Before a crowd of 150 in his home state, Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn (R) held a town hall meeting and addressed the current Presidential race, the handling of U.S. finances, and the "super committee's" upcoming task. He also took questions from the audience.
During the town hall, Coburn outlined a number of issues that he believes require immediate attention, including the wealthy paying more for the country to have confidence in the economy along with the deal approved by Congress and Pres. Obama to cut the nation’s deficit while also raising the debt ceiling.
The Senator later repeated a campaign pledge that he would not run for a third Senate term in 2016.
