This came to light in the early 90,s. Sam Donaldson, the ABC scourge of many presidents, was found to be the beneficiary of mohair subsidies. Mohair was used in the wool uniforms of WWI...but the subsidy chugged along in to the age of polyester blends. I believe he still receives them to this day.

I wonder if Coburn has made any money on insider trading like his friend Nancy “she’s a nice person” Pelosi.

“But we need to be careful not to institute a policy where it becomes accepted political ideology to simply pick the pockets of the wealthy whenever we see a dime going their way.”

That point, and something heading to that point is not what Mr. Coburn is talking about.

He's being more honest than many Conservatives by admitting that the complexity of the tax code, as well as part of the reason the rates are as high as they are, is due to the labyrinth of exceptions, exemptions, deductions, allowances and credits written into the code by two forces - Liberal/Progressive/Marxist social engineering and crony capitalist interests. Both forces are destructive to a well running market economy and are in fact attempting to micromanage the economy through the tax code, impeding our economic performance on the alter of their political interests by altering people's behavior to bend to the tax code instead of natural economic forces.
