Marsha Blackburn Report: Calling Out Biden’s Anti-Family Agenda

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – President Joe Biden and D.C. politicians want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars to incentivize dependency on the federal government. To accomplish this, they will take even more money out of Tennesseans’ hard-earned paychecks.

The so-called ‘American Families Plan’ that Joe Biden’s team created for him will replace community with collectivism. Each program is just one more avenue for the government to gain a foothold into our homes. I will not stand by while Joe Biden and Kamala Harris attempt to gain control over Tennessee families.

Marsha Blackburn: Do You Want to Pay for Abortions?

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – When the shutdowns began last March, our health care facilities quickly became overwhelmed with COVID-19 Coronavirus patients. Local hospitals and clinics canceled routine appointments and treatment visits to accommodate the unprecedented strain on the system.

With much of the Volunteer State reopening, our local clinics are facing a new challenge—the Joe Biden administration’s plan to divert critical health care funding in order to pay for abortions.

Chairman Lamar Alexander: Donald Trump Administration Price Transparency Rule Will Protect Patients, Contain Costs

 

U.S. SenateMaryville, TN – Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today said the Trump Administration’s final rule requiring health insurers to disclose price and out-of-pocket costs information will protect patients and contain costs, adding that Congress should do its part by passing the bipartisan, bicameral Lower Health Care Costs Act.

“You can’t lower your health care costs until you know what your health care costs,” Alexander said. “The Senate health committee and two House committees agree on provisions to increase transparency, consistent with today’s action by the Trump Administration which will help patients have a clearer understanding of what their health care costs by requiring health insurers to disclose greater pricing information.”

President Donald Trump unveils roadmap to stop Veteran Suicide

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – More than 6,000 veterans die by suicide each year, taking their own lives at a rate one-and-a-half times that of other Americans. Female veterans are at an even higher risk, with a suicide rate of more than twice that of other Americans.
 
From 2005 to 2016, the veteran suicide rate rose by an alarming 26 percent. In the past, these heroes were too often overlooked by our leaders, who sent our troops to fight in foreign lands without taking care of them once they returned home.
