    Asked whether he'd support the legislation, and oppose a filibuster to it, DeMint answered, simply, "no" to both questions. "It raises taxes, it raises the death tax. I don't think we needed to negotiate that aspect of this thing away," DeMint said. "I don't think we need to extend unemployment any further without paying for it, and without making some modifications such as turning it into a loan at some point." DeMint, who's holding out for a permanent extension of the Bush tax cuts, wouldn't say how much support he has, but hinted it could be substantial: "I think there's going to be a lot of fallout on the Republican side, and I suspect even on the Democrat side," he said.
