Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – August 4th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Washington’s spending habit is counterproductive. Common sense tells us, don’t treat taxpayer dollars like Monopoly money, and that’s why on Thursday, I voted against bloated, inefficient and wasteful federal spending.

Tennesseans rightly worry that the closure of rural hospitals will leave them without access to health care. My Rural Health Agenda comes directly at the request of small town mayors and community leaders, and fills gaps left by hospital closures. It ensures quality care is accessible closer to home for rural Tennesseans by targeting areas that need improvement.

Blackburn Report: Senator Marsha Blackburn visits Border with Vice President Mike Pence

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We continue to hear about the crisis at our southern border. As the situation becomes more and more dire, it is important that both sides of the aisle work together on solving this issue.

On Friday, the Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee saw firsthand the work being done to secure our border. We spoke with border patrol officers, toured the McAllen Border Patrol Station, and spoke with detained migrants. What the cartels are telling them in Central America, or any of the other 60 countries where individuals have arrived from, is not what happens when they arrive on U.S. soil.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) spoke on the Senate floor about protecting our country’s freedom for Independence Day.

Remarks as Prepared.

Thank you, Mister President.

In 1826, a very old and feeble John Adams received a group of Quincy, Massachusetts town leaders who were seeking his help in planning an anniversary celebration of the Declaration of Independence. They wanted Adams to pen a toast to be read at the event. Imagine their surprise when Adams left them with just two words:
