GOP Sen. Jim DeMint: Boehner's 'fiscal cliff' proposal 'will destroy American jobs'

South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint just gave Democrats a shiny new talking point.

The tea party-backed senator on Tuesday slammed House Republican leaders for the fiscal cliff proposal they offered earlier this week.

"Speaker (John) Boehner's $800 billion tax hike will destroy American jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more, while not reducing our $16 trillion debt by a single penny," DeMint said in a statement.

2. We only need 26 Republican votes in the House to legislate our ways out of this senseless

stalemate. Looks like Demint is one, 25 to go.
