Tom Coburn Establishes Nap Time In The Senate

Senator Bernie Sanders proposed an amendment to establish a single-payer health care system. Tom Coburn responded by requesting that Sanders’s 767-page amendment be read in full on the Senate floor.

Sanders tried to dispense with the reading but Coburn exercised Senate rules to force this to proceed in an effort to slow down consideration of health care reform on the behalf of the Republicans.

I know there is no chance of this happening, but wouldn’t it serve them right if reading the full amendment changed some minds and it actually passed?
