Inhofe: Getting Relief Funds for Oklahoma ‘totally different’ from Hurricane Sandy (VIDEO)


MSNBC’s Chris Jansing asked Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) about his vote on the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, and whether his opinion would be different regarding the Oklahoma tornado.

You might recall that After Hurricane Sandy, Inhofe voted against a bill for $50.5 billion in Hurricane Sandy disaster relief calling it a “slush fund.”  When confronted by Jansing about his comments last year, Inhofe  insisted the two issues shouldn’t be linked:

“Let’s look at that, that was totally different. They were getting things — for instance that was supposed to be in New Jersey, they had things in the Virgin Islands, they were fixing roads there, they were putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C.; everyone was getting in and exploiting the tragedy taking place. That won’t happen in Oklahoma.”
