Folks – I don’t know if any of my readers live in Oklahoma but this is absurd. Please consider whatever action you can take via phone call, e-mail, fax to encourage Senator Coburn to get a clue. He is blocking S. 579 arguing that it is “politicizing disease research”. He likes to block bills, it appears to be his hobby, but if you’re reading this you or someone close to you have been touched by cancer and I personally don’t find it cute.
Thanks to the Desert Beacon blog for alerting me to the issue. You can read the details at the Desert Beacon blog
