Annual NC conservative rally opposing new taxes

By GARY D. ROBERTSON - Associated Press Writer
Published: Wed, Jun. 03, 2009 07:20AM

Modified Wed, Jun. 03, 2009 06:37PM


RALEIGH, N.C. -- "Joe the Plumber" says adding taxes on services - like
plumbing, perhaps - isn't the way to go in North Carolina.

Samuel Wurzelbacher, who became a hero to some Republicans during the presidential campaign when he challenged Barack Obama on taxes, said Wednesday at a conservative rally that a tax on more services - such as those proposed by some General Assembly members - would only get passed on to consumers.

"It's the wrong way of doing things. You can't keep taking away from the people," he said as the "Take Back Our State" rally began on the Halifax Mall behind the Legislative Building.

Senate Democrats this spring rolled out a tax package that would raise
$1 billion in additional funds over the next two years by increasing
the number of services that would be taxed but lowering overall rates.

Reworking the state's tax code is one of many ways being discussed - including other taxes and deep spending cuts - to narrow a $4.6 billion budget gap for the coming year. Gov. Beverly Perdue's budget proposal sought higher cigarette and alcohol taxes.

State government needs to prioritize, Wurzelbacher said.

"The citizens of North Carolina have to step up and say 'No, you've been spending our money time and time and time again,'" said Wurzelbacher during a break from signing autographs and getting his picture taken by passers-by. "You can't take care of everybody. Our system doesn't work that way."

The event came a day after more than 80 nonprofit groups and service providers pleaded with lawmakers to raise taxes because they argued proposed spending reductions could mean layoffs for tens of thousands of state employees and private-sector workers and leave the poor and sick more vulnerable.

Citizens who have been laid off or furloughed and have paid higher taxes in recent years can't afford another hit to their wallets, said Dallas Woodhouse, state director of Americans for Prosperity, the event sponsor.

"We don't believe the people of North Carolina can take another tax
increase," Woodhouse said. "I think they have sacrificed enough."

About 1,500 registered but Woodhouse predicted as many as 3,000 ultimately would attend the annual event, which had the feel of a conservative fair with politically minded groups setting up booths on the mall.

Participants withstood the 90-degree heat under tents listening to
music and eating hot dogs and barbecue before several speakers.
"Don't Tread on Me" flags were popular with attendees as well as handmade placards critical of state government and Perdue.

Heather Neal, 33, of Fayetteville, who carried a sign that read "Bev Perdue, I'm Sick of You," said she attended the rally "for people who pay their taxes and work to pay their taxes and couldn't be here."

Neal, a discount store supervisor, accused Perdue of going back on her word by failing to protect public education during the budget crisis.

Perdue has required all state employees - including schoolteachers - to take a 0.5 percent pay cut, but they haven't been laid off.

The rally came as House Democrats met privately inside the Legislative Building to gauge support for higher taxes to relive some of the cuts.

Joe the Plumber joins rally against tax increases

By: News 14 Carolina Staff
June 3, 2009

RALEIGH – Joe the Plumber is in Raleigh Wednesday for a rally outside the General Assembly against raising taxes.

Tuesday, nonprofit organizations from all across the state rallied at the same spot in support of raising taxes to balance the state's struggling
budget.

But Wednesday Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, who rose to
fame last year when he asked then-senator Barack Obama about his tax plan, joined protesters at a tea party rally.

Organizers with the Take Back Our State coalition say they expect 2,000 people to attend. Protestors want to let state lawmakers know they don't want to see higher taxes to make up for the $4.6 billion budget shortfall.

"Pay your dues, serve your country, but don't let the country take advantage of you," Wurzelbacher said.

Ron Setzer, a Winston-Salem resident, said he hopes the rally sends a message."We've asked them to reduce our taxes and quit spending money like crazy and they don't listen. And there are some of us who have just had enough," Setzer said.

Visit the link below for video recorded live at the rally.

Thousands of grassroots activists from all across the state converged on the North Carolina State Legislative Building in Raleigh last week to send a simple message: "No Increase in North Carolina Taxes!!!"

I wanted to share with you some of the great photos and news coverage your efforts received:

We were covered by all the major newspapers and local tv stations:

Some of our best photos are of the signs at the party:


If you have not done so please help keep the party going by visiting nonctaxhike.com and tell Governor Perdue you are against raising taxes.
