Attended Womack's Townhall in West Fork this morning. I was

able to ask one of the last questions. About 100 people got into the council room and there were around 150 more in the parking lot. Rep. Womack wouldn't move the discussion outside. I would estimate 75 to 80% of the attendees don't approve the Republican agenda. He talked about the new 'unified' government's top 2 goals for this year. Repeal the ACA, with vague reference to replacement, and tax reform
He explained his vote to repeal all of Obama's regulations like the protection of streams from coal mines as economic killers and EPA overreach. Says we can't afford Medicare and other services. So, I asked him why the human cost of repealing things wasn't more important than the economic and stated that the solution should be to raise taxes. I got applause from audience and set him off. He yelled, "I wasn't elected by NW Arkansas to go to Washington and raise taxes!" People yelled back, "How do you know?" I would guess that the only ones who expressed that view to him was the Walton family (Walmart).

2. and there you have it

The god-damned Republicans don't want to spend 1 single penny of rich peoples' and corporations' money to help anyone but themselves. They are evil criminals hell-bent on extrating as much money as possible from privatizing and profitizing everything that isn't nailed down. Welcome to Ayn Rand's virtue of selfishness.

4. He's very abusive, isn't he!

I was at a town hall where he screamed at a woman for talking about school tuition issues. It was horrifying.
