Tea Party Members Rally State Capitol

ore than 500 Minnesota tea party members rallied outside the state Capitol Thursday to protest governments spending on the day taxes were due, according to WXOW.
Lawmakers were scarce at the event. Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann addressed the protesters via speakerphone from Washington, D.C.
"We're on to them; we're on to this gangster government," the NY Times reported Bachmann saying. "I'd say it's time for these little piggies to go home," she said.
Protestors spoke for several hours about repealing the health care bill, limiting government spending and ousting particular elected officials in fall's elections.
"If you're unsure when you get to the voting booth as to what to do, don't vote for any incumbent," Leon Moe, a veteran said to the crowd. "It may take us a cycle or two to take out the garbage, but we need to take the garbage out. We need to get the cesspools at the state levels cleaned out, and that should begin to drain the cesspools in Washington."
Tax Day rallies are a on-going tradition at the Capitol, and rallies were placed in at least 10 cities across the state, which included Duluth, Mankato, Rochester, Winona and more.
Signs, buttons and T-shirts were abundant at the protests.
Lisa Erbes, 37, of Burnsville, carried sign that said: "You work for me and come November, you're fired," the WCCO reported.
