Sen. Tom Coburn: Lessons from 1994 and why it’s D-Day on the national debt

From the Washington Examiner, h/t reader Eric:

The House is taking other important steps.  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s “cut-as-you-go” approach to governing reflects reality.

House transition chair Greg Walden’s move to cut the cost of Congress by $35 million is leadership by example.

House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s pledge to bring non-defense discretionary spending to 2008 levels will build credibility and make further reforms possible.  Ryan is right that we can choose a path of prosperity over austerity, but only if we act quickly.

Finally, the majority’s pledge to vote to repeal the health care law is the first step in a long battle to repeal this fatally-flawed legislation.

On the Senate side, we’re grateful to have reinforcements in the form of new Senators and a new majority in the House that can help us drive a limited government agenda.

If the Senate wants to obstruct the House’s efforts to put us on a sustainable course that will be their choice, and they will be held accountable.
