Coburn and conservatives protest the ‘Reid vengeance bill.’

Today, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is introducing the The Advance America’s Priorities Act, which is “a package of about 40 bills that have in many cases been single-handedly stalled by one of the Senate’s more conservative members,” Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK). But Coburn and other conservatives are not happy about Reid’s efforts to pass the bundle of popular, bipartisan legislation. Coburn took to the Senate floor last night to “protest” the upcoming bill “for more than an hour.” Bitter about Reid’s tactics, some conservatives have taken to referring to the bill as the “Reid vengeance bill.”
