Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) urged people not to give Congress a pass on working out a solution to the upcoming fiscal cliff in an interview with co-hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell that aired live today, Nov. 26, 2012, on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM – 9:00 AM). Check out the interview in full below!

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

ROSE: Are you prepared, as others are doing, to sort of say I'm going to forgo the pledge because it is outdated and the country's problems are too big?

CORKER: Well, I'm not obligated on the pledge. I made Tennesseans aware, I was just elected, that the only thing I'm honoring is the oath that I take when I serve, when I'm sworn in this January. So look, I've laid out a bill, Charlie, that's 242 pages long; in other words, it's not long. It's got $1 trillion in revenues, obviously it has real entitlement reform, which is the other side of this equation, but no Congress in history is more prepared to make these decisions. We've had two dry runs. We've litigated this; we've gone through every single score of every single decision that would have to be made. The last thing we need to do right now is kick the can down the road or create some process for next year.
