Really liked this. Jim DeMint is one of the true good guys. This person's criticism of him though, is a bullseye. YOU MUST BE WILLING TO TAKE ON ENTITLEMENTS IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THE DEBT. All the caterwauling about "it is not fair to the retiring boomers" (hey, *I* am one of those people) is irrelevant. It *IS* unjust. So freaking what? I live in a world of injustice and this is one more item. Justice is one thing. Survival is another.
I do like his comment about earmarks being the "gateway drug" to wasteful and corrupt spending.
