Marsha Blackburn Report: Calling Out Wasteful Spending

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – While some politicians are trying to sweep wasteful spending under the rug, I’m calling out the left’s exorbitant wish list. Americans deserve real COVID-19 Coronavirus relief—not more funding for “climate justice” and Planned Parenthood.

As the budget reconciliation process moves over to the Senate, I remain resolved to work against wasteful spending and provide an aid package that benefits the American people.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Advocating for Basic Privacy Safeguards

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Almost every moment of our lives is conducted in the digital sphere, from sending emails to paying rent. Implementing basic privacy safeguards, like allowing users to opt in to the collection of sensitive data, puts Americans in control of their information.

Marsha Blackburn Report: More Unfounded Brett Kavanaugh Claims

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The first time that Democrats used baseless accusations to smear Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last year, a political circus took over the confirmation process. Now that I’m in the Senate, it is my duty to speak out against the dangerous, partisan attacks again being used to threaten the legitimacy of our courts.

Once again, politicians, journalists, and activists are leveraging unfounded criminal allegations against a duly confirmed Supreme Court Justice in an effort to undermine his work, and ultimately, the Court as an institution.

Representative Marsha Blackburn supports roll back of Net Neutrality

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted Thursday to roll back Obama-era internet regulations called “net neutrality.” I fully support FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s decision on this. Let me tell you why.

There’s a lot of confusion about the term “net-neutrality,” which leads consumers to believe that before 2015 it was difficult to have free and fair access to the internet. This is not the case. Were you able to access the internet before 2015? Could you access websites for free? The answer is most likely yes. FCC regulations were not needed then, and they aren’t needed now. But there are some big internet issues we need to solve.

Clarksville, TN –  Congressman Marsha Blackburn has introduced the first Pro-Life bill in the House that would block funding from going to profitable abortion businesses.
