Oct 15 2017 Iran
We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Tom Cotton is associated, including Obamacare and America. Most recently, Tom Cotton has been quoted saying: “The president should decline to certify, not primarily on grounds related to Iran's technical compliance, but rather based on the long catalog of the regime's crimes and perfidy against the United States, as well as the deal's inherent weakness. The world needs to know we're serious, we're willing to walk away, and we're willing to reimpose sanctions – and a lot more than that. And they'll know that when the president declines to certify the deal, and not before.” in the article Trump Prepares New Iran Strategy, Including Bid to Alter Nuclear Deal.

Tom Cotton quotes

Jul 26 2017

Sounds like a solution in search of a problem. Senator McCain rules the committee with an iron hand, so a lot of it will be his decision.feedback

Donald Trump recognizes that it's possible to be both pro-immigrant and to believe that immigration levels are too high and skewed against educated, high-skilled, English-speaking immigrants.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - Obamacare

I don't see how any Republican senator who voted just 18 months ago for this very piece of legislation could now flip-flop 18 months on with Obamacare still inflicting so much harm on Americans, and the fact that we campaigned on this for four straight elections.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

The accounts of these memos he allegedly wrote would be at least triple hearsay, what Donald Trump said, according to Jim Comey, according to someone who saw the memo, according to the New York Times' reporter who had it read to him, didn't even read it.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Immigration

It's not a matter of the president changing. I didn't do that because of the president's position on immigration during the campaign. I hope that traditional Republicans reflect on the 2016 election and think about what they got wrong in the preceding four and eight years. What you see is what you get with the president. I think that's a good measure of a man. Not just someone in politics. You don't get much different in private than in you do public. I would encourage him to bring this discipline and focus to the job every day.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

We've certainly seen a number of unhelpful distractions over the last few weeks.feedback

The general counsel of the CIA will help Director (Mike) Pompeo navigate the many twists and turns of the thorny legal terrain as our intelligence community defends our country against a wide range of threats: terrorism; cyberwarfare; and good, old-fashioned espionage. We need people of the highest caliber serving at our national-security agencies. And there is broad agreement that Courtney Elwood fits the bill.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Iran

It is time for a stronger Syria policy, one that holds the Assad government, Russia, and Iran accountable for their brutality. That policy begins with demanding Assad's departure from Syria.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - NSA

Susan Rice is the Typhoid Mary of the Obama administration foreign policy.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Wiretapping

Susan Rice is the Typhoid Mary of the Obama administration foreign policy. Every time something went wrong, she seemed to turn up in the middle of it, whether it was these allegations of improper unmasking, intentional or improper surveillance, whether it's Benghazi or the other fiascos over the eight years of the Obama administration.feedback

Apr 01 2017

Most conservatives I know have long believed that tax reform would look at all of the carve-outs in the tax code, not introduce a whole new concept of taxation.feedback

When you lose the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, the problem is not with a specific faction in the House, it's with the bill.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Iran

The president has said he's putting Iran on notice, and passing this bill would be an unmistakable sign of resolve.

Mar 21 2017 - Obamacare

Despite the proposed amendments, I still cannot support the House health-care bill, nor would it pass the Senate.feedback

Mar 19 2017

It's fixable, but it's going to take a lot of work.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Trumpcare

I can tell you a number, if not a majority, of Republican senators think that this process has been too breakneck, too slapdash, and they do not see a good solution for the American people coming out of the House bill as drafted.feedback

Mar 15 2017

I would say to my friends in the House of Representatives with whom I serve, Do not walk the plank and vote for a bill that cannot pass the Senate and then have to face the consequences of that vote.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Easter

There is no three-phase process. There is no three-step plan. That is just political talk. It's just politicians engaging in spin.feedback

Mar 14 2017

If we had those Democratic votes, we wouldn't need three steps. We would just be doing that right now on this legislation altogether. That's why it's so important that we get this legislation right, because there is no step three.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I suspect they don't have anything close to a majority of their members who are willing to vote for this bill now. I know many of them, and they come from all stripes. They're not just hard-line conservatives. Many of them are centrists, or many of them are just being practical-minded about this bill the way I am.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I'm afraid that if they vote for this bill they're going to put the House majority at risk next year. … I'm worried it could make it worse in some ways.feedback

Mar 13 2017

Do not walk the plank and vote for a bill that cannot pass the Senate and then have to face the consequences of that vote. If they vote for this bill, they're going to put the House majority at risk next year.feedback

Mar 11 2017 - Immigration

Our legislation is the first step in that.feedback

Mar 09 2017

House health care bill can't pass Senate w/o major changes. To my friends in House: pause, start over. Get it right, don't get it fast.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I doubt many Arkansans or Americans more broadly object to taking a harder look at foreigners coming into our country from war-torn nations with known terror networks; I think they're wondering why we don't do that already. If Donald Trump is elected president, I will support him when he is right and we'll try to change direction when he is wrong.feedback

Mar 09 2017

House health-care bill can't pass Senate w/o major changes. To my friends in House: pause, start over. Get it right, don't get it fast.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Republican Party

GOP shouldn't act like Dems did in O'care. No excuse to release bill Mon night, start voting Wed. With no budget estimate!feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Wiretapping

We're going to follow the facts wherever they lead us. And I'm sure that this matter will be a part of that inquiry. ''That doesn't mean that none of these things happened. It simply means I haven't seen that yet.feedback

Feb 26 2017

If that leads to potential contacts between Trump associates and the Russian government, then we will explore those as well.feedback

Feb 26 2017 - Russia

There's no allegations of any crime occurring. There's not even an indication that there's criminal investigations underway by the FBI as opposed to counter-intelligence investigations. If we get down that road, that's a decision that Attorney General Sessions can make at the time. Vladimir Putin is KGB. Always will be. The Senate Intelligence Committee, for as long as I've been on it, has been examining Russia's attempts to undermine faith in our electoral process and undermine our interests around the world.feedback

Feb 23 2017

I would say this, though, if you feel that strongly about the secretary of education maybe the Department of Education has too much power.feedback

Feb 07 2017 - Immigration

It simply tries to get a handle on 1 million immigrants coming here a year, virtually none of whom are coming here based on their employment skills or demonstrated economic need. I don't think our immigration system is working for working Americans.feedback

Jan 30 2017

"It's simply wrong to call the president's executive order concerning immigration and refugees 'a religious test' of any kind,"feedback

Jan 24 2017

"He has to tell the president exactly what things cost,". "The president of course sets the agenda, but he deserves a clear-eyed view – not rose-colored glasses.".feedback

Jan 07 2017 - Obamacare

I don't think we can just repeal Obamacare and say we're going to get an answer two years from now. We haven't coalesced around a solution for six years, in part because it is so complicated. Kicking the can down the road for a year or two years isn't going to make it any easier to solve.feedback

Jan 06 2017

"I think when we repeal Obamacare we need to have the solution in place moving forward,". "Again, the solution may be implemented in a deliberate fashion, but I don't think we can repeal Obamacare and say we'll get the answer two years from now.".feedback

That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server.feedback

Jul 19 2016

For eight years, we've seen what happens when America leads from behind. Leading from behind–that's not what the Army taught me. We don't fight because we hate our enemies, but because we love our country. We love its freedom. We love that we're born equal and live free, that no one rules without consent. We know these things are worth fighting and dying for because they make life worth living for.feedback

Jul 19 2016

To everyone who agrees that America should lead the way, let me say loud and clear: help is on the way.feedback
