Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., is talking tough on tackling the nation’s Tom Coburn, Gang of Six, National Debtexploding debt problem, Politico reports.

Coburn, one of the “Gang of Six” senators negotiating a bipartisan debt-reduction plan, said on “Fox News Sunday” that lawmakers serious about the debt problem need to put their congressional careers on the line to get this done.

“What the country needs to hear from the leaders in Washington is that we understand how big this problem is and that we’re willing to lose elections to do what’s best for the country and that’s what’s not happening now.”
