Tea Party Gets Caucus

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has created a Tea Party Caucus in the U.S. Congress. To Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, who recently wrote about the caucus in his column, "Tea Party activists and Republican officeholders set aside any pretense about the two groups being separate." The caucus, founded this week, has 28 members of Congress and represents a real chance for Tea Party members to show their stuff. Critics say the group's activists have managed only to criticize President Obama and Dem leaders without offering up any alternative strategies.
