ABSTRACT
The author talks about his boycott of the tea parties held in New York in April 2009 where people earning more than $250,000 yearly are protesting tax hikes on their income. They are protesting the out-of-control spending in Washington such as $787 billion stimulus bill and the bailouts of banks and automakers. The author notes that potential Republican contenders in 2012 are using the occasion to obtain support for their bids. He says that U.S. President Barack Obama is set to implement his tax cuts that allow small businesses to offset their losses.
