Tom the Oakie
Well, I've got to hand it to Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn. In past natural disasters, he has insisted that any aid be tied to offseting budget cuts. Needless to say, people in states like Florida, New York, and New Jersey, all of which have seen some pretty severe hurricanes in the past few years were not happy to have disaster aid challenged by Oklahoma Tom. But, he is consistent. Good old Tom is making the same demand now that his own state has been hit hard. I'm amazed that Oklahoma doesn't require tornado shelters at their public schools.
