The Tea Party is actually just another (new) name for the old evangelical "Moral Majority" created by the likes of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Jesse Helms and Ralph Reed. The Moral Majority/Tea Party has surely been co-opted, since it's inception, by far-right economic conservatives like the Koch brothers, but those fat-cat conservatives were never actually the Moral Majority or the Tea Party's initial "roots".
