Politico has a piece out that is the predictable type of hyperbole that unnamed "top officials" generally leak to the gullible media in order to float an idea to see exactly how party supporters would react to it. It happens during every negotiation process, yet the mainstream media always falls for it, as do many party supporters.
The "framework" trial balloon is unacceptable and public statements from both Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell, confirm that, but during the type of backroom negotiating going on between Republicans, Democrats and Obama over the fiscal cliff, it is always important that supporters make their voices heard, draw their lines in the sand, and let those elected by their constituents know the ramifications of betraying those that put them in office.
The ramification for betrayal is simple, the 2014 election, where every single House seat is on the ballot. Conservatives handed control of the the House of Representatives back to the GOP in November of 2012 and those same voters can take it away from them in 2014.
This needs to be made clear to every single House Republican.
