Bait and switch nastiness. Who else would be that mean?

Strib reporting, here:

GOP Reps. Blake Farenthold of Texas, Doug Lamborn of Colorado and Dennis Ross of Florida, all of whom identify with the Tea Party, said they’d back an agreement to end the government shutdown and lift the debt ceiling if it included major revisions to U.S. tax law, and significant changes to Medicare and Social Security, as well as other policy shifts.

Let me get this straight. Let the sop to the insurance firms stand.

But in its place don't argue about unplugging granny. Bend over granny as if she's Ben Dover, the Ramsey taxpayer? Needing her Social Secuity and Medicare. Promised entitlements, but then what's a promise, these days? Suck it up, granny, the House delegation of doom needs to see suffering, sacrifice and appreciation from you for how they care.

Neat things from such gentlemen. Have they Michele Bachmann, Minnesota's CD6 Tea Party maven aboard ship?

I bet that would be leading to shouted hosannas from Bachmann's elderly true believers. You think?

____________UPDATE____________
More from that Strib report of the butcher, baker and candlestick maker, one touting the virtue of stoking generational warfare, it seems:

Farenthold was a conservative radio talk-show host when he won election in 2010, defeating 28-year incumbent Democrat Solomon Ortiz.

The battle over health care, he said, was for “another day.”

“It will collapse under its own weight, especially when the young people — who are going to be under the individual mandate — start screaming at what they’re having to pay for,” he said.

Farenthold said he’d back a spending deal with tax code changes and entitlement reforms aimed at “getting people who are able to work back to work.”

And let's be specific.

Farenthold. From Texas. Roots. Farenthold. Talk radio roots. Clear Channel talk show barker he was. Clear Channel being the bane Bain of our existence.


___________FURTHER UPDATE___________
If you follow those links, Farenthold's granny is mentioned, and with an apparent net worth of eight million, Farenthold believes it best and is aiming to see others with less suffer. Great men, these Texas Republicans. Links also show McCaul, a House Republican from Texas is awash in Clear Channel millions, with a tie by marriage to Clear Channel's founder.
