Sens. Inhofe, Coburn Approve End-of-Year Legislative Action (Dec 17, 2010)
WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) today declared what he calls a “double victory” for Oklahoma taxpayers.

The state’s senior U.S. Senator said in a statement yesterday's House passage of the massive bipartisan tax package would save each taxpayer an average of $2,800 annually. Inhofe called the bill “94 percent good,” saying he did not approve of the terms of the Unemployment Insurance extension, or the ethanol provisions in the bill.

He also called Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s decision to abandon a 1,900 page catchall spending bill a victory for Oklahoma, citing funds to climate change programs and cuts in military spending.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) credited the American people and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for the defeat of the Omnibus spending bill. The well-known deficit hawk said his political body’s charge is to set priorities, and applauded Republican members of the Appropriations Committee for recognizing that the government can’t fund every project that might have merit.
