Sen. DeMint: ‘A Balanced Budget Amendment Would Effectively Put the Democratic Party Out of Business’
(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that the Democratic Party would “effectively” be “put out of business,” if Congress were to pass a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“They can’t work with us on balancing the budget,” DeMint said. “Their whole platform is based on more promises from government and more government spending.
“A balanced budget Amendment to the Constitution would effectively put the Democratic Party out of business, because campaigns could no longer be based on all the promises of what else that government is going to do. Whether it’s partnering with businesses or redistributing wealth, it doesn’t work in a scenario where we have to stop spending.”

“In over two decades of service in the Senate, Herb Kohl has done much to help the great state of Wisconsin and the lives of its residents. While Senator Kohl and I have had our policy disagreements in the past, he has always had my respect. It has been a privilege to work with him over the years, and I wish him the best in his future endeavors. I was surprised by Senator Kohl’s announcement and want to take some time over the next few days to discuss this news with my family and supporters before making any decision about how I’m best able to serve my employers in the First Congressional District, our state and nation.”
