Dr. Coburn's Statement on Nomination of John Roberts to U.S. Supreme Court
U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK) today released the following statement regarding President Bush's nomination of John Roberts to the United States Supreme Court.
"It is imperative that the next Supreme Court justice help restore the Constitutional balance of power between the branches of government and leave legislating to Congress and the states," Dr. Coburn said.
"Judge Roberts is entitled to a thorough, fair and civil confirmation process. I look forward to the opportunity to interview Judge Roberts and I support the right of Senators to ask any appropriate question. The only litmus test the Senate should consider is Judge Robert's loyalty to the Constitution and its strict construction," Dr. Coburn said.
