The Nassau County Young Republicans will be hosting a Long Island Tea Party on Saturday, April 25, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event will be held in Levittown Veteran's Memorial Park, and will include notable speakers such as Brett Joshpe, renowned author and attorney, and KT McFarland, Security Advisor in the Reagan Administration and regular Fox News contributor.
"Between the federal government's 'stimulus' package and the New York State budget, Long Islanders are getting slammed with an unbearable tax burden," said YR President Simon Spero. "It comes as no surprise that young people, who will foot the bill for much of this new spending, are lashing out against wasteful programs."
Rick Santelli of CNBC called for a series of Tea Parties across the nation in response to irrational government spending. Although the Young Republican's event was not held on April 15 like most of the tea parties, it will convey the same basic message. Americans won't stand by and let the government waste their money or their kid's money.
Assemblyman Rob Walker, who is a Young Republican himself, said, "I think this is a great way to get the very people who are being forced out of New York by the high cost of living involved in government and social awareness. I am proud to support this group and the cause of lower taxes and less government spending."
The Nassau County Young Republicans is a social organization open to all Republicans ages 14 to 40. If you are over the age of 18, you must be enrolled as a Republican in order to join. Meetings are generally held on the fourth Thursday of each month. More information is available online at www.NassauYRs.com or by emailing GoGOP@NassauYRs.com.
