OK how can I out this delicately? Tom Coburn, Republican from Oklahoma is a dick. Nope that really doesn't do him justice, he is a huge dick! That's better.
Coburn, in a fit not unlike a petulant child is doing everything he can to block health benefits for the first responders to 9-11. I know you won't believe it so here is a video of his dickishness. His claim that the bill hasn't gone through the process is a lie. Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions committee did in fact hold a hearing on the bill in June — and Coburn should know as he sits on that committee.
