By November 14, 2022November 15th, 2022Sports events

Nashville, TN – Tennessee is proud to be home to more than 400,000 veterans. On Veterans Day, I wanted to thank our brave veterans for all they did to preserve our freedom. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude that we can never fully repay.

As a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, I work to ensure that our veterans have access to the quality care and benefits they deserve. Today and every day, please join me in thanking them for their bravery and sacrifice.


Weekly summary

Throughout my career in Congress, I have fought to ensure that our veterans get everything they need and deserve. This year, I introduced the Veterans Health Care Freedom Act to ensure that our veterans can find and access medical facilities within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) network.

I’m always struggle streamlining the VA community care program to ensure veterans have access to the quality care they need in a timely manner. I also introduced the Strengthening VA Cybersecurity Act to protect veterans’ personal information by strengthening VA cybersecurity systems. Veterans can find an overview of all available resources here on my site or contact my office for additional help.

American households are expected to pay on average $1,359 in order to stay warm this winter due to President Joe Biden’s reckless energy policies. I join my colleagues in taking a stand emission a stern warning to 51 law firms advising clients in practices that undermine the U.S. energy industry through environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives that drive up energy costs and make energy independence impossible.

The Joe Biden Administration war on american energy was bad news for farmers and truckers. At around $5.35 a gallon, diesel prices are about 50% higher this year than last. It puts enormous pressure on the people who put food on our tables.

the imminence diesel crisis will exacerbate supply chain problems and fuel the cost of living crisis. That’s why I worked hard to get rid radical Green New Deal initiatives so that we can reduce energy costs, ease the burden on our farmers and truckers, and make our nation self-sufficient again.
