Coburn Says 90% of Senate Should be Fired

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) rips his colleagues in a new book out today, The Debt Bomb, saying the U.S. Senate is "heavily sedated."

ABC News has excerpts: "Congress today is a stagnant pond that needs to be drained and refilled with a steady stream of new public servants. I'm a fan of the Jack Welch principle in reverse for Congress ... fire 90 percent of members every election and only keep the 10 percent who were productive."
