    WASHINGTON - Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe (R) said on Tuesday that federal aid to tornado-ravaged parts of his home state will be "totally different" than a Hurricane Sandy aid bill he voted against late last year.

    • Texas, Red States Beat Blue States On Jobs, Growth

      Posted 08:02 AM ET

      Texas outperformed every other state in the nation on jobs and growth over the past decade, according to the latest annual report on state economic performance released Thursday by the American Legislative Exchange Council. Michigan came in dead last.

      The rankings are based on state GDP growth, population shifts, and changes in non-farm payroll jobs between 2001 and 2011.

      The ALEC report also finds that Utah has the best economic outlook this year, and Vermont the worst.

      That outlook ranking is based on more than a dozen public policies that the authors say are closely related to economic growth — including various tax rates, workers compensation costs, minimum wage laws, right to work laws, government jobs as a share of the workforce, and debt service as a share of tax revenues.

      In addition, an IBD analysis of the data finds that conservative, Republican states vastly outperformed liberal, Democratic states over the past decade on jobs and economic growth, and attracted more people to their states.

      In fact, of the 10 states that had the best economic performance over the past decade, all but two — Nevada and Washington — are solid red states, based on the past four presidential elections. Other top economic performers include Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, Idaho and Arizona.

      At the other end of the spectrum, all but two of the worst-performing states are solidly blue. In addition to Michigan, bottom-dwelling states include New Jersey, Illinois, Connecticut and Massachusetts. The only non-blue states in the bottom 10 were Ohio and Missouri.

    • You suck at being truthful. You need to get a spot on PMSNBC, you'd fit in perfectly.
      Maybe you just forgot or maybe just totally ignorant of the facts. But there are now billions in the budget for just this type of tragedy so offsets are not necessary as they should have been in the Sandy tragedy.
      Why are you a despicable libiot, not just a libiot idiot.

    • Oklahoma’s Senators Opposed 2011 FEMA Funds, Sandy Aid
      Oklahoma’s two Republican senators, Tom Coburn and James Inhofe, may be in an awkward position: their tornado-devastated state needs help from the U.S. disaster relief agency whose plea for funds
