How soon before these deaths will be blamed on the Republican’s sequester cutting “vital” funds from weather warnings systems? I am certain Obama is preparing for a trip to Oklahoma for a photo op and will like in the wake of hurricane Sandy promise all kinds of federal aid which will never arrive.
I am 100% sure sequester will be blamed by pukes on the Hill. Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer the likely suspects.
Funny you should mention that...Bill Clinton tried to shut down the NWS Storm Prediction Center, based in Norman, OK, in an effort to “save money.” The SPC issues tornado watches for the nation and the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) conducts research into severe weather. Both organizations were saved from closing by a Congressman named J.C. Watts.
