The Coffee Party Movement USA is a grassroots formed in January 2010 as an alternative to the Tea Party and has grown into an increasingly diverse organization. The Coffee Party USA officially identifies itself as a 501(c)(4) social benefit organization. The organization’s mission states that it is based on the underlying principle that the government is “not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges we face as Americans.” Its slogan is “Wake Up and Stand Up.” Its stated goals include getting cooperation in government and removing corporate influence from politics. The organization’s first National Coffee Party Day was held on March 13, 2010.

Issues surrounding tax breaks for billionaires, and Bernie Sanders D-Vermont stated have crystalized the Congress’ inability to describe a path to preserving the democracy. Back room meetings, opaque discussions by the Congress have further eroded the public’s confidence in the ability of the Congress to produce any legislation that helps the jobless recovery produce benefits to the middle class and Seniors.
