WEB EXTRA: Senator Blunt Discusses FEMA Budget for Tornado Aid

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senator Roy Blunt says federal money is available to help the victims in Oklahoma.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senator Roy Blunt says federal money is available to help the victims in Oklahoma.

The Republican says the FEMA budget has enough funding to cover the disaster, but he thinks the money should be distributed over time and not all at once.

"We've had our own share of tornadoes and floods and other things and it makes a big difference when taxpayers from all over America come in and say we're going to help you clean this up. We're going to help you restore the power lines. We're going to help with the community costs and not the individual costs as much as the cost of just restoring what taxpayers collectively in some way have to replace."

Check out Blunt's entire interview, above.
