Some tension apparently lingers between the tea party movement and the Republican establishment. Mark Meckler, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, says local tea partyers are mad as heck about last week’s budget compromise. And they’re already looking for primary challengers to run against GOP congressmen who vote in favor of the deal, he tells The Hill.

Most Republicans in Congress apparently are prepared to accept the risk. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor predicted Tuesday that the House will pass the bill with "strong Republican support."
