LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - Protesters around the country are gearing up to rally against tax day with “tea parties.”

Organizers say they’re steamed at government spending since President Barack Obama’s administration took over and are planning their own mini-revolts. The rallies are designed to echo the original Boston Tea Party more than 235 years ago.

The demonstrations are being held everywhere from Kentucky, which just passed tax increases on cigarettes and alcohol, to South Carolina, where the governor has repeatedly criticized the stimulus package. Large protests also are expected in California, New York and Atlanta.
