Tom Cotton’s Political Career
As a freshman, Cotton became a vocal opponent of the Obama administration’s foreign and domestic policies. He voted for an act to eliminate the 2013 statutory pay adjustment for federal employees, which prevented a 0.5% pay increase for all federal workers from taking effect in February 2013.
Cotton voted against the 2013 Farm Bill over concerns about waste and fraud in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, voting later that month to strip funding from that program
Cotton accused Obama of presenting a “false choice” between the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and war. Cotton was also criticized in some media outlets for underestimating what successful military action against Iran would entail.
On July 21, 2015, Cotton and Mike Pompeo claimed to have uncovered the existence of secret side agreements between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on procedures for inspection and verification of Iran’s nuclear activities under the JCPOA.
Following the murder of George Floyd, Cotton rejected the view that there is “systemic racism in the criminal justice system in America”. Amid the ensuing protests, Cotton advocated on Twitter that the military be used to support police, and to give “No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.”
A few days later, The New York Times published an opinion piece by Cotton titled “Send in the Troops”, arguing for the deployment of federal troops to counter looting and rioting in major American cities.
