Chapter 11 Blog Assigment

1. Who are your Senators and your Congressman?
Our Senators are Alexander Lamar and Bob Corker. My Congressman is Scott DesJarlais.

2. Reserach the areas they champion and find one you support.  What is it and why do you also support it?
Congressman Scott DesJarlais is against all of the 'jobs stimulus' President Obama is currently pursuing. He wants to pass bills that will allow small business to grow. He wants to stop over-spending, stop over-taxing and, above all, stop over-regulating. I do not think taxing the rich is the answer to our problems, or giving all this help to 'big' business', as we see how in favor of the American population they are. Small business' are the ones keeping the jobs here in America for the American people. I do believe they are the key to getting us out of this jobs mess.

3. Find an issue one of your Senators or Congressman champions that you disagree with.  Why do you disagree?
Senator Bob Corker has effectively cornered Amazon and other online retailers to charge sales tax.  I do not agree with this policy. From a personal stand point I believe congress spends way to much money without the American approval and then taxes to make up some of that. Americans are taxed on far to many things in my opinion, when the average household can not make bills.


  1. I agree with your views on Bob Corker..he seemed kind of "shady" to me too...:)

  2. I agree with ChristyB on Bob Corker. Good job!
