(CNN) - Prominent tea party voices are calling for action following the fiscal cliff votes this week in Washington.

Amy Kremer, leader of the group Tea Party Express, said Thursday she is “outraged” over the deal, which was struck between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Vice President Joe Biden. It allows tax rates on wealthy earners – families earning over $450,000 and individuals earning over $400,000 – expire while extending the tax breaks passed under President George W. Bush for earners below those thresholds.

“We elected the House of Representatives - we have the majority, theRepublicans have the majority there. We still control part of the government and the House controls the purse strings,” Kremer said on CNN.
