Congressman Steve Womack: How The Scowling One voted last week

Posted By on Mon, Mar 20, 2017 at 11:00 AM

Congressman Steve Womack, who likes to imagine that he “leads from the front,” sends out a regular cheery email message to constituents, while his actual votes are included in the Sunday edition of the Arkansas-Democrat-Gazette - yet another reason to buy a newspaper.

And how did The Scowling One vote last week?

He voted to block an attempt to have the Ways and Means Committee use their legal authority to obtain Donald Trump’s tax returns from 2006 to 2015.

Voted yes on a bill which will reduce civil service protections and weaken collective bargaining rights at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

We aren’t just talking janitors here, but also medical professionals.

Voted yes on a bill that would make it easier for veterans with mental health issues to buy a gun.

This at a time when veteran suicides are at an all-time high.

TSO benefits from the fact that newspaper readership is down, and many of his constituents don’t keep up with his voting record. let’s see if we can change that for him.

You know he’ll appreciate it.
