U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-6) filed paperwork Thursday to start a House Tea Party Caucus in order to promote a call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution, and limited government.
"The American people are speaking out loud and clear. They have had enough of the spending, the bureaucracy, and the government knows best mentality running rampant today throughout the halls of Congress. This caucus will espouse the timeless principles of our founding, principles that all Members of Congress have sworn to uphold. The American people are doing their part and making their voices heard and this caucus will prove that there are some here in Washington willing to listen."
In addition, Rand Paul says that he would like to start a Tea Party Caucus in the Senate if he wins the election in November.
