McCain Blasts Tea Party

Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) called congressional members of the Tea Party "foolish" and "deceiving" for thinking they can withhold their support for any debt ceiling bill -- Republican or Democratic -- if there is no Balanced Budget Amendment included, ABC News reports.

Said McCain: "To hold out and say we won't agree to raising the debt limit until we pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the constitution. It's unfair, it's bizarre. And maybe some people have only been in this body for six or seven months or so really believe that. Others know better."
