Coburn: Courage To Lose Elections Needed

Senator Tom Coburn, one of the the "Gang of Six" senators negotiating a bipartisan debt-cutting plan, said Sunday that lawmakers serious about tackling the debt problem need to be willing to sacrifice their posts in Congress in order to do it.

"What the country needs to hear from the leaders in Washington is that we understand how big this problem is and that we’re wiling to lose elections to do what’s best for the country and that’s what’s not happening now," Coburn said on Fox News Sunday.
