Tom Coburn holds up aid to Haiti

Written by Eric on October 1, 2010.

After the earthquake in Haiti nearly a year ago, the U.S. government spoke of its desire to give financial aid to the Haitian people.

This help was going to come in the form of $1.15 billion. Have our brothers and sisters in Haiti received this promised aid? No.

Sen. Tom Coburn, a Republican from Oklahoma, has held up the bill. According to his spokesperson: “He is holding up the bill because it includes an unnecessary senior Haiti coordinator when we already have one …”
