The Party of (Hell) No

In Senate on December 19, 2009 at 6:16 am

Senator Tom Coburn sets the record straight. Sometimes “no” is not an obstruction to progress, it is a defense of liberty. It’s amazing the clarity possible when one steps back from the barrage of rhetoric from the left and re-engages with reason.

Thanks to Michelle Malkin for the heads-up.

On the Senate floor a few minutes ago, GOP Sen. Tom Coburn gave a rousing defense of the “Party of No.”

“We’re accused of being the party of no,” he said. But “no is a wonderful word. When your child is misbehaving, you say no. When someone’s stealing liberty, you say no…Saying no at the right time saves lives. Saying no at the right time saves money…Saying no at the right time saves liberty.”
