Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Recognizing The Anniversaries Of Social Security, Medicare, And Medicaid August 5, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"I have long worked to protect and strengthen Medicare and Medicaid for the millions of seniors and younger Americans who depend on these benefits. In 2010, I proudly cast my vote in support of the Affordable Care Act, which is strengthening Medicare and working to keep seniors’ hard-earned savings in their own pockets. Since this law was enacted, millions of seniors throughout the country have saved more than $15 billion dollars on their prescription drug costs and the program’s solvency has been extended for 13 years. The Affordable Care Act has also given States the option of expanding their Medicaid Programs so that more low-income Americans can access the care they need."
Appropriations August 5, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Democrats are ready. Since May, we have been asking to negotiate to eliminate sequester with a sequel to Murray-Ryan. The only way we will have shutdown, showdown, and government by self-made crisis is if the Republican majority refuses to send the President bills he can sign and instead sends bills that are too spartan or contain poison pill riders like prohibiting funding for Planned Parenthood or signature initiatives like the Affordable Care Act and climate pollution rules."
Funding The Federal Government August 5, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"In the 1990s Republicans shut the government to force cuts in Medicare. In 2013 they shut the government to force repeal of the Affordable Care Act. It is clear that both of those times were total failures."
Tribute To Scott Watts August 4, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Prior to becoming the president of NARA, Scotty was a leading advocate for retirees and seniors in the Silver State. He served two terms as the president of the Nevada National Council of Senior Citizens. Through his leadership positions in these organizations, he led the effort in our State to protect and strengthen the benefits seniors have earned under Social Security and Medicare and has been a fierce advocate for the Affordable Care Act. I am pleased that this month NARA will honor Scotty during the organization’s State convention for his career in dedicated service and advocacy."
Prohibiting Federal Funding Of Planned Parenthood Federation Of America—Motion To Proceed August 3, 2015
Angus King, I-ME
"Ironically, amidst all the discussion about the Affordable Care Act, a criticism which was “Maybe you can’t keep your own doctor,” this is a bill designed to keep you away from your doctor, the doctor you have been seeing and have confidence in at a clinic run by Planned Parenthood."
