Dr. No (or: 9-11 Responders’ Response)

December 22nd, 2010

Inspired by Ground Zero Workers Visit Coburn’s Office To Beg Him To Lift Hold On 9/11 First Responders Bill (ThinkProgress 12/22/10 10:00 a.m.) and Firefighters urge Coburn to drop opposition to 9/11 bill (The Hill 12/22/10 8:32 a.m.).


“He was a senator he was a doctor and he took an oath to help people that are sick. He’s going against his oath as a doctor. He can vote any way he wants as a senator, but as a doctor, he just embarrassed the medical profession.” – 9-11 First Responders group leader John Feal after being thrown out of Senator Coburn’s office


Dr. Coburn, I don’t think the country approves of your plan

To let the 9-11 responders die off to a man.


Your oath as a doctor was to “first, do no harm,”

Your breaking of which has caused your constituents alarm.


There have been hearings, contrary to your claim–

Just watch the video of the empty chair bearing your name.


Why are you so unmitigatingly hostile

To the first responders harmed by their work on the pile?


They came from all over the country to help us all,

And you made them come to DC and wait in your hall.


]Here’s a concept that may seem strange:

Try listening to them (and your constituents) for a change.
