Tea Party Express chairwoman, Amy Kremer, also said she is “disgusted” by the recent Fiscal Cliff compromise. According to Kremer, the Tea Party feels betrayed by former Tea Party darling, Paul Ryan, and Georgia Senator, Saxby Chambliss, who both voted for the deal.
“I live in the state of Georgia and Saxby Chambliss is going to be ‘primaried,’ our own senator,” she said. “It’s unacceptable to have somebody who votes with the Democrats more than they do with the conservatives, and he has proven time and time again he is all about the spending. And we’re a red state, we deserve a conservative senator.”
She went on to say:
“We elected the House of Representatives – we have the majority, the Republicans have the majority there. We still control part of the government and the House controls the purse strings,” Kremer said on CNN.
“At some point we’re going to have to come together and do what’s right for America, but do the Democrats have a mandate to go and just do whatever and just spend into oblivion? No,” she said. “And that’s evident because the Republicans still control the House.”
