Will Tom Cotton help Oklahoma or hold it hostage to ideology?

Here's a list of the Republicans who voted against disaster aid for areas hit by Hurricane Sandy. It includes Oklahoma congressmen as well as, famously, Rep. Tom Cotton, the Club for Growth's consul in Arkansas's 4th District, itself a frequent tornado casualty.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is holding firm. He wants disaster aid for Oklahoma, but he wants it paid for by cuts somewhere else. That's been Cotton's past stance on disaster money. Will he hold firm when it's a red state feeling the pain?

It's simple. The American way is to help the needy without condition, certainly not that somebody else must sacrifice first. Take no storm hostages, certainly not for ideology. There but for the grace of God go all of us.
