Asa is as bad for Arkansas as NAFTA is for America. He is a left wing democrat hiding under a Republican title. He has and always be for sale to highest bidder. Aka Walmart Teach for America. Once a lobbyist always a lobbyist. He gave away 3 million of our (Arkansas tax payers money) already, he needs to be impeached

jw, Asa is trying to help the farmers, which is the biggest industry in Arkansas. We've already missed selling grain to Cuba, and Mexico, due to the ignorant POTUS bought elsewhere, as a result of his BS. The Nafta thing is more BS that the POTUS has put out there, so that he can impress the uninformed. jw, the world is changing. You might do well to hang on!
