We Need 49 More Senators…

Like Tom Coburn

Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) — It’s the legislative equivalent of rush hour on Capitol Hill and Senator Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, is threatening to throw himself into traffic.
The freshman lawmaker has waged a war on spending by blocking more than 90 bills this year. Now, as his colleagues rush to finish the congressional session before Christmas, Coburn is threatening to use his power to say “no” to try to slow a frenzy of lawmaking, including such items as a measure to ease the subprime lending crisis.
…“The last thing we ought to be doing at the end of the session is passing a bill without vetting it, without debating it, without talking about the problems,” Coburn said. “I am happy to be here for Christmas.”

Damn straight, Senator.
