Tom Coburn, Senator from Oklahoma, has decided to challenge Grover Norquist‘s dictation to the GOP insisting on a no tax increase pledge. It’s about time that someone in the GOP stood up to Norquist who has never been elected to an office in Washington, DC. Coburn has pledged not to run for re-election in 2016 so he feels free to defy TEA Party and big money donor wrath. I wish that more members of Congress would stand up for what is right. The interests of the country are more important than individual careers.
