On the verge of losing the debate on health care, Coburn decided to threaten Democratic members of the U.S. House who changed their vote from "no" to "yes." Coburn says he'll use Senate rules to punish these folks.
Coburn, apparently, thinks he's on a mission from God. News Flash: He's not.
He is grandstanding, however, trading statesmanship for pandering and hoping that the good people of Oklahoma won't notice how petty he has become.
But you can fool some of the people some of the time. As evidence, we reprint this weirdness from another Tulsa blog, one that supports Coburn's hyperbolic rhetoric:
Thus Americans are gathering in; defense of their Constitution, opposition to the targeted destruction of the finest quality healthcare system in history of mankind, and stinging rebuke of the current Marxist Administration of President Barack Hussein Obama.Wow! Someone around T-town is off their meds. (Probably can't afford them!)
As it happens, the U.S. health care system works best for people who have the means to pay for it—tough luck for poor people or anyone else who suffers from a major accident or dread disease.
