Per Hugh Hewitt:

Senator JimDeMint just announced on my program that he will oppose the deal as well as a vote for cloture on the deal.  He is reluctant to criticize GOP Senate leadership, but believes the deal at a minimum has to be paid for, and that we need "a permanent economy" not a temporary one as well as permanent tax cuts, not temporary tax cuts.

Senator DeMint also expressed disappointment with the House GOP's elevation of Hal Rodgers and Spencer Bachus to key committee chairmanships, noting that the revolution of 1994 failed in part when the old guard took control of committees despite the huge freshman class.

Check Hugh's site later tonight for a transcript of the exchange.
