Is Tom Coburn's claim that Oklahoma pays tribes $50 million annually to sell cigarettes true? Nope!

Former Senator Tom Coburn claims that Oklahoma pays tribal governments more than $50 million annually to sell cigarettes. Is that true? I brought Attorney Michael McBride on the show he is an expert when it comes to the various compacts here in Oklahoma. I asked him that question on the show today. I also asked why the Tribes have to ask our(Oklahoma's) permission to do anything? After all they are a sovereign nation, right? Fascinating answers and insight! Give it a listen!
