Only 7% of Americans approve of the job that Congress is doing these days. And for good reason. The country is in a mess because of their ridiculous spending habits and only catering to personal careers and special interest groups.
But I just finished watching this segment on 60 Minutes about Tom Coburn, the retiring senator from Oklahoma…and I was deeply impressed. I recommend that you watch the entire 12 minutes.
I confess that I have not paid much attention to him in the past, having dismissed anyone who is a member of this failing institution. He is a conservative senator, but also close friends with President Obama. Isn’t that an interesting enigma?
My thought is this – if he is ANYTHING close to what I saw in that report, the country is losing a great man in the senate. I hope he beats the cancer and has a chance to continue the fight to make a difference.
Today’s challenge – Let’s look closer to find greatness in this country. It’s too early to throw the towel in defeat.
Thanks for listening.
