Oklahoma currently ranks third in the nation … in terms of total federal disaster and fire declarations. This is not a new trend, every year OK needs Federal help.
Enter Republican Sens. Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn who are fiscal hawks who have repeatedly voted against funding disaster aid for other parts of the country. See Super Storm Sandy. They also have opposed increased funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
It appears increasingly likely that residents who lost homes and businesses [in the Oklahoma tornado] will turn to the federal government for emergency disaster aid.
With their vindictive and evil voting record on disaster aid for other states solidifying their as*hole status, both Coburn and Inhofe appear to sing a different tune when it comes to such funding for Oklahoma.
