PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- We can only assume that, at some point in the not-so-distant future, Congress will restart the government it shut down and get back to something resembling work.When that happens, Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is going to continue his lonely quest to make sports leagues with revenues in excess of $10 million pay taxes. That includes the National Hockey League, Professional Golfers Association, Association of Tennis Professionals Tour, Women's Tennis Association Tour, U.S. Tennis Association, National Hot Rod Association and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association - all of which exist as tax-exempt organizations under Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.
