Yesterday, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) sat down with us for a quick interview before sitting on a panel with Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) and our own Bill Beach for an event titled, “Is America Sinking into the Dependency Abyss? [1]“.

He talked with us about the growth of entitlements and the problems with the Dodd Bailout Bill, saying,

“It’s important that we fix the things that caused the financial meltdown in our country. The real frustration with this [bill] is that this is another political package with a label that says ‘financial reform’ but you open it up and it does not address the problems that caused the financial problem.”
