DeMint warns: "I am just going to have to create pain"

In a new interview with evangelical World Magazine, SC Sen. Jim DeMint has a few noteworthy things to say.

1. On his role in the Senate.

"I am not going to be able to persuade my colleagues to do the right things, so I am just going to have to create pain."

2. On the intersection of religion and government.

"Dependency on government reduces dependency on God."

World also notes that in his new book, Saving Freedom, DeMint calls Barack Obama a "master of victimology".
