7th District, speak out!!!

Letter to the Editor in day's Tennessean...

Blackburn wouldn’t stand up for children

To the Editor:

When President Bush vetoed health care for millions of children, Rep. Marsha Blackburn had a choice — stand with President Bush or stand up for kids back home. She chose Bush, and was one of just a few votes blocking Congress from overriding Bush’s veto.

As a result, millions of kids and their families could suffer. This isn’t a Democratic or Republican issue. A recent CBS poll shows that eight out of every 10 Americans support the kids’ health-care bill passed by the Democratic Congress — including an overwhelming majority of Republican voters!

Why is Marsha Blackburn so out of touch? When are the voters of the 7th Congressional District going to stand up and say enough is enough?
