Coburn’s ‘Clinic’



Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn was on PBS’ NOW.

He says the first thing anyone in need of medical help should do is go to his office. Since in Oklahome we can’t go to his DC office, I guess we can go to one of his state offices or his medical office. Start lining up at any of his offices and if you live near DC feel free to go to his DC office for medical help.

He says they are willing to help anyone find affordable health care.

He can teach anyone in an hour to take care of a feeding tube. How long would it take him to teach someone how to make their own chemo facility in their own home and operate it correctly?

Maybe Tom can just leave DC and come home and open his own nursing school.

He says he has no idea what kind of plan we need – he just knows he hates anything run by the government because some friends of his won’t be making a fortune off the suffering.

He says the GOP should have done something, but he was there in the beginning and seems to have forgotten that since he has been there he has done zilch with regards to health care.

He doesn’t even care for Medicare or the VA, I guess. He wants all those who have no insurance to take the time from several minimum wage jobs to shop around for things like cheap MRIs.

  1. Survival of the fittest(or wealthiest) is all the Republicans want. Explotation of the workforce for their benefit is all Coburn and his cronies want. No one should expect anything different from the Republicans,especially in Oklahoma, where they will soon see our education and healthcare system only work for the privilaged class.
