“I’m doing the job South Carolinians elected me to do, which is to review each bill carefully before it is passed, not after,” DeMint told McClatchy. “Only in Washington is it a radical idea to read a bill and know how much it costs before we agree to pass it. I’m not going to sit by quietly while big spenders try to secretly ram through bills that increase the debt and expand the size of government.”
DeMint’s aides said he’s not out to block all legislation and is focused on spending measures.
How on earth could DeMint and Pence offer commentary on the Obama budget already. Have they read the bill? Have they read the entire plan they are offering? Shouldn’t they “READ THE BILL” first?
