Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is a general practicioner and is recognized as the conscience of the U.S. Senate.
These remarks are from a recent speech he made.
"We are going in exactly the wrong direction. We ought to be standing on the principles that made this country great. There ought to be a review of every program in the Federal Government that is not effective, that is not efficient, that is wasteful or fraudulent, and we ought to get rid of it right now. We ought to say, you're gone, to be able to pay for a real stimulus plan that might, in fact, have some impact.
