I called for a Tea Party Caucus to bring members’ attention to the cries of everyday Americans who are asking for a return to the fundamental principles contained within our nation’s greatest document, the Constitution.
And I have talked to many people who felt discouraged because no one in Washington, D.C. seemed willing to listen. This caucus will change that sentiment and ensure the voices of the people are carried through the halls of Congress.
— Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.)
Does the Tea Party really want (or need) congressional leadership, and shouldn’t Michele Bachmann have taken the time to ask (and not arrogantly assume) the entire Tea Party wanted any political representation?
