Rep. Blackburn urges incandescent bulbs as gifts


Tennessee U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn says her family's holiday will be bright. She's filling Christmas stockings with light bulbs. Incandescent, of course. The Brentwood Republican has backed a provision to cut funding for an energy efficiency law scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, effectively ending the manufacture of incandescent light bulbs. The statute requires new bulbs of 100 watts be 27 times more energy efficient. A statement provided to The Tennessean by a Blackburn staffer said the old pear-shaped incandescent bulbs are "scheduled to go away at the end of the ...


Free markets should decide spectrum auction outcomes


America’s tech sector remains unrivaled around the world — a true bright spot in our otherwise stagnant economy. That’s the message I took away from the Consumer Electronics Show last week, where I met some of America’s best and brightest tech leaders and innovators. For this sector to drive U.S.-based prosperity, Congress must pass spectrum reform legislation to end the FCC’s decades-long mismanagement of this vital resource. In short, mobile users need more spectrum. As Nobel Prize-winning economist Ronald Coase first demonstrated more than 50 years ago, the ...


Rep. Marsha Blackburn's 7th Congr.District to leave Shelby


U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn's 7th Congressional District -- which includes Germantown and much of Collierville and Bartlett -- would move out of Shelby and Fayette counties under proposed new redistricting plans released Friday by the Tennessee legislature. In return, the 8th Congressional District now represented by Rep. Stephen Fincher will move much deeper into eastern Shelby County than it currently does, and the Memphis-based 9th Congressional District will extend upward to include the northwestern corner of Shelby County. State House Speaker Beth Harwell said the congressional map ...

Blackburn: Obama Budget Doubles Down on Failed Tax & Spend Policies
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding President Obama's Fiscal Year 2015 Budget proposal. “While millions of Americans struggle to find work in the Obama economy, President Obama is doubling down on his failed tax and spend policies. We have the lowest labor force participation rate in four decades with more people leaving that job market than entering. The President’s proposed budget only exacerbates the reality that this Administration’s policies are squeezing the middle class and stifling economic growth. American taxpayers are tired of Washington bureaucrats repeatedly taking more of their hard-earned money just so this Administration can quench their thirst for higher spending. That is why I continue to fight for real solutions that will reduce regulation, lower taxes, and clear the path for the private sector to create jobs and get our economy going again.”
Marino & Blackburn Commend Justice Department Goal of Fighting the Heroin and Prescription Drug Abuse Crisis; Urge DOJ to Increase Collaboration and Dialogue with Supply Chain Stakeholders
As the prescription drug abuse crisis in America has grown far worse over the last decade, for over two years Representatives Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) and Tom Marino (PA-10) have championed the effort to convince the DEA and other regulators that collaboration and dialogue with stakeholders in the prescription medication supply chain will only lead to better results in the effort to prevent deaths and other tragic outcomes that result from this epidemic. "Opioid addiction is a complex and incredibly challenging societal problem that will not be successfully addressed through simple solutions that fail to address demand and fail to promote cooperation between law enforcement, the medical establishment and legitimate well-intentioned stakeholders in the supply chain.It is only when we acknowledge the complexity of the challenge and work together that our strategy to combat this tragic epidemic will be at its best," Marino stated. "We are all in this tog
Blackburn Continues Efforts to Protect Hard-Working Americans from Unaffordable Obamacare Mandates
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today continued her efforts to protect all hard-working Americans from the unaffordable Obamacare mandates by voting in support of H.R. 4118, the SIMPLE Fairness Act. The legislation approved by the House with bipartisan support would provide the same relief for all Americans that President Obama recently grated for big businesses by eliminating the individual mandate tax penalty under Obamacare for one year. “Rather than admit he is wrong and repeal his destructive healthcare law, the President continues to offer relief to select political friends and companies. He remains unwilling to provide that same relief for all hard-working Americans and their families. It is simply not fair that big banks or businesses don't have to comply with Obamacare this year, but if you are a single mom in Tennessee trying to make ends meet there's no exemption — and you get taxed. That's why I continue to fight in support of solutions like the SI
Blackburn to Obama: Why don’t you scrap the entire thing?
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in response to today's announcement from the Obama Administration that they will extend by two years the amount of time some people will be able to keep health care plans that don't meet the requirements under Obamacare. “Another day, another delay. President Obama, when are you going to admit that your flawed government take-over of healthcare is not working? “While I am glad some people will be able to temporarily keep the plans they want, this decision is just another example that this law is not working. Rather than continuing with your piecemeal deconstruction of the less politically palatable portions of Obamacare, why don’t you scrap the entire thing and work with Congress and the American people to reform those areas which need reform and leave alone what is working well for most people?”
