Today, our good friend, Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party in Alabama testified before the House Ways and Means Committee on her experience getting persecuted by the IRS.   What is so unique about her testimony is not just the details she provides with regards to the IRS witch hunt against her organization, but how she passionately connects the IRS behavior with the broader problem of a tyrannical government that is threatening all of the founding ideals which made this country so great.

She also made all of us in the Tea Party proud of who we are and what we stand for.  The left constantly demonizes us and lumps us in with their own special interests as uncompromising political operatives.  The truth is that most tea party leaders are like Becky – middle class moms who simply feel that our country, as founded, is deteriorating due to the destruction of the civil society and big government.  Unlike the special interest juke boxers from K Street who typically testify before this committee, Becky represented something new and refreshing.
