Tea-party mania: Taxpayers to storm White House

Thousands of taxpayers from across the nation are planning to descend on the White House Thursday, and a million more are expected to take their fight against excessive spending, growth of big government and soaring deficits to more than 700 rallies in U.S. cities this week.

Tea Party Patriots estimates that there are currently 737 Tax Day tea party events scheduled by local organizations across the nation.
