The Tea Party movement was founded in 2009 to advocate smaller government, lower taxes, and a smaller national debt. According to a CBS News poll, 18 per cent of Americans identify themselves as Tea Party supporters.

Historically, the name Tea Party refers to the Boston Tea Party in 1773. The Boston Tea Party sparked the American Revolution when a group of British colonists decided to protest high taxes on tea. They refused to accept a shipment from England, dumping boxes of tea into the Boston Harbor in protest. The Tea Party's name also stands for "Taxed Enough Already!"

Tea Party supporters want to change the way people think about how we allow the government to spend tax dollars. They want the government to stay within a budget and only spend what it has.

Tea Party supporters also want to make sure our elected officials in Washington, DC listening to the people.
