(Tulsa, Oklahoma) Ucs News: Republican Senator of Oklahoma, Tom Coburn, has vowed to personally help his suffering constituents. Following a health care town hall meeting in which Coburn offered to help those in need his office has been flooded with requests for assistance.
The Coburn Healthcare plan was launched after a tearful encounter with a troubled Tulsa resident. “Senator Coburn, we need help,” she said. “My husband has traumatic brain injury. His health insurance will not cover him to eat and drink. And what I need to know is, are you going to help him, where he can eat and drink? We left the nursing home, and they told us we were on our own.”
Based on her description of the situation, an insurance company is rationing care. It is denying him the assistance that he apparently needs to live, a decision made and confirmed by insurance company bureaucrats and lawyers, not by the man’s doctor.
Coburn shocked by the testimony fumbled for words. As the woman continued to cry, Coburn told her that his office would try to assist her individually. But, he added, “the idea that the government is the solution to our problems is an inaccurate, a very inaccurate statement but I will help you and anyone else in Oklahoma that needs help. Please call me I will Help”
