    Tax Hike Backers Rally At State Capitol, Thousands Turn Out (VIDEO)

    First Posted: 04-21-10 10:58 AM | Updated: 04-21-10 02:41 PM

    An estimated 15,000 people gathered at the Capitol in Springfield Wednesday calling for a tax increase that could stave off major budget cuts. The gathering, dubbed the "Save Our State" rally virtually shut down traffic around the Capitol building and is expected to be one of the largest demonstrations ever in Springfield. <more>

    Ima get my other nutjobs, grab our guns and go rally for Equal Taxes. Man I am a nutjob for wanting equality in all forms!! I bet I'm racist too because I think color doesn't matter when we pay taxes either

    No need to rally. They can just pay more in taxes. I wonder if anyone in that crowd voluntarily pays more in taxes?
