Senator Marsha Blackburn Urges FDA to Respond to Critical Drug Shortages

 

U.S. SenateNashville, TN – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) is urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to address shortages of drugs used to treat patients with lupus. Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, which are used to treat autoimmune diseases like lupus, are currently being used as treatment for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“We should not be facing a choice between treating lupus and COVID-19,” said Senator Blackburn. “We have to fix our U.S. drug supply problem right now. All Americans should be able to trust that they will not be the population left behind while we identify treatment for COVID-19.”

Marsha Blackburn: China’s Influence on the American People’s Medicine Cabinet

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The past few weeks of self-quarantining, misinformation and confusion have tried the patience of the American people. Every day, I field questions about what the U.S. Senate is doing to combat the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as well as what steps families should take to protect themselves.

Even before the news of closed restaurants and canceled festivals hit the timeline, Americans were alert to the possibility—perhaps for the first time in their lives—of want. Articles expressing doubt over the country’s healthcare system’s capacity to treat an influx of coronavirus (COVID-19)-afflicted patients prompted us to ask, what if?

Dodging the Roadkill: What Will It Take?

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – In July of this year, Tennessee joined about 17 other states in implementing a cellphone law.  In the Volunteer state, drivers could face a fine of up to $200.00 for using their cellphone while driving.  Drivers 18 and older will be prohibited from holding or physically supporting a phone while driving.

My “unofficial” observation?  Nothing’s changed.

My brothers in law enforcement tell me that their superiors have told them to just give “warnings” until the general pubic understands the new law.

From 2015 to 2017, Tennessee topped the list for cellphone distracted driving deaths nationwide according to a new study by ValuePenguin of National Highway Traffic Administration data.

One police officer was injured trying to stop one of them and officials are trying to identify them.

In a later report, one of the news outlets managed to get an interview with a young lady in the group, (who was not identified), and she said that their group was a “positive” rally to show young people that there was more to life than just “drugs and guns.”
