Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 20, 2016
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"I introduced legislation with Senator Casey, my Pennsylvania colleague, Senator Portman, Senator Brown, and Senator Kaine. That legislation is designed to reduce the frequency and occurrence of prescription opioids finding their way into the black market. Our bill provides Medicare with a tool that Medicaid and private insurers have long had, and that tool is called Lock-In. When an insurer—in the case of our legislation it would be Medicare—discovers that a patient is doctor shopping, which is systematically going to multiple doctors and getting multiple prescriptions for opioids, filling them at multiple pharmacies, and ending up with a commercial scale quantity, our legislation would allow Medicare to lock that patient into a single prescriber and single pharmacy. Any person with a legitimate need can get that need met, but we can put an end to some of these very large quantities reaching the black market."
Recognizing The Village Of Pinecrest On Its 20Th Anniversary February 26, 2016
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-FL
"In celebration of its founding, the residents, schools, public officials, and businesses will join together on Saturday, March 12, for a parade starting at Palmetto Elementary School and ending with a community picnic at Evelyn Greer Park."
An Hour Of Power February 1, 2016
Joyce Beatty, D-OH
"In the 48 years since his death, while we have made some strides in confronting injustices and ending unequal treatment, there is still work to be done. Our Nation is still plagued by the vestiges of segregation and unequal laws and policies, evident today in Flint, Michigan, and its lack of clean drinking water; in it being harder, not easier, to exercise the constitutional right to vote through voter disenfranchisement; Black men being killed in Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago, and my State of Ohio; inequities in health care, poverty, and in our failing schools."
Pro-Life January 12, 2016
John Ratcliffe, R-TX
"Now, this is an immense responsibility, one that I take very seriously, because one of the highest honors I have in representing the Fourth Congressional District of Texas is defending the most vulnerable among us, our unborn children. I am proud to have a voting record that reflects my unwavering commitment to protecting unborn life and ending taxpayer funding of abortion."
Providing For Consideration Of Senate Amendment To H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 January 6, 2016
Gus Bilirakis, R-FL
"This bill gives us the opportunity to take crucial steps toward a more patient-centered healthcare system. It gives us the opportunity to reduce our Nation’s deficit by repealing the majority of the burdensome healthcare taxes and ending harsh penalties."
