"Maverick Sen. Tom Coburn (R) of Oklahoma lost his first assault on the ethanol tax credit by a lopsided procedural vote, 59 to 40. But Tuesday’s vote is only the beginning of a siege on perceived pork in the tax code by the lawmaker who led the charge to outlaw pork spending. ... Of the 40 votes to oppose a $6 billion annual tax subsidy for ethanol blenders, 34 were Republican."
