U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week House Democrats gathered to announce their intention to begin formal impeachment inquiries against President Donald Trump. The announcement was the culmination of a three-year witch hunt that started with a grudge they’ve held against the president since their chosen candidate failed to win the 2016 election.

Caring For Our Veterans: Our brave men and women risked their lives to protect this nation and deserve the care and support necessary to address the long-term health effects from exposure to harmful environments, such as burn pits.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

U.S. house of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – On the night of Friday, September 27th, 2019, U.S. Representative Mark Green led the bipartisan fight to fix an inadequate bill that would advance modern healthcare technology for illegal aliens before that same technology is made available for America’s veterans.

In its current form, H.R. 3525 would require the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to develop an interoperable electronic health records system for illegal immigrants in just 90 days—while the same information technology will not be available for our Nation’s military heroes at all Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities until September 2027.
