Former Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn appeared on The Mark Levin Show recently to discuss the impending debt crisis and what Americans can do to stop it.
Here are some highlights:
Mark Levin: "I don't see any way out of this, I don't care how many Republicans we elect. Do you?"
Senator Coburn: "You're never going to get 67 Republicans that have the backbone...to make the hard choices. The same in the House. They're not going to [deal with the waste] until we force them to do it."
Levin: "This is bleak, but there is a way out. The Framers gave us a way out and it is Article V and it is Convention of States."
Coburn: "What you saw [in the latest budget deal] was short term facilitation of political goals, not long-term answers for the very serious problems that plague our country."
Coburn: "We can either take back the freedom that was promised us, and do that in a lawful way, or we can just give up, go hide in a hole, and say, 'Children, I'm sorry, but we're the first generation that's totally going to undermine your future.'"
