Tanner helps lead Bill to boost U.S. Manufacturing Jobs

 

Washington, DC. – U.S. Rep. John Tanner helped the House of Representatives overcome a partisan block to pass legislation boosting U.S. manufacturing jobs.

The “U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act of 2010” (HR 4380) contains hundreds of tariff suspensions and reductions to help American companies grow, stay competitive and support further job creation. The bill was initially opposed by House Republican leaders but eventually passed the House overwhelmingly by a vote of 378-43.

“Passage of this bill is one more step toward economic recovery and private-sector job growth in America,” Tanner said. “Working families in America will be grateful that a substantial majority of Members of this House rose above political rhetoric to do the right thing to save and create jobs in Tennessee and across our country.” «Read the rest of this article»

Health Care reform means improved coverage for Tennesseans

 

The debate over healthcare reform started with over-heated town hall meetings, many punctuated with loud, angry outbursts . It ended with an ugly confrontation between Tea Party protesters and several Members of Congress on the west front of the US Capitol. In the middle was an often bitter discussion over the future health of our nation.

Late Sunday (March 21st, 2010), The US House of Representatives by a narrow vote (219-212) passed sweeping healthcare reform legislation. Far from perfect, it is a major step towards fixing our broken healthcare system. The new law will greatly alter our system of care and provide coverage to millions of uninsured Americans. It seems destined to sit alongside the historic 1965 Medicare program in both its meaning and scope. «Read the rest of this article»
