Summary

In living rooms across America, citizens are struggling to pay their taxes and also struggling to believe that the same congressmen they elected on promises of not increasing those taxes are not planning to do just the opposite. Sally Jefferson is one of those Americans, but she's not just going to mouth off to her coworkers about how tough it is. She and her friends are going to DO something about it this time, and prove that democracy still works in the process. Taxpayers' Tea Partyis more than a manual for political revenge; it's step-by-step guide in cartoon form to carry out our own American Revolution.
