    Tea Party members meet with Tennessee Representative Mark Pody to discuss legislation in Nashville Tennessee

    Tea Party members meet with Tennessee Representative Mark Pody (back) to discuss legislation in Nashville, Tennessee April 4, 2012. In 2010, Republicans wooed the Tea Party movement, promising them lower taxes and constitutionally limited government - where real power would devolve to the states and the federal government would be restricted to areas like national defense. In return, Tea Party activists helped Republicans expand majorities in red states like Tennessee and take the U.S. House of Representatives and 20 state legislative chambers around the country. These Republican majorities have pushed voter identification and anti-abortion bills, or followed Wisconsin's lead in curtailing public sector workers' collective bargaining rights.
