Several tea-party leaders are getting frustrated with the Republicans in Congress and are making their voices heard.
Tea Party Nation Founder and President Judson Phillips has made the rounds of the talk shows to denounce the Republicans for giving in to Democratic pressure.
Phillips says the GOP has capitulated because it's not really a conservative party.
"You've got a wide range of viewpoints in the Republican Party," Phillips observed, "everything from good solid conservatives, good solid tea-party folks to RINOs [Republicans in name only] to folks who probably would be equally at home in the Democratic Party.
"The American people spoke loudly in this past election, which saw a shift of 60-some-odd seats in the House of Representatives. We've never had that big of a shift in the Congress before," Phillips continued. "People spoke very clearly about what they wanted."
