Once again I am posting video from Senator Coburn, this time from the Senate floor. I have resisted posting this in the interest of variety but the truth is that what Dr. Coburn is alerting us to is simply too important not to post. We are currently adding 1.5 trillion dollars a year to our national debt. We borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend. Most experts predict an increase in interest rates in the near term. We would all like to think that we can continue to kick this can down the road, and most of our elected leaders in Washington seem to content to do just that. Even most of the so-called fiscal conservatives our only proposing meager cuts. While most of the congressman on either side of the aisle tow their party’s line, Senator Coburn’s message has been increasingly presidential. Dire circumstances in history have required just this sort of selfless leadership and we may as a nation be facing our biggest challenge yet.Vodpod videos no longer available.
