U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – This week, Americans from all walks of life gathered across the nation to celebrate our country and its Independence. Just 242 years ago, patriots throughout America’s thirteen original colonies convened at the Second Continental Congress and declared our country’s independence from Great Britain.

This unprecedented acknowledgment of our God-given rights through the Declaration of Independence laid the foundation for the great nation we inhabit today; one that guarantees one’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – The Tennessee Valley Corridor summit is an annual event bringing together the best of our innovators, engineers and technologists. It was an honor to return to provide an update on some of our work.

We had a wonderful discussion about ways that the United States will continue to lead the world when it comes to technology. Whether it’s the transition from 4G to 5G, which will bring industries together to develop new technologies, or how self-driving cars factor into that equation, America must lead.

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – I am so pleased that the National Defense Authorization Act passed the House this week with an overwhelming majority. Making sure our men and women in uniform have the resources they need to defend our country is one of my top priorities.

When Fort Campbell and the 101st Airborne expressed how painful budget cuts had been, I went to bat for them. We know how important that base is to military readiness.

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – At President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, he invited a very important guest from our own Clarksville, TN. We all know that any person who signs up for the armed services already exhibits an extraordinary character.

The sacrifice that they, and their families, make to serve our country is beyond measure. Through their commitment to protecting our nation, we are forever in their debt. America is the greatest country on earth, but it can only remain so because of the selfless acts of those who serve in our military.

U.S. Congress

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Marsha Blackburn disappointed in harmful tariff decision on U.S. residential washing machines:

“While I support trade policies that strengthen American manufacturing and will put this nation on a fair playing field internationally, I am disappointed in the overly harsh ruling of Section 201 tariff remedies against imports of residential washing machines.

Marsha Blackburn: This Week From Washington – January 27th, 2018

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – As many of you know, last Friday at midnight, the government shut down. The Democrats in the Senate showed their constituents, and every American, that they chose to forgo funding for our military, our elderly, and our children in order to fulfill their political agenda.

And if you remember, this was an agenda that President Trump was very clear on. The President told the Democrats that if they wanted a DACA deal, then they had to come to the negotiation table. Once there was funding for the border wall, an end to chain migration, and an end of the visa lottery system, President Trump would allow a DACA deal.
