Arizona Organizations Rally
At Capitol To "Ax The Tax" - Stop Prop 100
Joe The Plumber To Headline Rally

Phoenix, Arizona-March 18, 2010-A coalition of pro-taxpayer and small business
organizations have asked Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher to headline a rally to be
held on Friday, March 26th, at 11 am, on the lawn of the Arizona State Capitol in
Phoenix, Arizona.

The rally is being held in response to the proposed 18% increase in the state sales
tax that will be on the ballot for a vote on May 18th, 2010. The coalition has come
together to fight an increase in taxes during this long and difficult recession.
The coalition is composed of various groups including: Ax The Tax - No on 100, the
Arizona Chapter of Americans for Prosperity, National Federation of Independent
Business (NFIB), the Arizona Free Enterprise Club, the 2010 Project, the North
Phoenix Tea Party, Mesa Tea Party, East Valley Tea Party Patriots and the
PAChyderm Coalition.

With Arizona's economy already in trouble, unemployment at critical levels, and
consumer spending down from a few years ago, raising the sales tax during this
recession is an unwise choice that will only make things worse. Arizona's budget
solution should be to restore the size of the budget to a prudent and responsible

Along with Joe the Plumber, the rally will feature prominent speakers from the
sponsoring groups. This event is free and open to the public.
