Sen.Tom Coburn: Senate Republicans Will Watch for Sweetheart Deals in Health Care

Senator Tom Coburn MD (R-OK) warned House Democrats yesterday.

“We will find out and out you if you sell your vote.”

From the Senate Republican Doctors Show today:

FOX News

Republicans have a message for Democrats considering switching to "yes" on health care reform: We'll be watching you.

Senator Tom Coburn ( R - OKLAHOMA) warned members of the House of Representatives that Republican senators will watch carefully for any deals the White House or Democratic leaders make with members in exchange for their votes.

Senator Tom Coburn threatened House Democrats– We will out you for selling your vote.

“I want to send a couple of messages to my colleagues in the House. If you voted “no” and you vote “yes” and you lose your election, and you think any nomination for a federal position isn’t going to be held up in the Senate, I’ve got news for you. It will be held.
Number two is if you get a deal, a parochial deal for you or your district, I’ve already instructed my staff and the staff of 7 other senators that we will look at every appropriations bill at every level at every incidence and we will outline it by district and we will associate that with the buying of your vote. So, if you think you can cut a deal now and it can not come out until after the election, I want to tell you that that aint gonna happen. And, be prepared to defend selling your vote in the House.”

A senior Senate GOP aide told Fox News that his staff found what he says is a sweetheart deal for Tennessee, aimed at Rep. Bart Gordon, D-Tenn., who just flipped to a "yes" vote.

The bill includes a provision that the aide said would provide the state with additional federal funding for Medicaid expenses.
