Marsha Blackburn Report: Leading Relief Efforts After Tennessee Storms

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Confucius Institutes provide communist China with leverage to discreetly influence what college students are taught about topics like Hong Kong and Tiananmen Square and impede freedom of speech on campus. We cannot allow students to be brainwashed by revisionist history.

That’s why I sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) Secretary Miguel Cardona to push for censorship-free alternatives to support Mandarin language and Chinese culture initiatives in the U.S., including those provided by our democratic partner Taiwan. Read more about the letter here.

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.

Marsha Blackburn Proposes Alternative to President Joe Biden’s Infrastructure Plan

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) has introduced legislation proving it is possible to improve our nation’s infrastructure without implementing the largest tax hike in nearly three decades or adding $2 trillion to our federal deficit.

Senator Blackburn introduced the Paving the Way for Rural Communities Act of 2021, alongside Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) and Representative David Kustoff (R-Tenn.), which will make it easier to repair America’s roads and bridges by removing burdensome government regulations that are adversely targeted towards rural areas.

Marsha Blackburn Statement on President Joe Biden’s “Infrastructure” Plan

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan.

“Not even six percent of President Joe Biden’s massive $2 trillion ‘infrastructure’ bill would be used to build roads and bridges,” said Senator Blackburn. “Biden’s plan includes the largest tax hike in nearly three decades, but of course, coastal elites will have their taxes slashed. It will strip Americans’ of their right to work by forcing them to join Democrat-backed unions. This ‘infrastructure’ plan is another Trojan horse for the radical left.”

President Joe Biden’s remarks on American Jobs Plan

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Thank you. (Applause.) (Inaudible) Mike asked me — and I said to Bobby, my good friend — he asked me back there — he said, “Do you ever get nervous?” And I — he said, “Because I got up this morning, made breakfast for my kids. I’ve got to introduce the President.’”

And what I say to you, Mike: You did a heck of a job. But I’d get nervous if I had to get up in the middle of the night, climb up a telephone pole, replace — in the middle of a storm — a connection that knocked out everybody’s electricity, and put a transformer in. That’s what would make me nervous. So what you did was really good. I couldn’t do what you do, pal. I couldn’t do what you do.

President Joe Biden remarks Before Meeting with Senators on Critical Need to Invest in Modern, Sustainable American Infrastructure

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Folks, thanks for coming in. I’m going to be very brief. We’re going to get to it.

We want to talk about infrastructure, and this committee is central to everything that’s going to happen. I’ve been around long enough — and Tom and Jim and all of us — that — it used to be that infrastructure wasn’t a Democrat or Republican issue. There are not many Republican or Democratic roads and bridges, and so on.
