President Obama and VP Biden will be announcing $2.5 Billions dollars of new "stimulus" spending at the Bob Martinez Sports Center at the University of Tampa on Thursday, Jan 28, 2010. We are protesting this low-value, high-cost, deficit increasing and unwanted spending.
We all need to be prepared in case we are asked questions by a reporter. The American Dream Coalition has an excellent paper, entitled Why Florida Should Not Build High Speed Rail, which summarizes the reasons why the proposed rail project will be an extremely low-value White Elephant that should be reject. Please prepare yourself by by reading this paper before the rally.
The Rally is from 10:30 AM until 1 PM. Traffic conditions will be difficult. I recommend planning on arriving around 10AM.
The Rally point is at the intersection of North Boulevard and W Kennedy. (See the Google Map.)
