Pork-Whacking!! Go, Tom, Go!!

Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn is on the floor of the Senate right now introducing a slew of amendments that would slice away many wasteful projects in the recent Transportation bill.

Club For Growth is blogging his speech.

This is major, folks. And it's causing a huge commotion in D.C. as it is attracting bipartisan support on one side and strong opposition on the other. Coburn's most famous target is the Alaskan "Bridge To Nowhere" but there are many others. Passage of even one of these amendments sets precedent that makes no pet project safe on Capitol Hill.

Stay tuned...

UPDATE: 2:35pm
WA Sen. Patty Murray threatens Senators who vote for the Coburn Amendment. Dum...Dum...DUMMMMMMM!
