Entry Title Date
In Recognition Of The Axis Community Health Clinic In Pleasanton September 19, 2014
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"For over 42 years, Axis has ensured access to primary and preventative care to residents of the Tri-Valley. The rapid growth of the area’s population coupled with changes in family income and changes made by the Affordable Care Act have left the Tri-Valley in need of additional facilities to accommodate residents in need of accessible health services."
Government Accountability Office Report Confirms Obamacare Funds Abortions September 17, 2014
Randy Hultgren, R-IL
"Madam Speaker, I rise today disturbed by a report confirming that the Affordable Care Act provides for a massive expansion of abortion funded by the taxpayer."
Unintended Consequences Of Obamacare Continue To Pile Up September 15, 2014
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Contrary to optimistic early reports, that doesn’t mean that everyone’s costs are falling. Consumers will have to be attentive to make sure that their costs don’t go up. The worse news: we won’t actually know what effect the Affordable Care Act is having on insurance prices until 2017, when a bunch of temporary subsidies for insurers expire."
Promoting Job Creation And Reducing Small Business Burdens Act September 15, 2014
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"I happen to remember being on the floor when we debated the Affordable Care Act. My colleagues on the other side made a huge point of saying, “There are 2,000 pages, and there’s five stacks.” They made this case that there was this big, giant, voluminous bill and people didn’t know what was in it and they were going to be called upon to pass this huge bill the public wouldn’t really understand. They raised a policy point."
Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 11, 2014
Bill Cassidy, R-LA
"This is important economically. The Manhattan Institute reports that the Affordable Care Act, so-called ironically, has increased insurance premiums by 41 percent on average—for women, as much as 62 percent."
