Arkansas congressman, rival spar over tax cuts, health care

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) – Republican Rep. French Hill and Democratic challenger Joyce Elliott clashed over President Donald’s Trump’s tax cuts and the federal health overhaul Monday as the two met up for their only debate in an Arkansas congressional race that’s turned unexpectedly tight.

Hill, who represents a district that includes Little Rock and seven central Arkansas counties, criticized Elliott over her opposition to the 2017 tax cuts. He said one of Elliott’s first votes in Washington would be to back former Vice President Joe Biden’s call to roll back some of the Trump tax cuts for those making more than $400,000.

“Her first vote when she gets to the House, if she got to the House, would be to vote for (Speaker) Nancy Pelosi. Her second vote, a $4 trillion increase in taxes,” Hill said at the debate televised by Arkansas PBS.
