Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Little Rock, a member of the subcommittee, spoke for the Arkansas delegation and for all of us when he expressed frustration at the illogic of removing the A-10s from Fort Smith, which has an ideal location thanks to the nearby bombing range and the joint forces training possibilities at Fort Chaffee. “All of us in the delegation are trying to figure out the logic of the decision. We want facts and analysis we can read. … But we have nothing that the Air Force can point to to justify some of these positions,” Griffin said.
Regardless of its constitutionality, Obamacare is bad policy, and most Americans know it. It's a 2,700-page law crammed full of tax increases that make it harder for businesses to hire more employees; no amount of word games can hide that now. But one thing is clear: If Obamacare's supporters had admitted that the core of the bill was a massive tax increase on middle-class Americans, it wouldn't have passed.
Republican members of Arkansas' congressional delegation are vowing to repeal the federal health care law despite the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold the overhaul. Republican Congressmen Rick Crawford And Tim Griffin Said Thursday they plan to continue pushing for a repeal of the law that justices upheld in a 5-4 ruling. Griffin criticized the ruling as a "monumental error." Republican Sen. John Boozman also called for repeal, saying he was disappointed with the court's ruling.

"If you raise my premium $2,000, I'm not going to celebrate because I get $80 back. I'd rather my premium never gone up," said Arkansas Republican Representative Tim Griffin.
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, who demonstrate that they meet certain criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization. The Administration did not consult with Congress before unilaterally making this major change to America's immigration policy.
With a call to the Rock of Hope organization, who in turn would call Congressman Tim Griffin, things started to look up. "This is a service member who was shot by a self-proclaimed terrorist," said Republican Congressman Tim Griffin of Arkansas. Congressman Griffin said they would start to dig into Ezeagwula's case in early January of this year. "If he's eligible for it we want to make sure he gets it," said Congressman Griffin. Finally came a lump sum payment from the VA, but it would only carry the family for three months.
n Little Rock on Thursday, Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin and Rep. Rick Crawford were joined by Tom Cotton, the GOP nominee for the 4th District U.S. House seat, to urge President Obama to approve the Keystone pipeline, which they say means jobs for companies in Arkansas like Welspun Tubular.
If work on the Keystone XL oil pipeline does not begin soon jobs could be in jeopardy at a Little Rock plant that makes pipe for the project, two of Arkansas’ Republican congressmen warned here today. Tons of pipe for the planned transcontinental pipeline from Canadian oil fields to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast are stockpiled at Welspun Tubular while the Obama administration studies the environmental impact of the project.
Representatives Tim Griffin and Rick Crawford touted TransCanada's plans as vital to the state and national interests. The Congressmen held a press conference in the storage fields of Welspun where five miles of pipe slated for that pipeline are stockpiled. Welspin reportedly laid off 60 employees because of the delay in getting the pipeline built.
