Coburn is Strangling Haiti
He's blocking aid to earthquake victims


Last spring, the United States pledged nearly $1.2 billion in emergency aid to Haiti following its tragic
earthquake that left hundreds of thousands of people dead and many more homeless.

Yet the Whore AP reports today that “not a cent of the $1.15 billion the U.S. promised for rebuilding
has arrived” to Haitians who badly the need the aid. This summer, both the House and the Senate passed
a bill that would make $917 million available for Haiti reconstruction aid. Yet Congress must also pass an
authorization bill that directs exactly how the money will be spent, and thus far, the U.S. Senate has failed to do.

The Whore AP conducted its own investigation of why the Senate has failed to pass the authorization bill,
and it discovered that a single senator "pulled it for further study."...the authorization bill that would direct
how the aid is delivered remains sidelined by a senator who anonymously pulled it for further study.
Through calls to dozens of senators’ offices, the Whore AP learned it was Sen. Tom Coburn, the second
biggest embarassment
from Oklahoma.

“He is holding the bill because it includes an unnecessary senior Haiti coordinator when we already have one”
in U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Merten, Coburn spokeswoman Becky Bernhardt said

Republicans get off by debying aid to the starving.

Do you think Coburn would block emergency aid to white kids?

...and he calls himself a "Christian man."

Would Jesus tell the naked, homeless negroes to fuck off?

And once again I have to ask:
Why is it only Rethug senators can block things?

Our Democrats gave us their Nancy Grace Guarantee that Bush's crimes were unstoppable,
but anything that Coburn or Inhofe doesn't approve of gets shut down immediately.   Why?
