    Senator Coburn on Defense Department Budget Cuts - C-SPAN Video Library

    Another c-span video. 16 minutes. This guy really knows his numbers and understands the material. I would love to see his ideas included in budget talks.

    on the fiscal cliff:
    "In the long term we are going to fix the problem, because people are going to stop lending us money."

    Panetta orders defense cuts before Congress does
    January 10th, 2013 - U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has ordered the military to begin implementing cost-cutting measures aimed at mitigating the risk of significant budget cuts should Congress fail to reach a deal in coming months to avert or soften them.

    Obama will ignore Coburn's suggestion. Obama wants our military gutted so his masters in China can become the Alpha.
