Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed January 12, 2016
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, tonight President Obama will be coming to Congress to deliver his final State of the Union Address. His advisers have been all over television talking about what the President is planning to say. Tonight, I expect President Obama will talk a little about the health care law. Last year in his State of the Union Address, the President bragged—he actually bragged—that more people have insurance now than when he took office. I expect he will probably say something similar tonight."
The State Of The Union January 12, 2016
John Thune, R-SD
"In addition to the lack of economic opportunity, families have had to shoulder new burdens thanks to the Obama administration. Chief among those burdens, of course, is ObamaCare, the President’s disastrous health care law, which has failed to reduce the cost of health care, ripped away millions of Americans’ preferred health care plans, forced families onto insurance plans they don’t want and can’t afford, reduced patients’ access to doctors and hospitals, increased taxes, and wasted literally billions of taxpayer dollars."
The President’S State Of The Union Address January 12, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"As we reflected on the recent vote we had on appealing ObamaCare, which the President vetoed, we have the political will and votes to change that ill-considered and misguided health care law and to replace it with something that makes more sense, is more affordable, and suits the needs of individual Americans. What we do need is a new President, and I think we have demonstrated that. "
Omnibus Legislation December 17, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"This also rolls back several of President Obama’s ObamaCare taxes and can provide relief to folks all over the country being crushed by the President’s failed, unpopular health care law."
Trade Act Of 2015 October 29, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"So with this legislation we have bipartisan agreement on the need to remove at least part—and not an insignificant part—of ObamaCare. That is important. That is a good reason to vote for this. Obviously, we need to do more, but in my view any acknowledgement from my friends on the other side that any part of the President’s health care law doesn’t work is good progress. We haven’t been able to get them to admit that in all these years of this failing program that is going on."
