(Newser) – The Democrats are in for a rude awakening if they think they can pass health care reform and get away with it, incensed Tea Party leaders warned yesterday. Tea Party groups across the country plan protests and a campaign to force the people who voted for reform out of Congress this November, AP reports.

The movement plans to throw its weight behind state attorneys general seeking to declare the reforms unconstitutional. Activists say the defeat has only energized the movement further. "We will be more determined than ever to see that this country is governed the way the Constitution intended," vowed one Alabama activist. "We are all getting our second wind. When we do, you'd better watch out."
