Anger over new taxes boils over

March 8, 2009 | 10:37 am

Call it the Fullerton Tea Party. Or maybe  a radio stunt. But it's clear there is some anger out there over the state tax hikes in the new California budget, and many gathered to fume Saturday in Fullerton. From the San Gabriel Valley Tribune:

Droves of angry taxpayers gathered Saturday to protest tax increases in the recently approved state budget and to rally for the recall of Republicans who supported the increases -- or didn't do enough to stop them. Tax Revolt 2009 was hosted by KFI-AM talk-show hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou in a parking lot behind the Slidebar Cafe in Fullerton. They support recall efforts against Assemblyman Anthony Adams, R-Claremont; state Sen. Abel Maldonado, R-Santa Maria; and Assemblyman Jeff Miller, R-Corona.
