Dr. Coburn's Statement on Fiscal Cliff Vote

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK) released the following statement today:

"While this bill is far from perfect, it does prevent massive tax increases while making tax cuts permanent for 99 percent of Americans. Congress and the president, however, have a lot of work to do to address our long-term spending problem. Our debt -- which is 120 percent of our economy if you count federal, state and local debt -- is still the greatest threat to our national security. We will never address that threat until Congress and the president acknowledge that the only way to save entitlement programs is to change them."
