Marsha Blackburn: This Week From Washington – February 5th, 2018

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

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.

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.

My Two Cents: The NFL

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – We’re a little over a week from the NFL’s premier event, the Super Bowl.  It’s been a tumultuous year for the sports league that has its own day of the week.

The controversy started with former San Francisco Giant quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Other players started doing the same thing.  They each gave their reasons for the protest, but the insult was not taken lightly by fans.

Written by Jen Rae Wang

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – United States President Donald Trump is sending astronauts back to the Moon.

The president Monday signed at the White House Space Policy Directive 1, a change in national space policy that provides for a U.S.-led, integrated program with private sector partners for a human return to the Moon, followed by missions to Mars and beyond.

The policy calls for the NASA administrator to “lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the solar system and to bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities.”

Representative Marsha Blackburn supports roll back of Net Neutrality

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted Thursday to roll back Obama-era internet regulations called “net neutrality.” I fully support FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s decision on this. Let me tell you why.

There’s a lot of confusion about the term “net-neutrality,” which leads consumers to believe that before 2015 it was difficult to have free and fair access to the internet. This is not the case. Were you able to access the internet before 2015? Could you access websites for free? The answer is most likely yes. FCC regulations were not needed then, and they aren’t needed now. But there are some big internet issues we need to solve.

Marsha Blackburn: This Week From Washington – July 23rd, 2017

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – As the stories in the media on health care seemingly change from day to day, one thing remains clear: Americans deserve action. We must act. In addition to speaking with many of you, I spoke on a number of shows this week about the need to get something done on health care and what the Senate can do to make some progress on this issue.

The Senate is now considering a bill that has previously passed to repeal Obamacare with a two-year delay to allow Congress the time to craft and debate legislation that truly addresses the root problems of our high health care costs.

Tennessee State Representative - District 68Nashville, TN – The first session of the 110th Tennessee General Assembly adjourned on May 10th, 2017, after passing major legislation that will benefit Tennesseans for generations to come. This is Part 2 of a 12 Part report.
