Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Unfortunately, missing systems are just par for the course when it comes to the President’s health care law."
King V. Burwell Decision June 22, 2015
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"We know what the health care law has meant in Ohio and across the country. Patients can’t be dropped from coverage or charged higher rates just because they got sick. Also, 97,000 young Ohioans have been able to stay on their parents’ health insurance until their 26th birthday, giving them the chance to focus on careers, education, and future plans. Lifetime insurance caps are no longer bankrupting people with chronic conditions. Those with preexisting conditions, such as children with diabetes and asthma, will no longer be denied coverage or charged higher premiums."
Obamacare June 17, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, last week, President Obama spoke at a meeting of the Catholic Health Association, and he told the association that his health care law, as he said, “worked out better than some of us anticipated.”"
Protect Medical Innovation Act Of 2015 June 17, 2015
Charlie Dent, R-PA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong support of this legislation to repeal the medical device tax. However you feel about the 2010 health care law on the whole, we can all agree that the legislation has its flaws. Again, one of the most glaring deficiencies in the law is the medical device tax, designed to extract $26 billion from the industry over 10 years. This new law is already stifling critical innovation and threatening high quality jobs in my district."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"At the same time, Republicans in both Chambers have worked together to put forward substantive and workable alternatives that would permanently replace the President’s health care law with reforms that increase patient choice and reduce the role of the Federal Government in health care."
