Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Program July 25, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"The gentleman talks about thousands of pages. We can get into that debate at some other time. I know which he refers to, a bill that had literally more consideration than any other bill I have seen considered by the Congress of the United States—the Affordable Care Act, which is having, in my view, a very positive effect. We don’t need to debate that today."
Progressive Caucus July 24, 2014
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"It was very interesting. Of course, they have opposed the Affordable Care Act and have tried to repeal it—what?—50-some times now, but yet have captured the savings, which the Affordable Care Act is very clear on having made, to base their budget on those captured savings."
Remembering Geraldine Ferraro July 24, 2014
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Women need a social safety net they can count on, at every age and in every stage. That is why we are fighting so hard for seniors by saving Medicare from becoming a coupon and a promise. We are ensuring Social Security remains guaranteed, lifetime and inflation proof. We are also fighting for health care that is affordable and accessible, by passing the Affordable Care Act to end gender discrimination in health care. I was so proud when we passed my Mikulski preventive health amendment, so simply being a woman is no longer a preexisting condition. We are taking a stand against the Supreme Court decision that denies women contraception and family planning, while valuing employer rights over employee rights. And we are fighting to ensure the safety and education of women and girls around the world—whether they are in Nigeria, Central America, or Afghanistan."
Nomination Of Pamela Harris To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Fourth Circuit—Continued July 24, 2014
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"The first of these amendments would repeal the medical device tax that was included as part of the so-called Affordable Care Act. ObamaCare’s $24 billion tax on lifesaving and life-improving medical devices is reducing U.S. employment."
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 24, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"So my colleagues should understand a vote for this nominee is also a solid vote for the Affordable Care Act as the cases make their way through the court."
