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.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

President Donald Trump Vetos National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – I am returning, without my approval, H.R. 6395, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (the “Act”). My Administration recognizes the importance of the Act to our national security.

Unfortunately, the Act fails to include critical national security measures, includes provisions that fail to respect our veterans and our military’s history, and contradicts efforts by my Administration to put America first in our national security and foreign policy actions. It is a “gift” to China and Russia.

Terrorists are Losing, Peace is Breaking Out

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, Americans watched in horror as ISIS gained power and territory in the Middle East and radical Islamist terrorists killed 14 Americans on U.S. soil in San Bernardino, California.
 
Today, the ISIS caliphate is destroyed. Terrorist leaders Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Qasem Soleimani are dead. And instead of sending American troops to fight in endless wars or giving cash to terrorist sponsors in Iran, the United States is securing peace deals with our real allies across the Middle East, including Israel.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Fighting for Our Military

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – As members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, my colleagues and I are hard at work on this year’s national defense authorization legislation. 

I’m focused on encouraging American innovation and creating high-skilled job opportunities for the Volunteer State, fighting for Tennessee’s military community, and confronting 21st century threats.

If the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has made one thing clear, it’s that we can no longer rely on communist China.

Under President Donald Trump, America is Booming

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “Our country has never done better than it is doing right now,” President Donald Trump said this morning. He’s right—and the numbers prove it.
 
While one party mourns the death of its political stunt, here is the news from the rest of America.

Americans’ economic optimism just hit a record 44-year high—better than under Presidents Reagan, Clinton, or Obama. That confidence is buoyed by an unemployment rate near 50-year lows, a record stock market, and plummeting income inequality as blue-collar wage gains outpace white-collar ones.
