Tea Party protests
The Tea Party movement is a populist movement and popular United States of America, a supporter of fiscal conservatism and smaller government. The name is a reference to the Boston Tea Party, which was one of the events leading to the American Revolution in the eighteenth century. The movement has its origins in events organized in response to the bailout of the banking sector, following the 2008 financial crisis, and especially against the government stimulus package of 787 billion dollars proposed by the Government and adopted by Barack Obama the United States Congress.
The movement has gained scale in the public disclosure of the amount of bonuses paid to executives of American International Group, bailed out by the first stimulus from the government.

The movement is very diverse, however - like the only Florida, which has 80 different names - and failed again to unite all factions like the Tea Party Patriots (Chicago) and Tea Party Express (California) who did not attend the national convention in Nashville.
