Desertion should not be rewarded. This morning, I joined Fox & Friends First to discuss the letter I wrote to the U.S. Army urging them not to give Private Bergdahl the potential 300k in back pay that he could receive. There's no excuse for putting your fellow soldiers in harm's way by abandoning your post, and it certainly shouldn't come with a pay out once you return.

Today, I supported the U.S. House’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act because it significantly simplifies the tax code and would allow more middle-income families and businesses in the 1st District of Arkansas to invest in themselves rather than in the federal government. In addition to nearly doubling the standard deduction for individuals and married couples, a median U.S. family of four would receive a $1,182 tax cut, and taxpayers across the board would see an increase in their after-tax income. This version of the bill also expands the child tax credit while preserving the adoption tax credit and popular retirement savings mechanisms. This bill also lowers the top rate from 39.6 percent to 25 percent for small businesses, and it reduces the tax rate on the smallest pass-through businesses to 9% within 5 years. In the coming weeks, I’ll continue to monitor the Senate’s version in advance of a final vote on tax reform.

As an Army veteran myself, I’m very concerned that Private Bergdahl may receive more money in back pay than the families of the fallen soldiers who lost their lives searching for him. That sends the wrong message to our servicemen and women, and I don’t believe the pay is deserved. While we should always do everything in our power to bring home prisoners of war, given the circumstances of Bergdahl’s capture and his admission of desertion, it is not appropriate to award that pay.
