Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Chairman, I find this newfound ideology of having to hit a particular target at a particular time interesting since 3 years ago the Republican budget balanced maybe around the year 2040. And this year, it doesn’t balance if you also claim to be getting rid of the Affordable Care Act, because you have $2 trillion in revenue in savings in this Republican budget from the Affordable Care Act, the same Affordable Care Act you say you are getting rid of. You just can’t have both things true at the same time."
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Resumed April 10, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"There was a new announcement today from the Secretary of Health and Human Services that 7.5 million people have signed up for private health care through the exchanges by virtue of the Affordable Care Act. The initial estimates from CBO last fall were that in the best case about 6 million people were going to sign up. We have blown through that enrollment expectation, and still, on this floor and in committee hearings as recently as this morning, Republicans continue to criticize and critique this law with blistering attacks—not because they have data on their side, not because they have evidence on their side, but because their entire electoral strategy for the fall depends on an assault on the Affordable Care Act."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"The interesting thing to me, Madam Chairman, is that I would have thought that the Republican Study Committee would have taken a different approach. I would have thought they would have taken an approach that didn’t require, as part of their budget, the revenues from the Affordable Care Act, but if you look at their revenue line, it is identical to the revenue line in the House Republican budget, which is identical to the Congressional Budget Office’s revenue line, which The Heritage Foundation—no left-leaning group—has said means that these budgets incorporate the tax revenues from the Affordable Care Act."
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Continued April 10, 2014
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"So this is more complicated than it would seem at first. What about health care? Of course, a student athlete can be covered by his parents’ health care insurance. Under the Affordable Care Act, I am sure many on the other side would be quick to say, they would always be able to be insured for any sort of preexisting condition, but these are issues that can be properly looked at by the NCAA."
National Healthcare Decisions Day April 10, 2014
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"There are also areas where the Federal Government could help alleviate some of the barriers individuals face in trying to complete an advance directive. We know many people could use the assistance of a trusted health care provider in completing an advance directive. In 2010, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services—CMS—included advance care planning as a reimbursable item as part of the annual wellness visit for Medicare beneficiaries under the Affordable Care Act. Unfortunately, just a short time later, CMS reversed itself and removed this service as reimbursable. I hope this decision is revisited."
