If federal Republicans paid much attention to public opinion polls in 2009, they should have unilaterally crawled in a hole and died, U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton told the audience of Monday’s town hall in El Dorado.
But that all changed with the right policy, he said.
If you were a member of Congress and could vote either for a bad bill that would at least address a critical need, or no bill at all, which would you choose?
That was the question Tom Cotton faced Jan. 4, only three days after being sworn in as a member of Congress. He voted no.
Tom Cotton is only 35 years old but already has a résumé anyone nearing retirement age would envy.
The Harvard Law School graduate has clerked for a federal judge, earned a Bronze Star for his military service overseas, tended to the family cattle farm — and can run a marathon in 2 hours and 51 minutes.
