Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, the one member of the Oklahoma congressional delegation who isn’t on the ballot this election year, is holding a town hall meeting at 2 p.m. on Monday at the Langston University campus in Oklahoma City, 4205 Lincoln Boulevard.
Coburn has been busy lately, campaigning for colleagues and GOP presidential nominee John McCain.
The senator will no doubt be talking about the economy and the recent $700 billion rescue plan of the financial industry. Coburn, perhaps the most fiscally conservative member of Congress, probably surprised a lot of people when he voted for the rescue plan. He didn’t do it gladly, but he was concerned about what might happen if it didn’t pass. His speech on the Senate floor appears a few items below this one.
