Health Care reform means improved coverage for Tennesseans

 

The debate over healthcare reform started with over-heated town hall meetings, many punctuated with loud, angry outbursts . It ended with an ugly confrontation between Tea Party protesters and several Members of Congress on the west front of the US Capitol. In the middle was an often bitter discussion over the future health of our nation.

Late Sunday (March 21st, 2010), The US House of Representatives by a narrow vote (219-212) passed sweeping healthcare reform legislation. Far from perfect, it is a major step towards fixing our broken healthcare system. The new law will greatly alter our system of care and provide coverage to millions of uninsured Americans. It seems destined to sit alongside the historic 1965 Medicare program in both its meaning and scope. «Read the rest of this article»

 

APSU Professor seeks to challenge Republican Marsha Blackburn for the 7th District

 
Dr. Greg Rabidoux

Dr. Greg Rabidoux

Clarksville-Montgomery County just came out of an interesting election season with last years Kurita vs Barnes State Senate Campaign, and the Obama vs McCain Presidential Race. As such one would expect that the next election cycle would be well, more laid back. Well you can forget that right now. Greg Rabidoux has declared his intent to run for the Democratic nomination to face Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn in the upcoming 2010 elections for the 7th district seat. This promises to be one interesting race.

The initial exchange hints at the future intensity in store for this campaign.

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Marsha Blackburn’s office released this statement:

November 2010 is a long way off. Between now and then, Marsha is focused on an ambitious agenda on behalf of her 7th District constituents.She will gladly defend her record against whomever emerges from the Democratic primary.

This is Dr. Rabidoux’s response:

I appreciate that Marsha Blackburn has already indicated that she will gladly defend her record during this campaign. We welcome her willingness to do so and will provide her with ample opportunities to defend her record. We only hope that she does not choose to defend her record solely through her spokesperson or scripted press releases. The people of the 7th District, especially in these critical economic times deserve to see for themselves, up close and personal, who is best qualified to lead them to the future.
