Rallies Against Taxes Slated for Today

UNDATED (AP) - It's a high-stress day for income tax
procrastinators who have a midnight deadline to file their returns.
It's also going to be a day of protests across the country by
people who feel they are Taxed Enough Already -- TEA -- hence the
name Tax Day Tea Parties.
Rallies against government spending are scheduled across the
nation, more than 235 years after the original Boston Tea Party tax
revolt.
Organizers say they're steamed at government spending since
President Barack Obama's administration took over.
They started yesterday when about 200 people gathered at the
Missouri state Capitol.
Rallies are planned today in many states, including Georgia,
South Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Maryland, Hawaii, Rhode Island and
Alabama.
In New Hampshire, state employees are hitting the street to
speak out against cuts aimed at public employee jobs.
