When Congressman Steve Womack writes that he is “On the Front,” have we ever considered just who he believes the enemy is? His votes may give us a clue . . .

Based on his votes, his idea of the enemy may well be half of the American people.

Yes, it’s time for yet another thrilling installment of “How Did The Scowling One vote this time?" So without further ado . . .

Voted to block a Democratic bid to have floor consideration of of a bill which would require those who employ 15+ workers to grant at least one hour of sick leave for every 30 thirty of work performed.

Like the rest of his stalwart members of the GOP, Steve Womack declined to speak out about his vote on the floor of the house.

Ever mindful of the health of fellow Americans, The Scowling One voted for a bill prohibiting the EPA from requiring permits under the Clean Water Act regarding discharges into waterways of any pesticides that have been approved by government agencies.

Once again, the President’s Sycophant voted to block a bid by Democrats to obtain copies of Trump’s tax returns.

TSO voted “aye” on repeal of Dodd-Frank regulations.

Things aren’t likely to look up for Womack Watchers - or the American people in general - in the near future.

Today’s Quote

When people die, they cannot be replaced. They leave holes that cannot be filled, for it is the fate - the genetic and neutral fate - of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own life, to die his own death. - Oliver Sacks
