The Minnesota Taxpayers League announced today that Grover Norquist, with Americans for Tax Reform, will headline the annual Taxpayers Rally at the State Capitol on April 27.
Norquist is best known for fiercely opposing tax hikes on the federal level. His “Taxpayer Protection Pledge” asks candidates for U.S. House and Senate oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes. The Taxpayers League says all but 16 Republican members on the House and six Republican Senators have signed the pledge.
“The Taxpayers League of Minnesota is excited to have an individual with such great national identity and inside knowledge of DC politics speaking at our rally,” said Phil Krinkie, President of the Taxpayers League of Minnesota.
The annual Taxpayer Rally is meant to protest government spending and high taxes.
Former presidential candidate Herman Cain headlined the rally last year.
