It's Tax Day 2010 and the Tea Party is holding rallies across the country to push their conservative, small government message. This year a number of anti-Tea Party groups are out in force too.

From coast to coast, here are some of the key developments from today's Tax Day rallies and events:

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.
