DeMint was taking the same line as other Republican leaders today. Both John Cornyn, the chair of the NRSC (which is responsible for getting Paul elected), and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor said they hadn't seen Paul's remarks and had no comment.

In interviews yesterday, Paul criticized both the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act because they regulate private enterprise.
