WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) is expected to release his fiscal plan detailing a $1 trillion net tax increase.  Below are the top five “Let’s Hike Taxes” quotations from Coburn:

“Why will I take on those that are against tax increases for Republicans?  Because it’s the right thing to do to save our country.”

-Tom Coburn, 29 May 2011, on C-SPAN’s Newsmaker program [Video Link]

“I’ve been just as vocal supporting revenue increases after I left the commission as I was before.

              -Tom Coburn, 29 May 2011, on C-SPAN’s Newsmaker program [Video Link]

              "Do I believe we have to raise taxes to be able to get a deal to cut spending?  Yeah."

-Tom Coburn, 9 June 2011, on MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan Show [Video Link]

“You know, the reason I'll stand up as a conservative Republican, one of the biggest deficit hawks in Congress, and say ‘I'll negotiate on taxes’ -- because our country’s in trouble.”

 -Tom Coburn, 14 June 2011, on the Early Show, CBS News [Video Link]

“Everybody knows there is gonna have to be a compromise on some sort of revenue increase as we make the major cuts.  That’s just fact.”

 -Tom Coburn, 14 June 2011, on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell [Video Link]
