I am encouraged that Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., have joined forces to bring forth legislation to reduce the federal deficit. It is marvelous that 11 senators have supported the effort.
I am amazed that Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., has written a letter to the Pentagon telling the Defense Department to get their finances in order. He has been a leader against legislation for health care reform.
It is very important that the war and domestic economy become balanced. Unless they are, the deficit will soar.
