Read from June 23 to July 06, 2012

Dr. Tom Coburn as far as I know is the only senator that is also a physician (Ran and Ron Paul are Congressmen) and his views in The Debt Bomb are worthy of attention. He is an admirable guy who has delivered over 2000 babies, and also gave back his extra cash per diem that he did not spend on his first trip as a Senator buy writing a check back to the Federal Reserve.

It may be a fair assesment that Republicans have no plan for the 2012 election except: The economy is bad, Obama didn't fix it, we can do better.

Coburn is bold enough to offer a plan and take the political fallout

1) The Problem--Careerism. Most politicians go into politics with noble plans, but soon do what they have to do to get elected.
2)He uncovered the Bridge to Nowhere in Alaska..and accepts no pork barrel projects for his own state of Oklahoma.
3)He intends to serve one term and then out..to not fall trap to Careerism
4)Check out his ideas "back in Black" a road to stop Washington from Bankrupting America..he'll cut defense spending, raise the age for SS, and cut entitlements, and cut NASA.

I give this book 5 stars..he is analytical and is rightly concerned with the out of control spending that started with the Bush Administration and continues with the Obama Administration.
