Well, you missed out on your promise. This tax-relief-for-the-wealthy(TRW) is a behemoth of a tax bill, and anything but simple tax relief for the middle class. I know you all will be so happy and pleased with yourselves, just like you were when you had that frat boy kegger after repealing the ACA in the House. But, the only other people who will be pleased are the Koch brothers, the trump family, and you millionaires in congress. Thanks alot, teabaggers. But remember, there will be a reckoning.

Glad you signed this screed of greed. It will help the 2018 voter. This is for the elite’s you represent who own banks and real estate companies, and cry about how your private school son, Scorinthians, needs a break for his trust that never paid taxes anyway!

French Hill, you have handed me a project in my retirement. I haven't worked in a political campaign in nearly forty years, but I will work hard and give freely to see you defeated in 2018.

From what I have read about your bill, my taxes will be either unchanged or higher. And you put Medicare at risk for cuts.

I have two grown children. Their taxes, if they go down at all, will drop only slightly, and perhaps only temporarily. In exchange for that, they will be saddled with the consequences of your budget deficits for decades to come.

You deserve to lose in 2018.

The principle of Congressional elections is to elect a Representative who will, once elected represent the interests of his/her total constituency during their term in office. Not just the citizens who voted for the Representative and most certainly not for the interests of the contributors to the candidates campaign...most of whom do not live in the district or even in the state of Arkansas. One way of saying it is that the Representative should serve their constituency in a statesmanlike manner. It is very clear that French Hill is not a statesman, but is representing those out of district, out of state contributors who will provide him funding for his re-election. The last individual to perform as a statesman in this district was Vic Snyder whose first question in voting on any legislation was "is this best for the people that I represent". French Hill's first question is "is this best for the special interests I represent". The same is true with the other Congressman whose staff wrote an opinion to be published in today's paper. A guest opinion that advances a story intended to dupe their constituents...full of false information that many would call "damn lies". Congressmen, is it really worth selling your souls for money to get re-elected? What a great example that sets for the future generation of Arkansans. Shame on you
