Interesting point of view…

The most important (moral) issue of our time is not abortion, but the national deficit/debt. So says Tom Coburn:

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) said Congress’s deficit spending has become a moral issue surpassing abortion because it saddles future generations with massive debt before they’re born.

“The greatest moral issue of our time isn’t abortion, it’s robbing our next generation of opportunity,” Coburn told reporters at a breakfast meeting Thursday at the National Press Club. “You’re going to save a child from being aborted so they can be born into a debtor’s prison?”

The conservative Republican also criticized his own party, saying voters bounced the GOP from office for their hypocrisy. “It’s not a bad thing power changed last year,” said Coburn, who also criticized President Bush for not doing enough to curb spending.

    Sen Coburn is my hero! He is a true fiscal conservative and I love to watch him make the idiot pork pushers whine and squeal.
    By the way, I have no problem with him holding the gun control bill that people say, ultimately allowed some nut job to buy a gun and screw up a school.
    That’s B.S.! There are plenty of laws on the books currently to deal with any problems we could possibly face, except perhaps out of control spending. Doh!
    I would rather have congress focus on removing regulations and restrictions than adding more.
    Wouldn’t that be great?
    We are mostly sane, intelligent and resourceful people and we can think for ourselves and act in our own best interest.

    America! America!
