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.

But buyer beware—the left’s agenda includes everything but a solution for the Volunteer State.
