So much for the Tea Party?

Well, since the Obama-noids have been thoroughly disappointed in "Hope-N-Change", maybe it's time for another group to begin the cycle.

A tea party candidate who is now among North Carolina's newest members of Congress said Friday that she may vote to raise the nation's debt so long as lawmakers can begin making at least some substantial budget cuts.

Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers said in an interview that she doesn't want to raise the debt ceiling. But she acknowledged that Congress might need to approve the increase in how much the government can borrow to ensure seniors and others don't lose the benefits they need.

You know sweetheart, those are some of the programs that need pruned the most. You come up for election in 2012; I hope the folks that voted for you make sure you get the message that you shouldn't settle into your new office too far.
