Republican Sen. Jim DeMint is threatening to block a vote in
Congress on raising the U.S. debt ceiling unless he wins a
balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution, according
to Fox News. The filibuster threat comes a day after news that
GOP leaders had offered private assurances to the White
House that they ultimately would vote to raise the $14.3
trillion ceiling, regardless of whether a deal is reached on
long-term spending cuts.

$14 trillion debt until Congress passes the balanced-budget
 amendment,” the South Carolina conservative said. He
first made the remarks to McClatchy, which his office
confirmed to Fox News.
