What To Do About The National Debt
Posted by Warren Peterson on September 12, 2012
Dr. Tom Coburn, M.D. is a U.S. Senator from Oklahoma. If one accepts the Wikipedia writing about him, people will have opposing opinions concerning some of his views, especially on such hot button issues like abortion, but on the subject of the debt crisis, every citizen should listen to him, he’s right on target. The Senator has written a book, “The Debt Bomb: A Bold Plan to Stop Washington from Bankrupting America.” It lays out a path forward on which both liberals and conservatives could tread given the right leadership. That is leadership more devoted to solving problems than getting reelected, leadership that tells the truth, leadership with real world experience, courageous leadership.
Take about 45 minutes, watch and listen as Senator Coburn gives a speech to the Ripon Society about the debt. Shown on C-Span2, the video lasts about 45 minutes including introductions and questions from the floor.
