to 9-11 Heroes: Drop Dead
Challenges Inhofe for "Biggest Asshole'
"Inhofe ain't got shit on me
it comes to being a major douche."
Amid mounting pressure from
Democrats and a growing handful of Republicans

He tells Politico that he "wouldn't allow the bill to move quickly" due
with parts of the bill and the process Democrats are employing" to pass
Coburn defended his position in a Tuesday morning interview on Fox
arguing that "this is a bill that's been drawn up and forced through
the end of the year on a basis to solve a problem that we didn't have
solve and we didn't get done."
Coburn also argued that the bill, entitled the Zadroga 9/11 Health and
