Tea-party favorites such as Stephen Fincher of Tennessee were swept into Congress on a wave of anger
over government-funded bailouts of banks.

for re-election campaigns from the same Wall Street firms whose
excesses they criticized. They have taken no significant steps
to curb them or prevent future taxpayer-financed rescues.
Republican freshmen have made clear their disdain for
expanding government, and openly opposed a financial regulatory
overhaul enacted by Democrats in 2010 before the newcomers
arrived in Washington. Their ranks include 10 Tea Party-backed
freshmen on the House Financial Services Committee, part of a
force that won election in a populist backlash to government
