Tea Party Tax Day gave NE AR residents a voice

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A group gathered outside the Courthouse in Downtown Jonesboro Friday evening to tell Congress that they're tired of being taxed.

Petitions were available to sign and informational books were at the Tea Party Tax Day as well.

Speaker Elizabeth Aymond says events like these help to inform the public.

"They can get educated on the issues and see what's really going on with their hard-earned tax dollars. Where all the tax dollars are going and where government is spending it," Aymond said.

Multiple speakers were at the event, including Representative Jon Hubbard.

The event lasted until 8 p.m.
