Tell Congress: Don’t Hold Oklahoma Emergency Aid Hostage

Oklahoma has been devastated by a major tornado, and it’s up to all of us to help.   Sadly, however, some in Congress are already threatening to use Federal disaster aid as a political weapon:

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) said just hours after a major tornado ravaged his state that he would use the federal relief funds as a cudgel to force Democrats into accepting more spending cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicare… CQ’s public-facing side reported on the comments later that night, saying Coburn will “absolutely” demand spending cuts to offset his state’s need for federal aid after Monday’s devastating tornadoes.

This is not the time for partisan games.  This is not the time to score political points.

This is the time for all Americans to come together, and help the people of Oklahoma.

    I purchased a wood caivnrg of a beautiful cross to give to the Pastor that married my husband and I. Our Pastor and his wife collect crosses and they absolutely loved the rustic caivnrg cross we gave them. It is beautiful, very well crafted and unique.
