Senator Warns White House Will 'Create Crisis' and 'Panic' to Push Stimulus

South Carolina’s junior Republican senator, Jim DeMint said yesterday at the Heritage Foundaton that the Obama administration will “create crisis and widespread panic” just like the Bush Administration to get Congress to act expeditiously.

“I’ve been around long enough to know whenever someone tells me I have to make a decision right now, my response is no,” DeMint said. “That clears it up right away and I think more and more the Bush administration and now this administration knows that they’re not going to get a quick reaction out of Congress unless they create crisis and widespread panic. And that’s going to be their M.O. to get Congress to act.”

DeMint said some Republicans now regret they voted for the TARP package.

DeMint criticized the mainstream media for not conveying the message that some congressional Republicans are trying to spread about this package –that it’s filled with big-government wasteful spending projects that will do little to “stimulate” the economy.

"It’s like they’re in a different reality. They’re talking about a bill, that when you look at it, there’s no resemblance to what they’re talking about." DeMint said.
