Dueling Visions of the Fiscal Future of America

In their respective weekly addresses, President Obama and the Republican Party summarized their opposing views on how to tackle the federal budget crisis. Watch both videos below.

First, the address of President Obama.

Second, the Republican address, being given by Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK).

It's worth mentioning that, despite their vast political differences, President Obama and Senator Coburn are close personal friends. There is no need for our political differences to manifest themselves in the form of personal bitterness. The better we are able to disagree without being disagreeable, the more effectively we will be able to meet the challenges facing our country.
