Obama and McCain Sign on to PEPFAR Bill

Kudos to Sens. McCain and Obama for (finally) cosponsoring the PEPFAR bill that is being stalled in the Senate by Sen. Tom Coburn and his merry band of fellow nutjob Senators.

A little late to the party but still welcome. Here is a list of the Sponsors of the bill:

Joe Biden (D-DE)
Richard Lugar (R-IN)
Chris Dodd (D-CT)
Richard Durbin (D-IL)
Chuck Hagel (R-NE)
Edward Kennedy (D-MA)
John Kerry (D-MA)
John Sununu (R-NH)
Gordon Smith (R-OR)
Barack Obama (D-IL)
John McCain (R-AZ)

Unfortunately, it is still not enough to remove the hold Coburn has placed on the bill.

Go to the ONE Campaign web site and sign a petition to Majority Leader Reid and Minority Leader McConnell to show some leadership on this issue.
