From Sen. Bunning's USAToday Op-Ed:
"Many people asked me, "Why now?" My answer is, "Why not now?" Why can't a non-controversial measure in the Senate that would help those in need be paid for? If the Senate cannot find $10 billion to pay for a measure we all support, we will never pay for anything."
One more time. This would plausibly be a "principled" stand were it not for his record of support for the Medicare Drug Benefit amongst other unfunded boondoggles.
