Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Health Care July 21, 2014
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"I note, as I move to the topic of ObamaCare, the absence of any such bipartisan accord during 2009 when the Affordable Care Act was being debated in the Senate. Thus, we have what in April of 2003 Senate Finance Committee Chairman Baucus called a huge train wreck. He was right in seeing the train wreck coming on the rollout of the Web site, but it also has turned out to be a train wreck in far more ways than the Web site glitches and the ultimate fiasco."
Financial Services And General Government Appropria- Tions Act, 2015 July 18, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"In addition to these funding decisions, H.R. 5016 contains policy riders hostile to the President’s Climate Action Plan, the Affordable Care Act, women’s reproductive health and standards governing the political activities of tax-exempt organizations. The independence of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau would be terminated under this legislation."
Save Medicare Home Health Act July 17, 2014
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today as a cosponsor of the Securing Access Via Excellence, or SAVE, Medicare Home Health Act, legislation introduced by my colleagues Mr. Walden and Dr. Price to replace the cuts to Medicare home health funding under the President’s Affordable Care Act with a value-based purchasing program."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4719, Fighting Hunger Incentive Act Of 2014 July 17, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"Let me just talk briefly about the issue that came up about the Supreme Court decision. Unlike Mr. Nadler, I was not here in 1993 and 1994. I was not part of the Congress that passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, but many of the same people who wrote and voted for and defended the Affordable Care Act, the cast of characters is remarkably similar. In fact, the gentleman from New York, Senator Schumer, when he was a Member of the House, was, I believe, the lead sponsor of that, and he is now in the Senate. The majority leader in the Senate was a “yes” vote on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 17, 2014
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans are required to cover preventive services, including birth control without a copay. Congress has an obligation to see that the intent of the Affordable Care Act to make preventive health care affordable and accessible comes to fruition and act to make sure that the pharmacy counter does not come between women and timely access to contraception."
