U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn tells Stillwater-area residents America needs bold leadership

STILLWATER, Okla. — U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., told Stillwater-area residents America needs bold leadership in Washington to fix the nation’s problems.

Coburn held a town meeting Monday at Oklahoma State University’s Wes Watkins Center. He made some opening remarks and fielded questions.

People asked how to deal with immigration, the deficit, college tuition and health care. Coburn came back to one theme.

“All of our problems are fixable,” he said. “Nobody wants to talk about the real problems.”

Politicians are more concerned about politics than they are the country.

Coburn constantly returned to the deficit. He said the country has lived the last 30 years on the next 30, taking away from future generations.
