Both of Oklahoma’s senators spoke on the Senate floor on Thursday: Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, talked about China (he’s not a big fan) and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, talked about health care reform (government meddling in huge part of the economy).
According to C-SPAN’s web site, the two are very familiar faces on the floor of the Senate this year. In fact, Coburn has made the fifth most appearances of all senators in terms of days (37)_ just behind the four main Democratic and Republican leaders.
Coburn has spent a total of 12 hours talking on the floor of the Senate, already more than he spent in 2008.
Inhofe also made the top ten with his 35 days (9 hours and 38 minutes) on the floor.
All of their speeches are available on the site.
