Email from Senator Lamar Alexander

I receive all emails from my so-called reps. It's really hard to open and read them because of how horrible they are. Everything would be just fine if the Democrats would just step in line. I don't even have the stomach to read Marsha Blackburn's latest screed.

I'll spare you the whole thing and just include the parts illustrating how these monsters are blatantly sowing division. Yes, I write to them, but what I get back is basically a pat on the head.

It's really hard to stay optimistic when I read the spin.


Senate Democrats block largest pay raise for military service members, including those at Fort Campbell, since 2010

This week, Senate Democrats, for their own political reasons, blocked funding for the largest pay increase for our military in 10 years. The legislation would have also set record funding for our 17 national laboratories, which include Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the fifth consecutive year of increased funding for the National Institutes of Health, which researches and develops lifesaving treatments for Tennessee families. Democrats are plunging these departments into uncertainty that almost everyone agrees wastes taxpayer money.

Working to improve health care for Tennesseans

I often suggest Tennesseans look at Washington D.C. like a split screen television. On one side, you have the controversies of the day – Democrat impeachment and the president’s daily tweets. But on the other side, you’ll often see senators working together to achieve results for the American people. That has been the case for the Senate health committee I chair.

To celebrate Halloween, Senate Democrats have come up with a scary fairytale without an ounce of truth

Democrats are trying to trick Americans into thinking that giving states the ability to lower health insurance premiums could somehow undermine protections for pre-existing conditions, something federal law does not permit. The Trump administration has issued guidance that would allow states to use innovation to lower the cost of health insurance premiums. Democrats this week attempted to block state’s ability to innovate. Democrats should allow states to use the flexibility created by Obamacare to lower premiums and help millions of Americans have access to more affordable health insurance.

5. Well, I remind him very often

what a liar this president is. But I am very much in the minority around here. They don't really want the truth. They want the Democrats to disappear. And the people being hurt the most by this administration are the ones who vote for all this shit.

2. Him on the Senate health committee is a joke

TN still refuses to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, even as the state tries to institute block grants which will further reduce healthcare funding and rural hospitals in the state are closing at an alarming rate. HOW DARE YOU talk about the healthcare in this state Senator!!!

3. They are such fakes.

Two of our hospitals have just been forced to consolidate. While they haven't actually closed yet, only one has an emergency room now. So people will have to drive past the hospital close to them and drive across town for emergency care. And everyone around here blames Obamacare.

4. 600,000 - 1 million Americans

That was the cost of bringing Tennessee back into the Union.

Was it worth it?

8. these are 'my' senators

I wrote both of them....

lamar didn't think it was right asking foreign entities to interfere in our elections but it wasn't impeachable.

marsha whined and bitched about procedure....no vote...now she's got her vote and i'm sure she's whining about something else.

wasted time i will never retrieve
