1. My own Rep, Kevin Yoder, is a freshman TeaBagger...
On his campaign website he had this last November:

I can't support legislation rammed through Congress that will raise our taxes, increase insurance premiums, and promise to make drastic cuts in Medicare. Americans deserve better than this law. I will work to repeal and defund this bad legislation that will drive up costs, increase the deficit, grow bureaucracy and lower the standards of health care that Americans expect. I will work to build true health care reform that focuses on free market competition, patient choice and high quality of care.

But barely 5 months later he voted for Ryan's budget, which among other considerations, defunds Medicare:

The little f!cker has a townhall in Mission on Thursday. Guess who's going to be there to ask him about this?... ;)

(He is one of the 42 whiners who signed the "Oh, please, Mr. President...make them go away!" letter.
