Creating Solutions for the Rural Health Care Crisis

 

By Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Every parent knows the sinking feeling that hits when your child drops from the monkey bars or when a grandparent can’t get up from a fall. For families in rural areas, that sense of worry is immediately followed by the risk of not getting medical care in time.

Through phone calls with friends and virtual meetings, I hear from Tennesseans in rural areas who were struggling to access health care even before the pandemic. It’s a grim reality that many Americans have to drive hours through remote areas to find emergency medical care. If they make it in time, they find overcrowded facilities filled with the COVID-19 Coronavirus patients urban hospitals are funneling into rural areas.

Marsha Blackburn, Judiciary Committee Members Slam Joe Biden-Induced Border Crisis

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) along with Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee slammed the Joe Biden administration’s self-induced border crisis and are pressing officials for information about how the administration is responding to the crisis amid the ongoing pandemic.

The Senators are demanding information about the extent of the crisis and the government’s response:

“Regardless of what the Biden Administration wants to call this current set of circumstances it has created, this surge in illegal immigration carries significant risks. It also imposes a heavy burden on public resources. Congress and the American people must have additional clarity about how DHS and HHS are addressing it,” the Senators wrote.
