Reid: Tea Party Will Falter When Economy Improves

WASHINGTON (January 8, 2011)--Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid dismisses the tea party as short-lived and says it will "disappear" once the economy gets better.

The Nevada Democrat prevailed last November in a tough re-election race against tea party-backed candidate Sharron Angle.

In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" that's set to air Sunday, Reid was asked if he believes the tea party will be a lasting political force.

Reid says the tea party movement emerged because of the country's economic problems but said the tea party will no longer exist when the economy improves, and he says the economy is getting better every day.

    All political parties that practice irresponsible speech and hate mongering should take heed. Civility has been pushed out for far too long. Americans deserve better than this.

    Tea Party will always be rejected by the American people. Tea party espouses hatred, violence, revolution, incivility, intolerance, threats and bullying ending in the way Arizona is now seeing. Killing Americans including children for politics.
