    Coburn just said tonight that people should pray that one of these senators for the bill shouldn't "make it" to the health care vote.

    Just a few minutes later, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) interrupted while Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) was speaking to issue a challenge to Coburn:
    I have been trying to reach Sen. Coburn. … This statement troubles me, and I’m trying to reach him come back to the floor and explain exactly what he meant about a senator being unable to make the vote tonight. … I’m reaching out to Sen. Coburn. I’ll be on the floor for the next 45 minutes, and I hope that he will join me there.


    I'm with Durbin on this

    This doesn't surprise me though. Coburn is full of comments like this. In fact, more and more of them are now a days.

    Two feet of snow makes it rough for folks to get around, even a day after it fell. Sheesh, such drama. :rolleyes:

    IDK, Si... ever since Obama started talking about reform, the Republicans have been talking about killing people- lots of talk about Hitler and committing genocide. Combined with all the talk of revolution in the early months, and I'm kinda suspicious.

    I know Coburn; he meant the snow and/or the holiday. The other inference is not his style at all.

    There are a lot of Christians who would take issue with that stance.

    "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God."
    Romans 13:1
