My Two Cents: Thanksgiving

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I find that the older I get, the more I appreciate where I am in life.

Be Thankful - Happy Thanksgiving «Read the rest of this article»

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.
