Tea Party groups across the country unveiled the movement's "Contract from America" on Wednesday, one day before proponents plan to rally and protest in honor of Tax Day.

The "Contract from America" is the Tea Party activists' "legislative blueprint for 2010 and beyond" -- a document of ten principles and priorities outlining the movement's agenda for the road ahead.
