Coburn on Fiscal Troubles: ‘There’s a Power Greater’ Than Republicans & Democrats: ‘Math’

by Andrew Johnson

On Morning Joe today, Oklahoma senator Tom Coburn warned the MSNBC panel about the lack of progress on addressing entitlement reform. “The Medicare Part A trust fund will be out of money in five years. Social Security disability will be out of money in 18 months,” Coburn said. “It doesn’t matter what mode [Obama's] in. It doesn’t matter what mode the Republicans are in. There’s a power greater than both of them: it’s called math.”
