Dr. No: The Veteran's Best Friend

Beyond the U.S.'s sole survivor of the Great War, there are some 23 million veterans. Most are doing quite well, thank you, but some need help in the worst way.

This is why Congress is trying to enact a $3.7 billion bill that would expand mental care and home assistance to wounded veterans. But Senator Tom "Dr. No" Coburn, the knuckle dragging Republican from Oklahoma, says that's "wasteful spending."

And no, Coburn is not a veteran, having found better things to do during the Vietnam War.
