Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act February 27, 2015
Harold Rogers, R-KY
"Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and concur in the Senate amendment to the bill (H.R. 33) to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to ensure that emergency services volunteers are not taken into account as employees under the shared responsibility requirements contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
Wasteful Spending February 25, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"Mr. President, when I reran for the Senate in 2010, there were two major issues that dominated the campaign and that continue to dominate the discussion and debate in the Senate postelection. One was the Affordable Care Act, now called ObamaCare, which was pushed through without any bipartisan support. There was a lot of concern among the American people about the impact this would have on their lives. That was an issue of intense discussion and debate during that campaign."
Department Of Homeland Security Funding February 25, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Mr. President, this week we are deciding whether we are going to shut down the Government of the United States of America again. Again. I think it was about a year and a half ago that the Senator from Texas on the other side of the aisle took to the floor and called for shutting down the Government of the United States of America, protesting President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. He did it, and the hardship that created for people all across the United States who relied on essential government services is well documented. The impact it had on the men and women who work in our government was also documented. It cost our economy. It was a bad thing to do. It was a political strategy which on reflection was the absolute worst, to shut down our government."
H.R. 596, A Bill To Repeal The Affordable Care Act February 12, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Speaker, once again, House Republicans are wasting America’s time with another pointless vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. If this bill were to become law, it would rip away affordable health insurance coverage from millions of Americans, allow insurance companies to once again deny coverage based on pre-existing health conditions, and increase costs for seniors with Medicare."
Patient Care Act February 12, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Mr. President, last week I joined my colleague Senator Burr in unveiling the latest version of our legislative proposal to repeal and replace the so-called Affordable Care Act. We are joined this time around by our friend in the House, Chairman Upton of the House Energy and Commerce Committee."
