Chuck Fleischmann trying to look important
It's Time to Chuck CHUCK
U. S. Congressman Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee has proven by his votes that he does NOT represent the people and needs of the Third District of Tennessee and doesn't deserve another term.  Voters are fed up with all the political partisanship and fighting in Congress.  We want someone who will work to solve real problems and not waste time on wedge issues that only divide our country.   If you don't like our government, vote to change it.  If you don't vote for change, don't expect better government.
It's time we got a representative who is not afraid to meet voters face to face.

Chuck Fleischmann must have the easiest job in the House of Representatives.  He doesn't even need to read bills, he just votes as the GOP leadership and his corporate and Political Action Committees (PACs) want him to.  It's too bad that he doesn't truly represent the citizens of the Tennessee 3rd District.  As you look through this website, you will see how he puts corporations before people, often to the enrichment of himself and those who sponsor him.

One of Least Effective Legislators

The watchdog website does ratings on members of Congress.  Here is some of what they had to say about Chuck Fleischmann, with some comments added by Woodchuck Chuck for fun. 

Got bipartisan cosponsors on the fewest bills compared to Tennessee Delegation in 2017.  (No one ever accused Chuck of NOT being partisan.)

Got the fewest cosponsors on their bills compared to Tennessee Delegation.  (In nursery school they called this, "Does not play well with others".)

Was most present in votes compared to Tennessee Delegation.  (He should get a good attendance ribbon.  With all his corporate and PAC sponsorship, he needs to be there to vote for their bills to get their campaign contributions.)

Introduced the fewest bills compared to Tennessee Delegation.  (When you are not really trying to help your District, you only need to vote for bills for your donors.)

Got his bills out of committee the 3rd least often compared to Tennessee Delegation.  (Chuck got one bill out of committee in 2017)

Held the 3rd fewest committee positions compared to Tennessee Delegation.  ( He held a leadership position on 0 committees and 1 subcommittee.)

Supported government transparency the 3rd least often compared to Tennessee Delegation.  (GovTrack looked at whether Fleischmann supported any of 21 government transparency, accountability, and effectiveness bills in the House that we identified in this session.  Fleischmann got 1 point, based on one point for cosponsoring and three points for sponsoring any of these bills.)

Joined bipartisan bills the 75th least often compared to All Representatives.  (Back to no one ever accused Chuck of NOT being partisan.)

Working with the Senate.  (The House and Senate often work on the same issue simultaneously by introducing companion bills in each chamber. Zero of Fleischmann’s bills and resolutions had a companion bill in the Senate.  Working with a sponsor in the other chamber makes a bill more likely to be passed by both the House and Senate.)

 Laws Enacted. (Fleischmann introduced zero bills that became law, including via incorporation into other measures, in 2017.  Keep in mind that it takes a law to repeal a law and to be fair, very few bills ever become law.)

We don't need any more Diane Black type Republicans, like Chuck Fleischmann, representing themselves in Congress, instead of us.

Dr. Danielle Mitchell working in the clinic

This year's mid-term election is probably one of the most important elections in years.  It will determine if all the gains made for the average family are eroded or saved.  It will determine if the income inequality that is destroying the middle class will keep getting worse.  With a 99.2 percent voting rate supporting President Trump, Chuck Fleischmann is a big part of this problem. 

There is a new candidate, Dr. Danielle Mitchell, who is running to replace the ineffective Chuck Fleischmann as your Congresswoman.  She is a self made person from very humble beginnings, and through hard work and determination worked her way through medical school and became a medical doctor, then a business woman by opening her own 1400 patient clinic.  She's not afraid of hard work.

She is not a career politician and decided to run for office after the devastating  setback with healthcare legislation.  She thinks healthcare legislation should be written for the benefit of people and not large corporations and pharmaceutical companies.  The United States is the only industrialized nation without universal healthcare and we are suffering for it.  She also believes that healthcare reform is more than health insurance reform, it should be about finding ways to lower costs of services and medicine.

If you are sick of a politician that uses his office for his own personal gain and to keep himself in office at the expense of the people he is supposed to represent, you will make sure you cast a vote for Dr. Danielle Mitchell on November 6, 2018. 

Early Voting is October 17th through November 1st.

Tennessee is dead last in voter turnout for elections.  It is no wonder we don't get a change for the better.  If you are not registered to vote, you have until October 9th to register before the November 6th General Election.  A quick fact, the judicial system no longer uses voter registration as a method to select people for jury duty, just in case that is keeping you from registering.   You can register to vote online at or at your courthouse.

In the 2012 election the Democratic candidate, Dr. Mary Headrick, received over 90,000 votes and lost.  When she ran again in the 2014 off-year election, if all of the same people that had voted for her in 2012, had voted again for her, she would have won.  Over 25,000 did not bother to vote in 2014 and she lost.  Please don't be a non-voter.

Please don't believe your vote doesn't matter.  It matters if you want America to remain a democracy.  Win or lose, your vote matters because you matter.
