Sen. DeMint: Country going bankrupt – “folks up here don’t get it”

“The voters out there just need to look at everyone regardless of party and send us some reinforcements up here. I think they will. I think America will be paying attention because I think by the time we get to November people are going to realize how much trouble we’re in. … We just need to wake up because I really do think this could be our last chance to turn things around.” DeMint

Senator Jim DeMint discusses earmarks, term limits, and corporate welfare on CNBC’s Kudlow Report. The Democrat majority in the senate continues to block efforts to eliminate corporate welfare in the energy industry and a ban on earmarks.

“I don’t think we’re going to get it done this year with this president. While he talks about it, we’ve never gotten a Democrat to support  any form of tax reform that I’m aware of. They just like to complain about it.” -DeMint

“So as I get this picture, we are in a heap of fiscal trouble, on the edge of bankruptcy, the economy is badly performing, the jobless rate is too high and what i’m hearing is NOTHING. Nothing. No Simpson-Bowles, no corporate tax reform, no end to corporate welfare, no end to corporate cronyism, no end to earmarks. This is why you see these polls running against congress as high as those polls are. I just don’t understand it.” – Larry Kudlow
