Tom Coburn holds up aid to Haiti

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.

Not one penny of the promised aid has reached Haiti. Meanwhile, Haitians continue to barely survive in shacks and tents, wondering when the promised aid will come. So what is holding up this authorized bill from going through the Senate?

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 …”
