Coburn Omnibus Of More Irresponsible Spending

I was just reading an interesting column by Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media, "Senate Vote on More Money for U.N.". The column says, "Having failed to stop the irresponsible $50 billion global AIDS bill, Senate conservatives are now being given a second chance. Can they stand up to Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid and block the so-called Coburn Omnibus of more irresponsible spending? Reid jokingly named the bill after the Oklahoma Republican Senator, Tom Coburn, who has prevented dozens of excessive federal spending bills from passing the Senate. But Reid is actually titling the bill “Advancing America’s Priorities.” (Continue Reading) I wonder if our Senators will take the time to read this 398 page bill, a gift to the United Nations? If Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid's plan works and this piece of work is passed without adequate debate it will cost us no less than $11 billion. This is one more reason for us to contact our elected officials and urge them to sign on as a sponsor to the Read The Bills Act. I don't know about you but I don't feel that expecting them to read the bills they vote on and pass is asking to much of our members of congress.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
