Representative Mark Green Votes NO on Democrats’ Partisan Prescription Drug Legislation

 

U.S. house of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – On Thursday, December 12th, 2019, U.S. Representative Mark Green voted against the radically partisan prescription drug legislation introduced by House Democrats, H.R. 3.

H.R. 3 would ensure more Washington control, cripple the development of new cures and treatments, and has no chance of being signed into law by President Donald Trump.

Green said, “The President’s Council of Economic Advisers found that H.R. 3 could prevent 100 new cures from coming to market and lower Americans’ life expectancy by four months. That’s why I voted no on this partisan prescription drug plan.”

NASA looks at returning to Venus

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Sue Smrekar really wants to go back to Venus. In her office at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, the planetary scientist displays a 30-year-old image of Venus’ surface taken by the Magellan spacecraft, a reminder of how much time has passed since an American mission orbited the planet.

The image reveals a hellish landscape: a young surface with more volcanoes than any other body in the solar system, gigantic rifts, towering mountain belts and temperatures hot enough to melt lead.

President Donald Trump is putting Parents Back in Charge

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Conservatives know that strong families are what make America thrive. They build up our neighborhoods, sustain our communities, pass down our values, and create a brighter future for every American citizen.

Yet for years, Washington has treated families as an afterthought—at best—and an outright barrier to “progress” at worst. U.S. President Donald J. Trump knows that bureaucrats shouldn’t have the final say in raising our kids. So from child care to school choice to paid family leave, the Trump Administration is putting parents back in control.
