Mass. tea party groups plan Boston anti-tax rally
BOSTON (AP) — The Greater Boston Tea Party is holding a rally on Boston Common to call for lower taxes and a smaller federal deficit.
The group is also hoping to show that the conservative movement is alive and well in a state more typically associated with liberal and moderate Democrats.
The group said it hopes the rally will help bring attention to what it calls the need to cut government spending and reduce the financial burden on future generations.
The Saturday rally is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. at the Parkman Bandstand.
One of those planning to attend the rally is Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Daniel Winslow.
Supporters say they also hope to forge stronger connections between tea party groups, gun owners, Libertarians, Republicans and independent voters.
