Tea Party Threatens GOP Over Debt

Looks like some Republican members of Congress might have some ‘splaining to do. The Tea Party Patriots tell CNN that if GOP lawmakers vote to raise the debt ceiling, the political group will make “examples” of them. “We’re holding these freshmen accountable,” said co-founder Martin. Other members of the movement echoed Martin’s requests, and some of the members of Congress’ so-called Tea Party Coalition said they frequently receive emails from the group to remind them to vote against raising the debt ceiling. The Tea Party has also targeted GOP lawmakers such as Sens. Olympia Snowe and Orrin Hatch for not being conservative enough.
