Today is the one-year anniversary of the Tea Party. #tcot This is a movement that has shaped the political discussion for the past year and has forced the government to be more accountable at the risk of losing elections.
Exactly one year ago today, a financial reporter for CNBC provided the spark that ignited the TEA Party movement. What started it? Rick Santelli merely upset that his money was going to be given to the irresponsible – and that is NOT the American way. Or, used to be.
You know it is working when the people in power change their positions to align with the movement. The only answer the opposition has is filthy name calling and slurs.
