FTC Dismisses House Republicans Request for Clinton Foundation Investigation

2017/08/08

In July 2016, Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) was joined by sixty-four of her colleagues in sending a letter to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requesting an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. In her letter, Blackburn cited unresolved media reports and recently discovered information about the Foundation’s initial tax exempt filings that portray a lawless “Pay to Play” enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years. To read the full letter, click HERE.

Congressman Blackburn received a response on August 5th from FTC Chairwoman Ramirez dismissing the claims and stating in part, “The concerns you raise appear to fall outside of the Commission’s authority, which encompasses neither public corruption nor tax laws…In addition, the Commission generally lacks jurisdiction over non-profit entities under the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. § 44, though we can take action against unfair or deceptive practices, such as misrepresentations to donors by a ‘sham charity,’ when we can establish that the entity claiming to be a charity is in fact operation for its own profit or that of its members.”  

In response, Blackburn states, “The FTC’s response is inadequate. The lack of transparency by the Clinton Foundation raises issues of deception and false claims. This is an issue of fairness and accountability that needs to be addressed.

“The FTC’s own website encourages the public to review the trustworthiness of charities using tools such as Charity Navigator. Incredibly, Charity Navigator had the Foundation on a ‘Watch List’ until December 2015 and is unable to rate the Foundation because of its ‘atypical business model.’ The Better Business Bureau determined in 2013 that the Foundation did not meet ‘its transparency and accountability requirements.’ Media reports advised that only ‘15% of monies spent went towards direct program expenditures’ at the Foundation in 2013. When a charity operates as a criminal enterprise it is on its face a ‘sham charity.’ The Clinton Foundation’s practices are blatantly deceptive. These allegations are very serious and should be thoroughly vetted,” Blackburn said.

U.S. Copyright Office Confirms Set-Top Box Rule Violates and Degrades Existing Law

2016/08/04

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement after receiving U.S. Copyright Office analysis regarding the copyright policy implications of the Federal Communications Commission’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the matter of Expanding Consumer’s Video Navigation Choices, Commercial Availability of Navigation Devices, also known as the set-top-box proposal. The Copyright Office analysis responds to a bipartisan request from Representatives Blackburn (R-TN), Butterfield (D-NC), Collins (R-GA) and Deutsch (D-CA) for the Copyright Office’s comment issued on July 15, and maintains that the NPRM would detrimentally impact copyright owners and consumers by compelling transmission of copyright protected content without programmers' consent.  
 
“We appreciate the Copyright Office’s thorough, thoughtful and timely response to our request for a written assessment of the potential copyright implications of the FCC’s pending set-top-box proposal. The Copyright Office’s written analysis makes clear that the FCC’s set-top proposal conflicts with established copyright law and policy, and would negatively impact content owners and consumers. We asked the Copyright Office to put its analysis in writing so that Congress and all interested parties might benefit from the expertise of the Copyright Office, an expertise that Chairman Wheeler himself recognized earlier this year in testimony before Congress and through requests for informal Copyright Office briefings for Commission staff. It should now be clear that any steps to promote set-top competition, whether by regulators or the private sector, and whether relying on alternative devices or applications, must not compel transmission of copyright protected content without programmers' consent,” Blackburn said.

The Copyright Office analysis is consistent with concerns expressed by a growing body of stakeholders, including 180 members of Congress, over the FCC’s proposal and believe the FCC should reconsider its approach.

Bi-Partisan Representatives Applaud CMS’ Proposed 90-Day Reporting Period

2016/07/11

Representatives Ellmers (R-NC), Blackburn (R-TN), Rush (D-IL) and Matsui (D-CA) issued the below statements after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the proposed rule to reinstate a 90-day electronic health record (EHR) reporting period for physicians and hospitals under the Meaningful Use (MU) Program.

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-07)

“This administration has constantly failed to offer patients, and the provider community, with the resources necessary in order to provide quality care. Providers and physicians in my district continue to tell me that CMS’ Meaningful Use criteria is simply that – meaningless. This legislation will allow flexibility with a 90-day reporting period and will give providers the opportunity to avoid harmful, bureaucratic penalties that drive up the costs of healthcare for all.”

Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (NC-02)

“I am pleased to see the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) propose a reduction in the reporting requirements for the Meaningful Use (MU) program to 90 days, which has remained a top priority of mine. Most recently, my colleagues and I addressed this issue with the MU program through our recent introduction of the Flexibility in Electronic Health Record (EHR) Reporting Act.”

“This proposed 90-day reporting period will deliver more flexibility to hospitals and doctors that are struggling to provide adequate health care due to a burdensome regulatory environment. Although, I believe there is still a great deal to be done with this program, I applaud CMS for a step in the right direction.”


Congresswoman Doris Matsui (CA-06)

“I introduced HR 5001, the Flexibility in Electronic Health Record (EHR) Reporting Act, with my colleagues because we recognize the critical role of technology as we transition to a system of value-based care across the country.  Providers need the flexibility to incorporate technology, such as electronic health records and population health data analytics, into our healthcare ecosystem. I am pleased that CMS has incorporated our bipartisan, bicameral recommendation to extend the 90-day reporting period for the meaningful use program to the 2016 reporting year.”

Congressman Bobby L. Rush (IL-01)

“This much needed 90-day reporting period will allow the flexibility for hospitals and critical access hospitals in my district to better serve their patients.”

Background:

Under stringent mandates in place under the Meaningful Use (MU) program providers were penalized for not meeting burdensome electronic health record (EHR) reporting requirements. In response to concerns, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed the implementation of a 90-day EHR reporting period. This shortened reporting period would be an important first step in addressing the many challenges faced by doctors, hospitals and other medical providers due to excessive regulations. 

In April, members of the U.S. House of Representatives united to introduce H.R. 5001 – the Flexibility in Electronic Health Record (EHR) Reporting Act – which called for a 90-day reporting period. 

By adjusting the timeline, providers would have the option to choose any three-month quarter for the EHR reporting period in 2016 to qualify for Meaningful Use. The additional time and flexibility afforded by these modifications will help hundreds of thousands of providers to meet requirements in an effective and safe manner.  This CMS proposal will reinforce investments made to date and will ensure continued momentum towards the goals of the Meaningful Use Program, including enhanced care coordination and interoperability.  Read More

Blackburn Works to Reform Mental Health Care System

2016/07/06

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Vice Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, today released the following statement after House passage of the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2015 (H.R. 2646), the most significant reform to our nation’s mental health programs in decades.  

“While one in five Americans will face mental illness, the current state of mental health care in our country has left many behind. Four million Americans with serious mental illness receive no treatment at all. After several years of working on this legislation with my colleague Congressman Tim Murphy, this is a big step towards improving the lives of millions of Americans suffering from mental illness.

“This legislation will fix the shortage of beds in our mental health facilities, expand the mental health workforce, empower parents and caregivers and help fund evidence-based care. Furthermore, it prioritizes suicide prevention and will authorize the Suicide Prevention Hotline for the very first time. It’s past time those suffering receive treatment before tragedy,” Blackburn said.

“This historic vote on H.R. 2646 begins a new dawn of hope for families in mental health crisis,” said Congressman Murphy. “Congresswoman Blackburn’s leadership was instrumental in ending the era of stigma and delivering treatment before tragedy.”

Blackburn Introduces Plan Verification and Fairness Act

2016/06/29

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today introduced H.R. 5589, the Plan Verification and Fairness Act, legislation that would ensure proper verification is required prior to receiving healthcare coverage under exchange special enrollment periods (SEPs). Under current law, individuals aren’t required to prove that they qualify for these special enrollment periods (SEPs) before the plan takes effect, leading to higher costs for patients playing by the rules and risk imbalance within exchange markets. 
 
“Special enrollment periods have been abused, giving individuals presumptive eligibility instead of verified eligibility. Under Obamacare, a growing number of individuals have been signing up for health insurance under SEPs only to drop their coverage once they receive the needed medical services. We cannot continue to let this pattern go unchecked as it is driving up the cost of healthcare for all Americans. Our solution, The Plan Verification and Fairness Act, is a narrow, practical way that we can increase transparency within a broken system, save taxpayer dollars immediately and lower the cost of health insurance across the board,” Blackburn said.    Read More

Blackburn Applauds United States v. Texas Decision

2016/06/23

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in United States v. Texas, which upholds the lower court’s decision that the president’s use of executive action to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants is unlawful:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision proves that Congress should pass and the President should sign H.R. 5272, the Blackburn-Cruz DACA language. 

“For years I have fought to pass legislation to end the DACA program. This is a win for the Constitution and for the American people. President Obama’s use of a pen and phone to rewrite immigration laws from the oval office to implement executive amnesty was lawless from day one. SCOTUS has sent King Obama a powerful message,” Blackburn said. 

Background

As part of the Department of Homeland Security Funding bill last year, the House approved, by a vote of 218-209, Congressman Blackburn’s proposal to freeze the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The House first approved her legislation, H.R. 5272, which would also prevent President Obama from taking future executive actions to expand amnesty for illegal aliens, on August 1, 2014 by a vote of 216-192.

On January 19, the Supreme Court agrees to hear United States v. Texas, but adds its own question for the parties to consider: Did the president’s actions violate his constitutional duty to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed”?

On March 1, Speaker Ryan announces that he will ask the House, as an institution uniquely qualified to answer the Court’s question, to vote on a resolution authorizing him to file a brief defending Article I: “The president is not permitted to write law—only Congress is.” 

On March 17, the House adopts H. Res. 639, authorizing Speaker Ryan to file a brief. Speaking on the floor shortly before the vote, Ryan says, “Members who are making immigration policy arguments are missing the entire point here. This comes down to a much more fundamental question. It is about the integrity of our Constitution.”

On April 4, the House files its brief, setting forth why Congress—and only Congress—is empowered to write the laws.

On April 8, the Supreme Court grants the House’s request for 15 minutes of time during oral arguments. Erin Murphy, partner at Bancroft, PLLC will argue on behalf of the House, which is being represented pro bono in this matter.

On April 18, the House of Representatives presented its oral argument to the Supreme Court. Read More

Blackburn Provisions Included in House GOP Obamacare Replacement

2016/06/22

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today released the following statement in response to the reveal of the House Republican’s Obamacare replacement: 
 
“Two provisions I have authored were secured in the House GOP Obamacare replacement; my across-state-lines provision, H.R. 543, and expanding the use of health savings accounts, H.R. 4090. By allowing consumers to purchase insurance across-state-lines, we are empowering them with more choices and a more competitive environment that will lower the price of healthcare policies. Across-state-lines purchasing along with expanding the use of health savings accounts will put patients back in the driver’s seat and allow them to choose the plan that best fits them. Patients will no longer face the one-size-fits-all failed policies of Obamacare. 
 
“We’ve heard time and time again from constituents who tell us their insurance policies are simply too expensive to use. What we’ve learned through Obamacare is that if you can’t afford your co-pay, deductible, or premium your insurance card is worthless. Republicans have been listening and together we are presenting a solution to the American people. Our plan begins with the end in mind – access to affordable health care for all Americans,” Blackburn said.

Blackburn Works to Fund Our Military, Fort Campbell

2016/06/17

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) applauded passage of H.R. 5293—the Department of Defense Appropriations Act for FY 2017. 

“As our nation faces unprecedented threats at home and abroad, we must ensure our military men and women have the necessary funding for mission success. The Department of Defense Apportions Act prioritizes military training and readiness while also meeting the needs of our troops at home by funding a 2.1% pay raise, $450 million for medical facility upgrades, $407 million for medical research and $296 million for sexual assault prevention and response. 

“The recent terrorist attack in Orlando is a grim reminder that the world we live in is not inherently safe and we must have the personnel and capabilities to respond and protect our national interests. Soldiers from Ft. Campbell are always tasked with responding to threats to our security around the globe. We would be putting their lives in increased danger by reducing their numerical strength and not providing them with the training they need. That is why this legislation is so critically important,” Blackburn said.

House Takes Action to Combat Radical Islamic Extremism

2016/06/15

Though President Obama can’t so much as utter the words “radical Islamic extremism,” the House has been acting to combat radicalization in America and to enhance counterterrorism efforts.

Last week, House Republicans unveiled a plan to keep Americans safe. This proposal includes more than 67 detailed policy recommendations, including several specifically focused on defeating radical Islamic terrorism at home and abroad. It discusses the importance of countering extremist ideology by amplifying countervailing views from former radicals and the need to push back against the surge of online radicalization. It also calls on the president to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS.

In addition, below is the list of national security bills that have passed the House this Congress.

Bills to Address Terrorist Radicalization in America 

HR 4401 – Amplifying Local Efforts to Root out Terror (ALERT) Act:  “Scales-up” efforts to counter radicalization and terrorist recruitment nationwide by allowing the government to better use existing fusion centers to reach out to communities (Rep. Loudermilk) – Passed by voice vote

HR 4820 – Combating Terrorist Recruitment Act:  Requires DHS to use the testimonials of former extremists to fight back against terrorist recruiting of Americans (Rep. Fleischmann) – Passed 322-79

HR 4407 – Counterterrorism Advisory Board Act:  Establishes the central counterterrorism decision making body at DHS and sets the procedures for issuing terrorism alerts (Rep. Katko) – Passed 389-5

Other Counterterrorism Bills 

HR 4239 – Tracking Foreign Fighters in Terrorist Safe Havens Act:  Increases intelligence community focus on foreign fighter travel to/from emerging terrorist safe havens (Rep. LoBiondo) – Passed 423-0

HR 4408 – National Strategy to Combat Terrorist Travel Act:  Requires a U.S. national strategy on combating terrorist travel—for the first time in a decade—and requires future administrations to put forward regular action plans for fixing U.S. vulnerabilities to terrorist infiltration (Rep. Katko) – Passed 392-0

HR 4402 – Foreign Fighter Review Act:  Requires top-to-bottom Administration review of instances where Americans became foreign fighters; requirement to identify and close security gaps (Rep. Hurd) – Passed 397-0

HR 4314 – Counterterrorism Screening and Assistance Act:  Quickly equips U.S. allies and high-risk countries with key counterterrorism tools (e.g. watchlisting/screening) for stopping terrorist travel and allows Administration to suspend foreign aid to countries who don’t close security gaps (Rep. Zeldin) – Passed 371-2

HR 4403 – Enhancing Overseas Traveler Vetting Act:  Authorizes DHS and State to develop and provide new watchlisting/screening technologies to foreign governments (Rep. Hurd) – Passed by voice vote

HR 4240 – No Fly for Foreign Fighters Act:  Requires comprehensive review of the terror watchlist to ensure past weaknesses have been fixed and to identify other vulnerabilities. (Rep. Jackson-Lee) – Passed by voice vote

Additionally, the terrorist attack in Orlando has called into question the vetting process. The FBI twice investigated the Orlando shooter. This reveals vetting is nearly impossible and begs the question of how the government can honestly say it’s adequately vetting Syrian refugees. Our openness to refugees” is not how we will defeat the Islamic State (ISIS). That is delusional. This is why I filed H.R. 4218 last December to suspend the admission of refugees to the United States.

HR 4218 - To suspend the admission to the United States of refugees, and for other purposes: Provides that no funding shall be made available for refugee resettlement operations until the following four conditions are met: 1. Congress passes a joint resolution approving the President’s refugee resettlement plan; 2. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) provides a report to Congress scoring the long term cost of any refugee resettlement proposal; 3. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) submits a report identifying terrorist and criminal activity of refugees admitted into the U.S. since 2001; and 4. President Obama submits a report to Congress of the prior year’s cost of admitting refugees and proposes offsetting spending cuts to pay for his resettlement agenda.

Growing up, Marsha Blackburn learned that the promise of our nation depends on each generation of Americans working hard to leave the country a better place than they found it. As a small business woman, author, mother, grandmother, and Member of Congress, Marsha Blackburn has dedicated her service to the sacred obligation all citizens have to their communities: making Tennessee and America a better, more prosperous, and freer place.

Congressman Blackburn began her elected service career in 1998 as a Tennessee State Senator. Blackburn’s Senate career was marked by her commitment to fiscal common sense and government accountability. She became known to her constituents for holding “budget school” in her district and across the state; identifying waste and offering solutions for a state in a budget crunch.

While serving in the Tennessee Senate, Blackburn led a statewide grassroots campaign to defeat a proposed state income tax. She earned the reputation as a champion of anti-tax and government reform issues, frequently appearing on local talk radio and even earning the attention of national publications like the Wall Street Journal and conservative groups such as Americans for Tax Reform.

Blackburn’s reputation for focusing on individual freedom and free enterprise boosted her from the Tennessee Senate to the U.S. House of Representatives. Blackburn was first elected to represent Tennessee’s 7th Congressional District in 2002, quickly becoming a leader in Congress and a leading voice advocating for a small, efficient federal government that is accountable to its citizens. She is regularly praised by good government groups like the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the Farm Bureau, the Chamber of Commerce, the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council and the American Conservative Union. She has been named a Taxpayer Hero by Americans for Tax Reform each year she has served in Congress. In 2007 Blackburn received the Conservative Leadership Award from the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

Congressman Blackburn is often selected by her colleagues to lead the charge for common sense reform. In February 2010 she was selected to represent conservative views on health care reform at the President’s Blair House Summit. She has served on the majority and minority whip teams since her election in 2002, and holds a seat on the vital Energy and Commerce Committee which has jurisdiction over health care, energy regulation, and telecommunications issues. In 2006 the Independent Electrical Contractors recognized her as their Lawmaker of the Year.

Marsha has earned a special reputation as a bi-partisan leader and policy expert on telecommunications issues and intellectual property rights. She has strong ties with Tennessee’s recording industry and the songwriters and performers who make it great. In 2003 Blackburn founded and serves as Chairman of the Congressional Songwriters Caucus to give the nation’s creative community a voice on Capitol Hill. In 2007, she was awarded the Congressional Grammy by the Recording Academy; the White Hat award from the Nashville Songwriters Association and in 2008 received the Platinum Award from the RIAA.

In 2012, Health IT Now presented her with the HITN Innovation Award for her work in support of innovative solutions to our most pressing healthcare problems. Marsha has also been honored by the Family Research Council and the Susan B. Anthony list for her pro-life, pro-family work. And recognized by the Association of Children’s Hospitals and the American College of Radiology for her leadership on healthcare issues. In April 2013 at the “Women Run The World” Half Marathon in New York City, More Magazine recognized Blackburn for her service in government by honoring her as one of 10 women who are making a difference in the world.

Blackburn was selected to serve as Vice Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee for the 113th Congress where she will continue to serve on four critical Subcommittees: Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade (CMT); Oversight; Health; and Communications and Technology. She serves on the House Budget Committee and is a founding member of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee. Blackburn is also a member of the Smithsonian Libraries Advisory Board.

Marsha and her husband Chuck live in Williamson County, Tennessee. They have two children, Mary Morgan Ketchel and Chad Blackburn; and two grandsons. Blackburn is a native of Laurel, Mississippi and graduate of Mississippi State University.
