    You may have noticed the minority teabagger mob in congress wields a ton of influence now. because of them it took well over a year to pass a basic transportation bill-- a bill that in the past probably took all of six weeks to pass. and because of this, 1,000's of construction workers were idle, not spending money in our consumer spending-driven economy.

    Now they are blocking the deal to avoid the fiscal bluff, because they insist there be NO new taxes for their wealthy class masters.

    Matt Kibbe was on PBS Newshour recently, pointing out the teaparty has moved beyond the protest phase and is working on getting more people elected to congress.

    Great.

    Where's the progressive counter to this?
