Today I joined Michele Bachmann and 50 other Members of Congress in creating the House Tea Party Caucus to promote America’s call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution, and limited government.

Everywhere I go, my constituents are clear - they have had enough of the spending, the bureaucracy, and the government knows best mentality running rampant today.

The House Tea Party Caucus will espouse the timeless principles of our founding fathers - principles that all Members of Congress have sworn to uphold.
