WAUSAU (WAOW)--The Tea Party movement reached Wausau. Political protesters gathered downtown to show their disapproval with Washington. They take issue with illegal immigration and taxing the use of energy.

"I have a problem that every time the government says they are trying to do something for the people, they want to tax us for it. They want to charge people for it. We can't afford anymore taxes. We can't afford any of these penalties that are going on," says protester Dan Mielke who's running for 7th district congress.

Protesters began the rally at the 400 block and finished outside Congressman Dave Obey's office door. Tea Party rallies continue in our area this weekend.
