Instead they took cuts agreed on by the Biden group off the table and insisted that Republicans "buy them back" with tax increases.

    what a joke.

    No america is hearing the spin from people like yourself who have no idea what the Tea Party is about, but just regurgitates political talking points they have heard. How many tea party meetings have you gone to? How many tea party members have you asked "What are you guys all about? Did you know a lot of people think your radical and racist?" How much valid policy (not political) information have your read on the Tea Party? My guess is 1.) None 2.) None and 3.) None and 4.) None.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sure it is ... in some states anyway.

    A Tea Party party registers in Florida - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com

    They can easily register in all states if they so choose. So why don't they?

    I suppose if it's not a party, Teabagger really is more appropriate than Teapartier.

    Not in my state... perhaps you should ask the Republican who registered in Florida that question. Why don't socialists run as commie socialists instead of Democrats? Send me the memo when the Tea Party registers federally... or for that matter the social... er... liberals decide to run as socialists.
