December 2, 2012 - Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" to discuss fiscal cliff negotiations between the president and House Speaker John Boehner, Senator Corker said, "Until we get to entitlements, we're really not having a serious discussion," noting Republicans have offered to raise additional revenue by limiting tax deductions without raising tax rates, but the president has yet to propose needed reforms to save Medicare and other entitlement programs, which are running out of money and threaten to bankrupt the country. He also argued for both parties to reach agreement now on a major fiscal reform plan like the one he has proposed because the options "are going to get more narrow as time goes on" and "creating another fiscal cliff down the road...lacks political courage."
