Wednesday event to reflect on Coburn's legacy, why the national debt matters

In this age of absolutely wild government spending, the wisdom of voices like that of the late Dr. Tom Coburn are greatly missed. While he may have been a voice crying in the wilderness of Washington, rejected and dismissed by both sides of the aisle, there are some who have taken up his mantle in seeking to promote fiscal sanity as we approach catastrophic levels of national debt.

The Millennial Debt Foundation is hosting a discussion this coming Wednesday, in downtown Oklahoma City, about the legacy of Dr. Coburn, the fiscal future of the country and why the national debt matters. Featured speakers will include elected officials such as U.S. Sen. James Lankford, who has in his own way carried forward Dr. Coburn's annual "Wastebook" project, highlighting some of the monstrous wastes of taxpayer funds by the federal government.
