Way to go Senator Coburn

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) said he hopes that "the administration is not into subsidizing stupid behavior. It's one thing to help people who made a rational decision, who were spammed or defrauded. But it's another thing to reward people who thought they were getting something for nothing, and knew what they were getting into."

Blau,Blau,Blau......I got one worse than that. The ALS Registry act S.1382. ALS patients nation wide are being held hostage on Capitol Hill by Tom Coburn, the Senator from Oklahoma. Held by senate trickery called a "Hold". This legislation would authorize the establishment of an ALS Registry at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The House of Representatives passed the bill on Oct.16, 2007 by an overwhelming 411-3 vote. The Senate H.E.L.P. Committee favorably reported the Senate version of the bill on Nov. 14, 2007 and more than two-thirds of the Senate has cosponsored the bill. The ALS Registry Act is needed to build on projects underway in three test cities and is supported even the Administration. No explanation by the Senator.

First off I don't view the comments I posted as negatives. That said, every politician is a scum bag of one degree or another. I think your lucky if you can find one who agrees with you on your key issue. In this case, I can't say that I know where the guy stands on anything or if he should be hawking used cars in Pigs Knuckle Arkansas.

If what you say is true, then perhaps he should be shovelling shit in hell, because I am certain that a warm corner is waiting for him.
