ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Tea Party movement and how it is influencing American politics. It states that Tea Party-aligned politicians such as Michele Bachmann and Louie Gohmert claimed that there would be no financial repercussions to not raising the U.S. debt limit. It mentions that while an overwhelming number of Americans want more compromise in U.S. politics, the 25 percent of Americans who consider themselves supporters of the Tea Party are against compromise. It comments that while research has shown the 2009 Stimulus Plan proposed by President Barack Obama, which utilizes the economic theory created by economist John Maynard Keynes, would stimulate the economy, Tea Party supporters dismiss Keynesian economics and related research data.
