45 Republican Senators lost their right yesterday to ever complain about the deficit again.

If you can't raise revenues and your pals in the House propose a budget with a $1.3 trillion deficit in year one, you are a proponent of deficit spending.

“Careerism — the philosophy of governing to win the next election above all else — is the root of almost all that ails Washington,”

Wow, someone telling the truth! If both the Republicans and the Democrats thought more about fixing our nation and less about getting re-elected, America would not be in the state we now find ourselves. Term limits would eliminate this problem and diffuse the power of corporate lobbyists. And people like Grover Norquist would be seen for the useless pieces of crap that they are.

Sounds like a 12 year term limit would solve a lot of problems. 2 times as Senator, 6x as congressman, or 3x as President.

Which is exactly why we need an Article V Convention to propose Amendments.

I agree except for congressmen. Two years is not enough time. It should be a four year term. And no one should be allowed to have three consecutive terms. Twelve consecutive years in office is a career. Forcing a break in service would keep undue influence somewhat constrained and would allow voters to decide if a candidates earlier performance earned a new term in office.

Politicians love to portray themselves as "not like the rest", thier better and heres why in my new book. But Coburn is like the rest whether he admits it or not, they all are or become that way. But ya' gotta love his attack on the hated Grover Norquist, a lobbyist who represents what truely, deeply stinks about Washington and all the game players there. Could this book be the beginning of the end of Norquist's death grip on the Republicans? I hope so but I doubt it.

"Could this book be the beginning of the end of Norquist's death grip on the Republicans?"

Not a chance, just part of managing 'the brand' so he appears to be a different kind of Republican. But he still voted against the Buffett Rule didn't he?
The problem hasn't been on both sides, and there isn't some false equivalence. We are seeing the results of 30 years of Republican economic policy, social policy, tax policy, and defense policy. The scraps thrown to social programs once in a while are a drop in the bucket compared to that and are still constantly demonized by the right to distract from the problems they created.

WAY TO SELL BOOK SENATOR. You were right their all the way. You have no clean hands. Your hands are as dirty as former congressman John Ensign. Your pal, when he was sleeping around with his best friend and employee's wife. You are no better . You have fleas also.

YOU LIE !!!! All you rightwingnuts LIE and you CHEAT !!!! That is how Bush got appointed by the Subprime Court in 2001 and that is how your TeaPotty got the majority in 2010 !!!!!
This country would be much better off with a Democratic majority and we would have had a better outcome than with a DO NOTHING PARTY OF NO HELL NO LOSERS like the rightwing/TeaPotty manure !!!!

I know, I am angry and so much has been put off and delayed that I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel as long as the rightwing has the majority.

I don't see Coburn trying to cut any spending or raise any revenue.

He's just trying to sell books. He's worse than those that he criticizes.

Then your ignorance is out for the world to see. Senator Coburn has come out with plans doing both of those.

there is plans and there is doing something. did he vote yes or no last night. did he vote yes or no to cut oil subs. we need action, we know what happened, who did it. now we need people to fix it. enough of the blame, dems are pushing for tax fairness while republicans block everything. last night they told the country, we don't care what you want, we only care what the rich wants. 72% support buffet rule, one of the highest majority to support a common sense law.

I am amazed with how much of what he says I agree with. The simple solution would be a constitutional amendment - term limits - say 12 years - and no switching from one house of Congress to the other to avoid the limitation. Of course there is no hope of such a bill ever getting out of Congress to go to the States.

What our lawmakers forget, for they think themselves irreplaceable, is that our cemetaries are full of irreplaceable people.

I bet you voted against the Buffet Rule, didn't you Mr. Coburn? Yeah, cuz having the money to pay the debts isn't important to the GOP. They just want to burden the poor and middle class and give more to the rich. Raise taxes you buffoons! It's not only a spending problem, it's more of a "we are unwilling to collect the money" problem (although, cutting the defense budge by say 65% would go a long way to helping with the debt as well).
