Arizonahas a chance to set a great example for America.Arizona has the worstbudget deficitin the country, on a per-capita basis, because of the huge spending increases enacted byGov. Janet Napolitanoand theLegislatureduring the past six years.If Arizona can resolve this crisis without raising taxes, we will do the nation a great service.Arizona can serve as a counter-example to the dangerous national trend of tax-and-spendcrisis management.

It isvery importantfor Tea Partiers and other Southwest Valley taxpayers to come to this event. Thetown hall meetingssponsored by other organizations tend to be dominated by the spending lobbies, whose members come in large numbers to beg legislators to raise taxes and spend more of your hard-earned money.
AFPF-Arizona wants to send another bigTHANK YOUto the thousands of taxpayer activists who came to the April 15 Tea Party at theArizona State Capitol. You took an important stand in the fight to save our country from the Big Taxers, BigSpenders, and Big Debtors who are trying to lead us down the road toward ever-bigger government. Like you, we are fed up with tax increases, federal bailouts, mounting debt burdens on our grandchildren, and government takeovers of theprivate sector(including health care).
Please forward this announcement to other Southwest Valley taxpayers and Tea Partiers!
