TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Tea party activists are angry about the passage of health care reform and vow to make supporters pay at the polls and work to scuttle the law.
Grass-roots chapters across the country vow to support attorneys general who plan a lawsuit seeking to declare the law unconstitutional. They are demanding the bill be repealed or not funded and want to kick out of office all supporters of the measure.
Some tea party organizers see the health care debate as a galvanizing force that could stir its followers to greater action and something to rally around with midterm elections this year.
The number of tea party groups has been growing. Most share a belief that government spending and influence should be limited.
