It's done, We need more Colburns in the Party:

"Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) has made a deal with Senate Democrats to allow the 9/11 first responders bill to go forward to the House today, assuming it passes the Senate as expected. In exchange for Coburn’s agreement to forgo the usual debate period, the bill’s price tag will decrease from $6.2 billion to $4.2 billion. “I’m standing for us as America, the realization that we have to do things efficiently and economically,” Coburn told ABC’s Jonathan Karl. “We’ve worked out a deal now that spends a whole lot less money, accomplishes exactly the same thing, and does it in a way that protects our future. Every bill should have to go through that — and the fact that they don’t is a problem. That’s why we’re $14 trillion in debt.” “So I don’t mind taking the heat,” Coburn added, referring to the criticism about his opposition to the legislation. “You know, as a physician I care about those people. As a citizen, I care about the firefighters of my own city and every other city. The fact is you can still do it right. So you take all the heat, but you still it get done. So what we need is more people taking more heat so we get the right things done.” According to ABC, changes in the legislation include closing the Victims Compensation fund in five (instead of twenty) years, and setting caps on lawyers’ fees."
More to come on this.

Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized

Rush is said to be doing ok now.

"HONOLULU -- Conservative radio talk host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Honolulu hospital on Wednesday afternoon with chest pains, sources told KITV. Paramedics responded to the call at 2:41 p.m. at the Kahala Hotel and Resort. Limbaugh, 58, suffered from chest pains, sources said. Limbaugh was sitting in a chair in his ninth-floor hotel room at the Kahala when emergency crews arrived, sources said. He told medical crews that he was taking medication for a back problem, sources said. Paramedics treated him and took him to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition. He will not be released from the hospital on Wednesday night, sources said. Officials with the Rush Limbaugh Program released a statement Wednesday night. "Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today, after suffering chest pains. Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes, and he will keep you updated via RushLimbaugh.com."
Over at the lefty rag and Drudge Wannabe "Raw Story":

"Limbaugh has a long and public history of health problems. Besides his predilection for cigars and obvious weight problem, the conservative radio icon also has a storied history of prescription drug abuse."

 Lefty Raw Story fails to mention that Limbaugh has been under the weight radar for months now. I would peruse the lefty blogs for the typical "I hope he dies" comments, but it's not worth it.

 Get well soon.
