Duluth, MN (Northlands NewsCenter)
-- Tax day prompted protesters to gather at Duluth's Federal Building today in opposition to the current tax code.

Around 50 supporters of "Take Action Minnesota" called on Minnesota House Representative Chip Cravaack to support the Buffet Rule, which stops millionaires from paying lower taxes than working class Americans.

The group was met by Pro-Cravaack supporters and the groups spent a lot the time trying to yell over each other.

When the yelling quieted down, take action Minnesota members made their point saying the tax system needs drastic change.

Congressman Cravaack responded by saying the buffet rule will do nothing to close the deficit and that a small business tax cut would be more effective in giving 22 million small businesses in the US a much needed 20 percent tax break to hire and reinvest.
