Bill Myer.
