Oklahoma's U.S. Senators, Republicans Jim Inhofe and James Lankford, blamed Democrats as the most recent coronavirus relief proposal failed to reach enough votes to survive a filibuster.
"Disappointed, but not surprised Senate Democrats blocked our targeted COVID-19 relief bill," Lankford said in a statement. "Only in Washington, D.C., would a $300 billion dollar piece of legislation be considered 'skinny', not even mentioning the $3 trillion we've already spent. We shouldn't continue spending money just because we can, we have to focus on what's needed."
