It’s Tough to Ignore 1,000 People at a City Council Meeting

I think Glenn is being way too kind every time he credits me with the idea of the Tea Party folks applying pressure at the local government level, but I’m gleeful every time I hear of another example.

About 700 to 1,000 people turned out to tell the Tucson City Council to scrap their idea of raising taxes on renters 2 percent. Not long ago, protesters beat back a proposal for a property tax hike in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

If similar phenomenon are going on in your neck of the woods, Glenn and I want to hear about it.
