Coburn Blocks the Global Poverty Act

The Global Poverty Act is an historic bill that will help cut global poverty in half by 2015. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has placed a hold on the bill; blocking it, along with over 80 other bills ranging from solving civil rights crimes to protecting children from sex offenders, from passing in the Senate. It will be difficult to pass the Global Poverty Act unless Coburn lifts his hold on it. We need people in Oklahoma to tell Sen. Coburn to support the Global Poverty Act
