Email from OK Senator Coburn (Opens in a new window)
Well, after several weeks, I got an answer from OK Senator Tom Coburn about the bailout bill. Jim Inhofe, who is the Republican incumbent for the senate has a political ad saying that he voted against the bill (of course the ad is attacking the guy running against him, but that’s another matter entirely).
I found it interesting that Senator Coburn stated why he voted for the bill, and he says that we should be pointing fingers at Congress for the issues that have lead up to the need for the bailout. I thought the email was a good read and others might like to see what a Republican senator thought about the bailout. Granted, some of what he said seems to be regular political rhetoric, but the rest is interesting.
