Tax Day "Tea Party" Protestors Rally Around The Country

SANTA MONICA, CA - APRIL 15: Juan Bedoya, an immigrant from Colombia, demonstrates at an American Family Association (AFA)-sponsored T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) Party to protest taxes and economic stimulus spending on the last day to file state and federal income tax returns, April 15, 2009 in Santa Monica, California. The protesters say that taxes and government spending are too high while the Obama administration contends that it is lowering taxes for 95 percent of the population and using stimulus money to save the nation from economic collapse. Several T.E.A. or Tea Party rallies are being held in southern California, a play on the name of the 1773 Boston Tea Party tax revolt in which disgruntled Americans rebelled against British colonial taxation. The American Family Association is a conservative Christian political activist group focusing on what it views as negative liberal influences of television, abortion rights, gay rights, pornography, and premarital sex. The group also owns 180 American Family Radio stations in 28 states. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
