Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Affordable Care Act May 21, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"So she had to go into Connecticut’s high-risk pool, which meant she was paying $1,200 per month. Anybody who has started up a small business from scratch knows that can be pretty prohibitive. Her salvation came through the Affordable Care Act. When it went into effect and Connecticut’s exchange was established, she was able to find a plan that cost her $430 per month, which is frankly on the high end of plans but it was much more affordable than the one she had."
Obamacare May 21, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"I am writing to you regarding the … rate increase filing in particular and the health insurance filings in general. I am an individual buyer who does not qualify for federal subsidies due to my income level. I have been buying my family plan since before the Affordable Care Act has been passed and implemented."
Asthma Awareness Month May 21, 2015
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Congress must also work to reduce asthma rates. A little over five years ago, Congress passed and President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act, which prohibited insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, like asthma. While this was a terrific stride, more efforts are needed here in Washington."
The Approaching Medicaid Cliff In Puerto Rico May 13, 2015
Pedro Pierluisi, D-PR
"The Affordable Care Act provided a total of $7.3 billion in additional Medicaid funding for the five territories, with Puerto Rico receiving $6.3 billion of that amount. Each territory’s FMAP was also increased from 50 percent to 55 percent. The result is that, instead of receiving about $300 million a year from the Federal Government, Puerto Rico now draws down about $1.1 billion to $1.3 billion annually."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report—Continued May 5, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"They do something else for students, too. The Affordable Care Act, which some call ObamaCare, said: If you graduate from college, you can stay on your parents’ health insurance plan until age 26. Is that important? Boy, it was in our family."
