Tom Coburn Sets Bar High
We Need More Politicians Like Tom Coburn
Too bad Oklahoma Senators, and all Senators as a matter of fact, do not measure up to the high standards set by Senator Tom Coburn. He could have very easily been re-elected by chose instead to keep his promise. When elected, Senator Tom Coburn made a promise to his constituents to leave Washington after 3 terms. We need more politicians like Tom Coburn. Why aren’t more of our elected representatives following his example? Why do these folks change after they experience the sweet taste of politics?
Money and Power Easily Corrupt
We all know why we end up with career politicians who ignore the Constitution, pursue their own agenda vs doing what’s right for the country and justify corruption…the temptation of money and power is too difficult to resist.
Perfect Example of Corruption
It’s the corruption of money and power when a Senator like Tom Coburn gets blasted by his fellow members of Congress and the media for doing the right thing in blocking the Veterans Suicide Prevention bill. Coburn stopped the bill because it is redundant, it duplicates programs already in place therefore a waste of taxpayers money. Coburn does not believe the bill would change a thing, it would just be window dressing to make everyone feel good. But the left wingers who have more power feel otherwise so they get to take their shots at him and mislead the American people via the media. Tom Coburn wants to do the right thing but there is something in it for the liberal left politicians so the right thing gets pushed aside.
Why Do We Re-elect?
It’s always so puzzling as to why American voters continue to re-elect politicians who are not what they appear to be. We all know these politicians play smoke and mirror games all the time and yet every election we re-elect them…why? Americans finally had enough and fired the liars and cheats in the last mid-terms but look how that’s working out. We just can’t win. We need more Tom Coburn type of representation.
