Congressman Duncan Calls for AED Devices in Schools
  Duncan Calls for AED Devices in Schools FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE    CONTACT: Don Walker September 20, 2016    (202) 225-5435                      WASHINGTON – Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) introduced legislation today in the House that would encourage every state in the Country to require Automated External Defibrillators at all schools to aid students suffering cardiac arrests. “Encouraging state legislatures to consider laws requiring the placement of AED’s in schools is very important to ensure all students’ lives are valued. I have read numerous stories all across the Country where a student is placed in danger or loses their life because of limited awareness of and access to AEDs,” Congressman Duncan said. Tennessee and the 16 other states have led the way in emergency preparedness in academic settings by enacting laws that require the device be placed in all schools. In 1998, Congressman Duncan sponsored the Aviation Medical Assi

"How I Was Wrong About ObamaCare" by Dr. Bob Kocher.
  Dr. Bob Kocher, Special Assistant to President Obama for Healthcare and Economic Policy from 2009-2010, writes for the Wall Street Journal... I was wrong. Wrong about an important part of ObamaCare. When I joined the Obama White House to advise the president on health-care policy as the only physician on the National Economic Council, I was deeply committed to developing the best health-care reform we could to expand coverage, improve quality and bring down costs. We worked for months to pass this landmark legislation, and I still count celebrating the passage of the Affordable Care Act with the president one balmy spring night in 2010 as one of my greatest Washington memories. What I got wrong about ObamaCare was how the change in the delivery of health care would, and should, happen. I believed then that the consolidation of doctors into larger physician groups was inevitable and desirable under the ACA. I joined my White House health-care colleagues— Ezekiel Emanuel and Nancy-A
Congressman Duncan's Statement on Scores Given to Congress by the National Parks Action Fund
The National Parks Action Fund is closely affiliated with and in fact was organized by the National Parks Conservation Association. The NPCA is really the parent organization to the National Parks Action Fund; and in fact, the head of the NPCA was at the press conference announcing formation of the National Parks Action Fund. The National Parks Conservation Association, like the Trump Foundation, is a tax-exempt foundation which pays no taxes. While I am sure the NPCA has probably done enough to comply with the letter of the law, they certainly have violated the spirit of the law which prohibits partisan political activities by tax-exempt organizations. To show you how highly partisan they have become, they rated almost every Democrat in the House with an “A” and almost every Republican with an “F.” In fact, 172 out of 188 Democrats got “A’s” and none got “F’s,” while 236 out of 244 Republicans got “F’s.” The National Parks Action Fund cherry-picked only 11 ou
