You have been hearing a lot about the Tea Party while the debt ceiling debate slogged through Congress.
A strong caveat of the Tea Party is "No new takes during a recession." Since many Tea Party members campaigned as this caveat as the bedrock of their platform, they stood their ground when Obama wanted "revenue" [Obama's cute code word for taxation] along with cuts.
Before going any further with this blog, I need to make sure you understand the Washington definition of the word "cut". The logical meaning of the word cut is to reduce or eliminate something. Washington doesn't think so. If an agency expects to get $1 million for a new project next year, but they only get $500,000, they claim they have been cut $500,000. Bush Limbaugh said the other day that if we just froze all spending for one year, Washington would count this as a $9 billion cut.
The list below will show that the Tea Party Caucus consists of 60 members of the Tea Party Movement. Much to Obama's and the liberal left's chagrin, this has become a force to reckon with.
FootInMouth Biden is reported to have referred to Tea Party folks as terrorists.
No, Biden. The 9/11 attacks were carried out by terrorists.
The folks you are talking about are patriots, willing to stick by their guns in the best interests of their country.
The Tea Party movement (TPM) is an American populist political movement that is generally recognized as conservative and libertarian, and has sponsored protests and supported political candidates since 2009. It endorses reduced government spending, opposition to taxation in varying degrees, reduction of the national debt and federal budget deficit, and adherence to an originalist interpretation of the United States Constitution.
The name "Tea Party" is a reference to the Boston Tea Party, a protest by colonists who objected to a British tax on tea in 1773 and demonstrated by dumping British tea taken from docked ships into the harbor. The Tea Party movement has caucuses in the House of Representatives and the Senate of the United States.
The Tea Party movement has no central leadership, but is composed of a loose affiliation of national and local groups that determine their own platforms and agendas. This fact is an apparent irritant to the old school party leadership, even in the Republican party.
The Tea Party's most noted national figures include Republican politicians such as Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, and Ron Paul, with Paul described as the "intellectual grandfather" of the movement. Though the Tea Party movement is not a national political party, polls show that most Tea Partiers consider themselves to be Republicans and it has tended to endorse Republican candidates.
An October 2010 Washington Post canvass of local Tea Party organizers found 87% saying "dissatisfaction with mainstream Republican Party leaders" was "an important factor in the support the group has received so far"
The Tea Party Caucus is a caucus of the United States House of Representatives and Senate launched and chaired by Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann on July 16, 2010. The caucus is dedicated to promoting what it considers fiscal responsibility, adherence to the movement's interpretation of the Constitution, and limited government.
The idea of a Tea Party Caucus originated from Kentucky Senator Rand Paul when he was campaigning for his current seat. The caucus was approved as an official congressional member organization by the House Administration Committee on July 19, 2010 and held its first meeting on July 21. Its first public event was a press conference on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, also on July 21. Four Senators joined the caucus on January 27, 2011. "
