Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) recently announced that he’s going to resign his U.S. Senate seat before his term expires. But it’s not clear to what extent this decision was influenced by the fact he’s suffered a relapse of prostrate cancer. He said in a video making the announcement public that, “I am now convinced that I can best serve my own children and grandchildren by shifting my focus elsewhere.”
So he will soon retire.
On Tuesday, however, he appeared on MSNBC’s morning flagship program and informed viewers that while he’s “doing well,” he’s lost his cancer specialist because of Obamacare, and thus will have to pay higher medical costs out-of-pocket as a result (via Politico).
