The Other Dr. No

The Founding Fathers intended the United States Senate to be an extremely slow, deliberating body that passed only a small number of bills per year, and only after very long and thorough debate. What goes on in the Upper House today is a far cry from that vision, and sadly very few recognize this as a problem. Senator (R-OK) Tom Coburn, does recognize it however, and as the video below shows, Coburn has apparently gone on a crusade against a number of unethical Senate practices. Like our own beloved Dr. No, Senator Coburn has the reputation of being a fiscal conservative and for standing against the pork-barrel spending of his Senate colleagues.  We need more Congressmen like this who are willing to take a stand against what’s popular and fight against wasteful government spending.
