Carney Responds To Coburn: "We Would Take That Bet"

At an afternoon press conference held by fiscal Congressional conservatives Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) bet a Porterhouse steak that President Obama would sign the Cut, Cap & Balance legislation if it reached his desk.

White House press secretary Jay Carney was informed of Coburn's comments and here is how he responded:

"I have a feeling we're going to hear this exchange on the radio. But, we would take that bet and I would refrain from heading to the Safeway to buy A1 because the President has very clearly vowed to veto a bill if such a bill were to arrive on his desk. Because it is a draconian measure that in terms of its impact on dramatic cuts on Social Security [and] Medicare would make the Ryan plan pale in comparison."
