LtSaloon: Tom Coburn’s Shame

If this lunatic has any capacity for shame, that is…

“Thirteen major military and veterans groups have joined forces to try to force one senator — Republican Tom Coburn of Oklahoma — to release a hold that he has placed on a major veterans benefits bill.
Coburn has been identified by Senate aides as the lawmaker preventing consideration of S 1963, the Veterans’ Caregiver and Omnibus Health Benefits Act of 2009, by using an informal but legal practice of putting a hold on a bill.”
– Rick Maze, “Coburn Named As Senator Holding Up Vets Bill,” Marine Corps Times, Nov. 3, 2009.

Finally, sanity prevailed in spite of the embarrassing Coburn…

The U.S. Senate unanimously approved legislation Thursday to provide financial aid to caregivers of disabled veterans, ending a stand-off with Sen. Tom Coburn that drew national attention.” […]
“Coburn had objected for weeks to passing the bill using the Senate’s fast-track process, holding out for the opportunity to offer amendments.”

Chris Casteel, “U.S. Senate Approves Veterans Bill,” The Daily Oklahoman, Nov. 20, 2009.

Sen. Coburn is a C Streeter who tried to broker a deal for his C Street pal, Sen John Ensign, who was involved with an extra-marital affair with one his staffers. The C Street House is operated by 'The Family,' a shady Christo-Fascist organization headed by Doug Coe. Coe belives men like Coburn and Ensign are special people who are above the law like Adolf Htler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.

Extra-legal nut jobs like this have crossed the line into sedition. There is nothing in the Bible that sanctions this sort of behvior. This is reminiscent of some of the religio-fascist ideas of Hitler and Mussolini.

Rightardia has been saying for along time that the GOP does not really have a voting record that is supportive of veterans. Sen. Coburn's obstructionism is another example.
