Five Years Since the Tea Party Rant


Yesterday marked five years since Rick Santelli went on CNBC and delivered a blistering rant against the then-current political landscape in dealing with the Great Recession. Glenn Beck has even credited Santelli with starting the Tea Party Movement. Several members of Congress today associate with the Tea Party. Santelli spoke with Business Insider about the anniversary. In the interview, he said he has no regrets, he had no planning with the speech, and he called it “Professionally the best five minutes of my life.”
