Sen. Mike Lee says the 2012 election will be bigger for the Tea Party than 2010, and that could cause problems for GOP leadership in Washington.
Lee tells the Daily Caller that both parties ignore the Tea Party at their own peril.
“According to CNN, the values of the tea party represent the values of 75 percent of Americans,” Lee insists.
The Utah senator is less than optimistic about the deliberative outcome of the Joint Congressional Committee on Deficit Reduction. And he predicts a tea party backlash if the “super committee” it doesn’t do a satisfactory job.
