Immoral Pork

Damn!  Nice to see this!

...Sen. Tom Coburn, R, Okla., has filed an amendment to strip from the bill the $300 million "pork-bribe" that got Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., to cast the needed 60th vote to proceed to debate on the bill.

The amendment is only three words long -- "Strike section 2006" -- but it could be hazardous to some senators' health if it ever receives a floor vote. John Hart, his spokesman, released a statement that "Dr. Coburn believes it's immoral for the Reid bill to cut Medicare benefits for seniors while financing special-interest, pork-barrel projects for vulnerable incumbents.

Who wouldathunk moral principles are still alive and well in the US Senate?
