    Default GOP senator blocks veterans' suicide prevention bill



    Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) blocked the Senate from passing a veterans’ suicide prevention bill.

    “I’m going to be objecting to this bill because it actually throws money away,” Coburn said.

    He isn't called Dr. No for nuthin,'. I would like to know what else is in that bill. The fact that this already exists is suspicious to me. Harry Reid and Blumenthal are behind it, that's all you need to know.

    Yeah, I've learned the hard way that you can't judge a bill by its title. They throw so much additional crap on these bills, that a person can easily be voting against something else included in the bill, and not the main purpose of the bill proper.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I guarantee that if that measure was presented as a stand alone bill it would pass easily, and most likely by a unanimous vote. This tactic of lumping something good with something terrible in order to make someone look bad is a popular political tool. That's why during elections you will hear ads about how Sen. ________ voted to cut funding for school lunch programs, voted against tougher punishments for child molesters, and voted against veterans benefits. Despite what anyone might think about politicians, none of them are that inherently evil. There's probably a legitimate reason for those votes.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
