Balanced Budget Amendment Requirement Back on Table

Tom Williams/Roll Call

Sen. Tom Coburn said he remained optimistic that a crisis will be averted. Oh, well get it done. Its all just posturing, the Oklahoma Republican said.

Of course, the veteran conservative was speaking specifically about the Senate. Oh, not the House. Those guys believe what they believe, Coburn said.

A GOP Senator also warned that new economic data released Friday, which showed the economy was growing at a much slower rate than had been thought, would do nothing but embolden tea party conservatives.

Its only going to make tea party guys more convinced they are right, the Senator said.
