Open thread on anniversary of Boston Tea Party

I’ve only been posting here at RedState for a little over a month. I probably don’t have sufficient standing to prompt an open thread discussion. But I’ll try.

Today marks the 236th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. The historic event inspired the naming of a movement that played a big role in our recent midterm elections. Six weeks out from that political shift, where do we the people stand? Are leaders standing by their promises?

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate passed a $858 billion dollar budget bill comprised of spending provisions and tax cuts, some of which are earmarks. Lawmakers haven’t passed any plan to pay for this bill. The House is expected to vote on it today.

Seems like an important time to check in on the state of a movement.
