Tax Day sparks Colorado protests
April 15, 2010
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – It’s Tax Day – and that means lots of protests against the size of federal government.
More than a dozen protests are planned across Colorado Thursday to mark April 15, the day most federal income taxes are due.
Some of the biggest rallies will be outside the state Capitol and in Fort Collins, where 2006 GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez (bow-PRAY’) will talk to members of the Tea Party of Northern Colorado.
Tax Day protesters generally fear the nation is headed the wrong way and want to promote a return to conservative principles and smaller government.
