Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Unauthorized Spending Accountability Act April 27, 2016
Randy Weber, R-TX
"First, the President violated the Constitution by unilaterally changing sections of the Affordable Care Act at least 23 times without having congressional approval. That is Public Law 111-148. Even though he said, probably, on some 20 occasions that he didn’t have constitutional authority to do things, he still did them."
Tribute To Bart Ellefritz April 26, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Finally, at the age of 62, because of Bart’s persistence and the Affordable Care Act, Judy was able to afford health insurance. She was able to sleep more easily knowing that she was no longer just one bad illness or accident away from total financial ruin."
Ban On Irs Bonuses Until Secretary Of The Treasury Develops Comprehensive Customer Service Strategy April 21, 2016
Pat Meehan, R-PA
"But that is not the issue. Because what has happened here has been the diverting of funding. What nobody is saying is that this same agency has been hit with $1.7 billion of diverted expenditure to service the Affordable Care Act, the healthcare law that was pushed on us and pushed on all America; $1.7 billion has been diverted, will be dedicated this year, but never accounted for when that program was created."
Ban On Irs Bonuses Until Secretary Of The Treasury Develops Comprehensive Customer Service Strategy April 21, 2016
Pat Meehan, R-PA
"And I start again with this effectively unfunded mandate that was put on the IRS by the other side. They talk about funding. They gave them $1.7 billion of responsibility under the Affordable Care Act, but never a penny to pay for it. As my parents used to say when I was a kid: You should have thought about that when you did it."
Irs Oversight While Eliminating Spending (Owes) Act Of 2016 April 20, 2016
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Who are the 7.3 million people who get the tax credit under the Affordable Care Act? Does helping them fall within your definition of taxpayer assistance?"
