Telehealth Revolution Is Here to Stay

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “In just weeks, Americans went from using telehealth—carrying out medical appointments over virtual connections rather than in person—in a relatively narrow set of circumstances to making it one of the most common ways to receive healthcare,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar writes in USA Today.
 
With outdated regulatory hurdles cleared, the telehealth revolution will be “a key part of President Donald Trump’s healthcare vision: an affordable, personalized system that puts you in control, provides peace of mind and treats you like a human being, not a number.”

Marsha Blackburn: Here’s how to Stop Cancel-Culture Mob, Violent Anarchists from remaking our Country

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – I’ve always said that our goals inform the paths we choose. You can tell a lot about a person—or, a political movement—by how they choose to persuade the masses.

If you’re looking for a perfect example of the latter, look no further than Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of Shuford’s Smokehouse.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

The new law gives the biggest funding boost to the United States’ 419 national parks in half a century. The legislation incudes the “Restore Our Parks Act” that Alexander first introduced in 2018 and permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which President Ronald Reagan’s Commission on Americans Outdoors recommended in 1985 when Alexander was its chairman.
