Tempered apology to Marsha Blackburn

This is what happens sometimes when your busy. You don't have time to check everything before you blog about something. I was "informed" by a reader of my blogs that Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn is in fact doing something about the unemployment problems in her district. She is sponsoring a jobs fair today at Freed Hardeman University in Henderson, Tn. Even though the event is now over at the time I'm posting this. The Congressman at least made a public effort in one area of her district so she deserves a tempered apology from me concerning a post I put up from earlier this week criticizing her over the high unemployment rates in her district. So now its back to attacking "ol Roy"(aka Roy Herron). I wonder if he's held a jobs fair in his state senate district lately? He's shown Perry and Humphreys counties that he's pretty much irrelevent when it comes to funding road improvements. The least he could is have a job's fair in that economically depressed area.

But 400 BILLION on unconstitutional health care is ok?

Prescription Drug Benefit.
The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-ofpocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
Marsha Blackburn Voted FOR this bill.
