Questions for Republican Members of Congress over the April Recess

Nashville, Tenn. (April 12, 2017)-

As the April congressional recess begins, there are some important questions that the Tennessee delegation needs to answer:

SUPREME COURT

What about Judge Gorsuch was so much different than Judge Garland that Senator Corker and Alexander were willing to first break 230 years of precedent to deny Garland a hearing and then do something completely unprecedented and change the rules of the senate to confirm Gorsuch?

HEALTH CARE

Since Obamacare has not been repealed, should Tennessee should continue to lose $2.5 million per day in revenues and leave 280,000 people uninsured by not expanding Medicaid?

What is the Republican plan to cover the over 280,000 uninsured people in Tennessee?

RUSSIA

The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has stepped down and is now being investigated for ethics violations. Don’t Tennesseans deserve an independent investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election?

SYRIA

In 2013, Reps Black, Blackburn, Fleischmann, Duncan and Roe all signed a letter to President Obama urging him to go to congress for authorization to use force in Syria. Does this also apply to President Trump?
