Tom Coburn Blocking Veterans Insurance

I've heard all the outrage -- and it's been great -- about Sen. Tom Coburn (Republican, of course, of Oklahoma) blocking veterans insurance funding.

He has a "hold" on it and apparently it cannot move forward without him releasing his "hold."

My outrage on this is that there is such a rule in the first place. What kind of moronic rule is it that allows a senator single-handedly block something like this? The whole country comes to a standstill just because one senator says so?

At that point, how is it we get anything done? Put a "hold" on it and nothing happens.

Whatever -- he definitely ought to release his "hold" on this issue. Twerp.

I'm putting a "hold" on the rule in the first place. Get rid of it.
