Applaud the Coburn Amendment Yeas
For those that missed it, the Coburn Amendment was a bill last week introduced by Senator Coburn to undo one particular huge pork project, the Bridge to Nowhere, so that the money could be used in Katrina relief instead. It failed 82-15.
Here are the brave (in some cases, at least) 15 who voted against powerful Senator Ted Steven's pork project.
Allard (R-CO)Allen (R-VA)Bayh (D-IN)Burr (R-NC)Coburn (R-OK)Conrad (D-ND)DeMint (R-SC)DeWine (R-OH)Feingold (D-WI)Graham (R-SC)Kyl (R-AZ)Landrieu (D-LA)Sessions (R-AL)Sununu (R-NH)Vitter (R-LA)
Here is short column discussing it all.
Ask why you didn't see more Republican names on this list.
Then tell me why I should send a Republican back to Congress who wasn't on the list.
