This ebook consists of a summary of the ideas, viewpoints and facts presented by Tom A. Coburn in his book "The Debt Bomb, A Bold Plan to Stop Washington From Bankrupting America". This summary offers a concise overview of the entire book in less than 30 minutes reading time. However this work does not replace in any case Tom A. Coburn's book. Coburn put forward that America is facing the greatest threat, which is the unsustainable spending of the government, and he argues that unless something is done America of the suture will only be a hollow shell of its former self.
Hence, he prescribes an intense debate and some structural reforms.
