Marsha Blackburn Speaks Out Against Democrats’ Federal Takeover of Election Laws

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) along with 13 other Republican colleagues to oppose the Democrats’ federal takeover of our election laws.

The Left is Pushing for Government-Sponsored Cheating

“[Tennesseans] want to preserve: one person, one vote and the integrity of the electoral system. S.1 and all of the different versions of S.1, in essence, are pieces of legislation that will make it literally easier to cheat. They will be useful ways to cheat in an election.”

Marsha Blackburn: For Tennesseans, Military Appreciation Starts at Home

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This past weekend marked Memorial Day and the end of Military Appreciation Month. But here in Tennessee, showing our gratitude to our service members and their families isn’t something we do just once a year. It’s part of our way of life. 

Last week, President Joe Biden unveiled his 2022 budget request, which is a stark shift away from his usual taxpayer-funded spending sprees. While he’s willing to dole out trillions for energy-efficient cars and blue state bailouts, his priorities sideline much-needed defense spending.

Senator Marsha Blackburn says Tennesseans Can’t Afford Joe Biden’s Perfect Storm

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The once-rummaged shelves at grocery stores are full once more, but for parents stocking up on snacks and summer cookout supplies, something still looks wrong. Prices are on the rise. 

Last week, a few thousand residents from West Tennessee joined my tele-town hall to voice their concerns about rising prices at the store, at the pump, and even further up the supply chain. Mark, who owns a small machine shop, told me, “Steel prices and wood prices are just going through the roof.”

Marsha Blackburn says President Joe Biden Can Not Ignore the Signs

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
United States Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We’ve all seen it. Two words written in bright red letters, posted at the front of nearly every hardware store, grocer, or boutique in town: “HELP WANTED.” While some in the White House want to pass off the current labor shortage as an anomaly, Tennesseans know better. We are in the midst of a labor crisis. 

April’s jobs report revealed that the forces driving our economy are coming to a screeching halt. Job growth expectations fell drastically short, and unemployment rates climbed above six percent.

Marsha Blackburn: The Fight for Election Integrity

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – If you liked the chaos of the pandemic election, you’re going to love the left’s new effort to complicate voting in America. Despite its innocuous name, the For the People Act, known in the Senate as “S.1,” is a harbinger of anything but productive election reform.

It is a federal takeover of the electoral process. Rather than addressing Americans’ genuine concerns about never-ending vote counts, electioneering, and voter fraud, S.1 would upend the traditional voting system and turn every Election Day into election month, opening the door to uncertainty, taxpayer-funded campaigns, and speech restrictions.

Marsha Blackburn says Joe Biden’s “Infrastructure” Agenda Is a Wishlist, Not a Solution

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – After a year of devastating tornadoes that ripped through neighborhoods and flash floods that left roads and bridges underwater, Tennesseans are no strangers to deteriorating infrastructure.

Even as many parents and workers are still navigating floodwaters to find reliable paths to school and work, Democrats in Washington have proposed a sweeping infrastructure plan that promises to overhaul nearly every aspect of American transportation. But buyer beware—the left’s agenda includes everything but a solution for the Volunteer State.

House Democrats Reject Representative Mark Green’s Common-Sense Border Security Measures

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green has offered two amendments to House Democrats’ amnesty bill that were rejected out of hand during markup. Green’s first amendment would have ensured that criminals, gang members, and other aliens who are convicted of 1 felony or 2 or more misdemeanors would not be allowed to stay in the United States.

Green’s second amendment would have preserved President Trump’s border wall and blocked the Joe Biden Administration from rolling back the progress President Donald Trump made in securing our southern border.
