Some Tea Partiers are calling for at least a thorough audit of the Federal Reserve Bank, too. Both movements have attracted the interest of some non-wealthy (or less wealthy) citizens who want to know exactly what the super-rich have been doing with our national money. Although the goals of the movements as such are different, I'd bet that, if the average man or woman in either movement were allowed to watch the full audit, his or her reaction would be identical.

But here's a new web page a Tea Party group have constructed to explain just part of the problem they see:

(This is not to be confused with the National Right to Work site; it's specifically about the corruption that forms when public employees belong to unions.)
