The Tea Party

The "Tea Party" or "Tea Party Movement" is an American political movement that is primarily known for advocating a reduction in the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit by reducing U.S. government spending and taxes.[1][2]They have been very outspoken against President Obama's agenda which has, as of April 2014, raised the total national debt to $17.6 trillion, an increase of 65 percent since he took office. The total debt that the federal government owes to the public has gone up 99.8 percent (essentially doubled) since the day Obama entered office, rising to $12.6 trillion[3].

It should be no surprise that our liberal media has made an assertive effort to misalign the movement, which is mostly conservative.
