Wait. There's someone in the senate tackling government waste? Who knew?
I mean, with $17+ T in debt and another trillion just passed, the only thing I can think is that he's been working his butt off to MAXIMIZE waste. Either that, or he's been absolutely ineffective and it makes no difference who replaces him.
He was exposing waste, to be honest, but on the other hand, when not doing that, he was sticking Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the back. Since he didn’t actually STOP any of the waste, and Ted Cruz was making every effort to do so, I have to wonder.
Coburn started out like Helms but winds up pretty much like either of the McCs. I wish him speedy recovery.
I cant see anyone but a conservative getting that seat and seeing that Oklahoma was the only state that not a single county went for the current occupier no demorat stands a chance.
