Nice interview with Senator Tom Coburn, one of two doctors in Congress, but he is the only medical doctor that continues to practice.  Imagine going to see you doctor the Congressman!  Robert Scoble in his Washington series discussed blogging, Healthcare and how Congress operates, good topics.  The Senator states that Washington is operating out of the 50’s and that the low rankings of late are deserved. 

He also believes just like Congressman Culberson that we need TRANSPARENCY in Congress for the constituents.  His office regularly monitors blogging sites and uses sites as such to get in contact versus running his own blog.  He likes bloggers! 

He states we are spending enough on healthcare, but is the money going toward helping people get well, that’s the problem!  No we are not.  He likes the technology and supports the R and D that comes along with it, and make R and D tax credits permanent.  He feels the government should step out of the way in some instances.  He fully agrees with putting the government on the net and his message to technology is to keep on doing what it’s doing.  BD 

"Tech is how we get our freedom back," Senator Tom Coburn says. He wants a totally transparent government thanks to technology. We have a wide-ranging conversation about a number of topics, but he focused in on why he thinks bloggers are changing how politicians talk to their constituency.”

  6. yet he still continues to engage in his dedicated , compassionate vocation as a Family Medical Specialist as well as delivering Babies and providing much needed Obstetrical medical care to patients in his home district -FOR FREE...that enables him to remain INDEPENDANT from the 99 other Senators and their 'BACKROOM DEAL-MAKING OR ARM-TWISTING' - CAN'T Y'ALL SEE...ALL Y'ALL- THAT THIS MAKES HIM THE SINGULARLY EFFECTIVE ADVOCATE FOR ALL OF US IN THIS NATION..THE SOLITARY VOICE OF REASON ... THE Dr. 'TRUTH'of CAPITOL HILL.He never voted for earmarks AND JUST LIKE THE 'Surge' is really the McCAIN SURGE, so too EARMARKS ARE THE COBURN-'NO EARMARKS, NO PORK-BARREL SPENDING'

  8. THEY continue to vote in favor of EARMARKS many of which Dr. 'NO' COBURN IS blocking on highly principled grounds , because they represent duplicated 'overlapping wasteful government spending". He is the last remaining SANTA CLAUS to ALL FUTURE GENERATIONS OF AMERICANS who face the grim prospect OF a bankrupt NATION , and fallen EMPIRE -which unlike the ROMAN EMPIRE will face a much earlier demise.SO Fellow brethren, Patriots , countrymen - DON'T ROB YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN of their Nation and ENDEAVOR TO ENSURE the very survival of this soverign NATION BY putting enough REINDEER on Santa Coburn's Sleigh AND WHISPER IN 'RUDOLPH'S EAR -NO EARMARKS' so that he may ride that sleigh of fiscal viability WITH HIS cheery red nose into the next century for our kids and grandchildren...with our deeply ETHICAL AMERICAN...Dr. TOM ALLEN COBURN - CALLING OUT 'NO,NO,NO..OOO.We MUST ALL AWAKEN OUT OF COMPLACENCY and call and write your legislators and support 'NO EARMARKS', ALSO america's best healthcare plan -Dr. Coburn's Senate BILL S1019.

  9. It is quite conceivable that as OIL AND GAS prices dominates airwaves IN May-JULY , 'Healthcare' WILL RISE TO NUMBER one IN THE MEDIA in Sept.-Nov. 2008. Also with markets stabilizing, Healthcare may be the one and only last hope for the fragmebted DEM'S to 'squeak out a close win, riding on the coat-tails of a 'Kennedy sympathy card'
