Congressman Tom Cotton Seeks A Sensible Approach

It is quite exciting and refreshing to have a plain spoken guy like Congressman Tom Cotton representing a majority of Arkansans who feel we need a more responsible government.   Responsible in the same simple approach to good fiscal policy in Washington that is required in our own checkbooks.
Many have questioned Tom Cotton on his “NO” vote on giving Federal aid to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  As horrific as this tragedy was,  I interpreted his approach as he was simply interested in what other Federal program was going to be cut to provide the funds for the proposed aid.  At a time when our Federal debt has tripled in recent years to over $16 Trillion, I find his approach very sensible.

great comment mr swink

the 16 trillion dollar national debt is more dangerous to the future of america and its citizens than any foreign enemy!

empty platitudes offered by Jack

Jack, don't you think that a true leader who went against such a vote of compassion would have come forward to say where exactly the offsetting cut should have been made? He didn't. Which makes him a complete phony in my book. Stay star struck, but you're blinded by the tea lights.


isn't it refreshing to see a politician that has the courage to say no to government spending when each man, woman, and child in america is burdened with a massive federal debt that amounts to over 53,000 dollars per person? thats 212,000 dollars for a family of four so what would a young family of four do today if someone called the debt?

financial disaster

yep courage is leading the way to financial disaster! so how about a simple no vote to over the top spending! way to go cotton!
