DISASTER: Will Oklahoma legislators be hypocrites?

Since every Oklahoma Republican member of Congress voted against federal relief following the disaster of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast, I understand that to avoid being labeled as hypocrites they will not accept federal emergency assistance but instead have put forward the following plan:

First, cut all taxes for corporations – especially oil companies. Next, distribute guns and ammunition to all citizens of Moore, Okla.

No doubt Republicans are confident that the “invisible hand of the free market” will restore the city to the high living standards currently enjoyed throughout the state of Oklahoma
