It's an easy connection, it's true and it goes directly to the key tea party demographic.
Let the "Government Hands off My Medicare" crowd become scared of their own Reps and start marching with torches and pitchforks on their Tea Party or "Moderate who's chicken" Congressmen, screaming at them to vote for a clean bill.
Maybe start with the "moderates" (who talk big and then retreat) and work your way down to the crazies. (It won't take long.)
Here's a script:
Hello? Congressman (Grimm? Hanna? Wolf? Reichter? . . . ) "Why are you putting my (my mom's, my nana's) social security checks in danger by threatening default?"Enough of this crap.
