Below are notes from FNC Chad Pergram:
Urgent: Coburn predicts GOPers “will fold like hotcakes” if gov’t closes
Off-cam with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK).
We will fold like hotcakes (if the government closes).
Coburn on why GOP will fold if there’s a shutdown:
Because when the pressure comes from your state, shutting down the government doesn’t work
* Coburn was a freshman House member in ’95 when the government closed. In fact he voted against re-opening it when they finally worked out a deal.
We will not take a hostage we will not for sure shoot.
