Sen. Coburn's book should add to the outrage that people already feel about the federal government. All of us have a stake in the health of the nation, and we need to address its ills right now, before it's too late. Everyone should read the book, and take the good Doctor's advice very seriously.

When our founding fathers wrote their views down for posterity, one of the things discussed was how to pay for wars, pay off debt, avoid credit defaults and thus keep our country in good standing. This book ignores this wisdom, instead choosing to politicize the problem and blame others. In that respect, it serves only as propaganda.

    This book is written by a man who a has planned since the night

    This book is written by a man who a has planned since the night of the Presdents swearing in to ruin him. So how much of the debt is his fault along with his cohorts in the do nothing congress! Instead of writing a book maybe he should have been working on jobs. Water, electrical lines and bridges need replaced. Invest in green energy in wind and solar, before we don't have a plant anymore!!

    Interesting perspective!

    Coburn has written a book that examines several issues with the US debt crisis. Generally I think he is correct in his evaluation & solutions. Coburn discusses how to approach our health and retirement programs without throwing the beneficiaries - current & future under the bus. He outlines possibilities about how to reform our tax code and approach the debt conundrum. A far more sane approach than most that I have heard.
