So here is what the Tea Party has wrought:

1. they shut down the Federal government over Obamacare but couldn't stop the funding of Obamacare with a government shutdown.

2. Then they agreed to pay for the non-functioning government.

House votes to approve back pay for furloughed workers

Genius.

Can't wait til they take over the Treasury. Maybe they'll print money on only one side to cut the deficit.
