NPR's Michele Norris talks to former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey. Armey was one of the architects of the Republican takeover of Congress in the 1990s -- a political movement known as the Republican Revolution. Though he retired from Congress in 2002, he has remained a political force in Washington through his nonprofit organization dedicated to organizing around a conservative, anti-tax, small government agenda. Armey's group, called FreedomWorks, helped elect several Tea Party candidates.
