Tea Party Group Founder Becky Gerritson To Congress: "You've Forgotten Your Place"

Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party in Alabama tells her to House members at the congressional hearings dealing with IRS targeting of Tea Party organizations, patriots and pro-Israel groups.

"I'm not here as a serf or a vassal. I’m not begging my lords for mercy. I’m a born free American woman. Wife, mother, and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you've forgotten your place. It is not your responsibility to look out for my well-being and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty, and you have faltered," Gerritson said during her testimony to Congress on Tuesday.
