Patriot Groups throughout the Maricopa and North Pinal County area.
A coalition of pro-taxpayer and small business organizations asked Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher and J. D. Hayworth to headline a rally that was held on Friday, March 26th, on the lawn of the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix, Arizona. Jim Deakin also attended the event.
The rally is being held in response to the proposed 18% increase in the state sales tax that will be on the ballot for a vote on May 18th, 2010. The coalition has come together to fight an increase in taxes during this long and difficult recession.
The coalition is composed of various groups including: Ax The Tax - No on 100, the Arizona Chapter of Americans for Prosperity, National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the Arizona Free Enterprise Club, the 2010 Project, the North Phoenix Tea Party, Mesa Tea Party, East Valley Tea Party Patriots and the PAChyderm Coalition.
