Tax Protesters Launch Online March on Washington

Register now

Tea Party activists are planning an Online Tax Revolt that will send an army of avatars on a virtual march on Washington on Tax Day, April 15.

The interactive march is being spearheaded by conservative activists such as former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist. It also includes some current members of Congress, such as Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas. The campaign is protesting the tax policies of the Obama administration.

FairTax proponent Ken Hoagland is chairing the campaign. “We need taxes that are lower and a tax structure that’s fair,” he said in a statement.

One team of avatars will be led by Ronald Reagan’s eldest son Michael Reagan and another by syndicated radio host Neal Boortz. The march will also include state-based teams and veterans’ teams. Activists also plan to stage in-person protests in Washington and other locations that day.
