Tea Party Protesters Rage On Tax Day 2010 (PICTURES)

The tax man cometh on Thursday and with him come numerous Tea Party rallies across the country -- and a few anti-Tea Party events too. From coast to coast Tea Party members will gather in cities and towns to protest taxes and the policies of the Obama administration.

But as the Tea Party movement gained momentum over the past year, groups have sprung up to oppose their conservative, small government message. Those counter-groups will be out in force on Thursday as well.

Here's a sampling of some of the events taking place all over the country on Tax Day:

The Pro-Obama Contingent

The Tea Partiers are being countered by a start-up group called "The Other 95%," which descended on D.C. on Thursday to protest "right across from Tea Party rally."

"Obama passed 25 separate tax cuts," Sheryl Stein, founding member of "The Other 95%" said in a statement announcing the group's plans, "including $300 billion in middle class tax cuts -- one of the largest in history - as part of the stimulus package. Unlike President Bush's 2001 tax cuts, which went to the wealthiest 2.2%, President Obama's tax cuts overwhelmingly benefit working and middle class families -- in fact, 95% of all Americans."

Here's the group's Facebook page.
