HARDtalk - Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks


The US Republican Party has taken control of the House of Representatives in mid-term elections, delivering a severe blow to President Barack Obama's ability to pass laws. The conservative Tea Party movement has been credited with the Republican resurgence. Matt Kibbe is the president of FreedomWorks - a right wing lobby group that has been instrumental in mobilising the thousands of grassroots activists that form the movement. Stephen Sackur asks him what's next for the Tea Party and if they plan to use their newfound power to hold Congress to ransom.
