On April 15th limited government activists from across the country will participate in over 500 tea parties, with 19 scheduled in Oregon. The tea party movement began in response to corporate and mortgage bailouts, the $1 trillion dollar debt stimulus plan, and President Obama’s $2 trillion dollar budget deficit. April 15 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 will rally 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 Patriots of Resistnet.com, Oregon Contactors Association, We Surround Them, 9-12 Project, Oregon Tea Party, Concerned Oregonians, Americans for Prosperity, and the Campaign for Liberty.
