Watch: Former GOP senator says Washington has too much power – and lawmakers don’t care

Former Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma opened up about why he left Washington and how frustrating it is to watch lawmakers push their power past the bounds of the Constitution today on “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson.”

“What is the solution that will actually cause us to start addressing the real diseases that are undermining our freedoms?” he asked.
