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.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Adventure Of A Lifetime

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I met Rob Leunberger during a recent memorial run he organized for a friend who tragically lost his life on the back of his motorcycle.  You can read that story here.

As I joined the group for the day’s ride, I was on the outside looking in.  I didn’t know most of  those who had gathered to honor their friend, on this scorching hot summer day. 

At the end of the day though, I had witnessed an amazing friendship among men and women, brought together by a motorcycle, with a love for one another that was special.  They would do ANYTHING for each other!
