Few public figures are as quick to embrace their unflattering monikers as Sen. Tom “Dr. No” Coburn (R-Okla.).
“We’re accused of being ‘The Party of No,’” Coburn said on the chamber floor this afternoon. “I want to tell my colleagues and the American public that ‘no’ is a wonderful word.”
When your child is misbehaving, you say no. When your adolescent child is making bad judgments, you say no. When someone is stealing something from somebody else — i.e., liberty — you say no. When you’re stealing the future, in terms of opportunity, we should say no. When you’re creating a government-centric health care system, rather than a patient-centered health care system, no is a great word.
At the moment, the Republicans are saying‘no’ to funding the troops in the midst of two wars.
