White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel sat down on 60 Minutes to discuss the Obama administration's efforts to pass health care reform, Congressional elections later this year, and the influence of the Tea Party on Republicans.

The Tea Party loves to talk about voting out Democrats who voted for health care reform come November, but Emanuel said that allowing a "fringe group" to exert such influence over the GOP will ultimately backfire.
