Great start to fiscal responsibility: Cut Spending

SEN. JIM DEMINT (R), SOUTH CAROLINA:  "I think Republicans will say no (to raising the debt ceiling), unless that raising of the debt ceiling is accompanied by some -- some dramatic spending cuts, something that would direct us toward a balanced budget in the future, Republicans will not support an increase in the debt limit. 

So there are a number of other things we need to do to demonstrate that we're -- we're serious. And one of those is to de-fund Obama Care, and, as soon as we can, hopefully, have a vote on balancing the budget."

I hope it's Rand Paul that filibusters the raising of the debt ceiling, thus shutting down government until Obama capitulates to the spending cuts! Or better yet, how about Kirk from Illinois, the Republican that took the Obama Senate seat :)
