About Me

I reside in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I am female, single, and one year from full retirement. I'm already retired from a 30-year career with IBM. Love my Victorian house built in 1858 and my dogs and cats.

Rep. Steve Womack is "terribly disappointed" and admits GOP

hasn't "learned to govern."

Here's the complete quote:
"We haven't learned to govern. It's like ... we are stuck and we're still in the minority, and all we know how to do is vote 'no'. Today we had an opportunity to make the health-care system in this country better, more affordable and more accessible, and we just failed to execute it, so I'm terribly disappointed".

OMG, ex-Sentor Bill Frist now believes in climate change and protecting

the environment! Just got the latest magazine from The Nature Conservancy and they have a write-up about him. Apparently, he's been named to their board. Here's a quote:

"I have seen firsthand how the spread of infectious disease, Zika virus, issues around clean water and cholera, and insufficient food supplies are exacerbated by a changing climate. These changes represent some of the greatest health risks of the 21st century."

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).
