Mostly I just blame the fact that most people want something for nothing now days.

This question is a bit misleading. "Tea party" legislators are a subgroup of Republicans. There are no Democratic "tea partiers."

I believe that all politicians have had a part in this recession. They all lie, steal, and in my eyes can not be trusted.

Tim: "This question is a bit misleading. "Tea party" legislators are a subgroup of Republicans. There are no Democratic "tea partiers." Imagine how partisan and ugly the politics would be if there was. The last thing business needs in this country is another political faction splitting us even more!

Democrats controlled all branches of goverment and did not pass a budget last year so the answer is obvious.

Everyday that congress meets you lose a little more of your liberty.
