Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
President’S Health Care Law November 19, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Madam President, this past Saturday the open enrollment period for the Obama health care law opened in terms of the health care exchange. People who bought health insurance through or through their State’s exchange are finally allowed to see how much their insurance is going to cost next year. Things were pushed back beyond the election so people wouldn’t be able to find out before the election what it was going to cost. So the Obama administration had all of this information for awhile, but they intentionally kept it secret until after election day. Now people get to see the prices, and many people across the country are absolutely in shock at the increased costs of the health care law."
Keystone Pipeline And Enforcing The Law November 19, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"As I said earlier, and will say again, I am still trying to find that phrase in the Constitution that says: If the Congress doesn’t do this, the President can. Whether it is issuing waivers to States from the work requirements contained in the bipartisan Welfare Reform Act of 1996 or announcing another change in the President’s health care law—and I have lost count of how many changes on his own the President has had the administration do—they continue to look for ways to circumvent what the law says: a nation of laws, respect for the laws."
Child Care And Development Block Grant Of 2014—Resumed November 13, 2014
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Senator Brown, please vote no to repeal the health care law. My family and friends appreciate the added benefits we are getting from the current health care law. My son’s fiancee is currently finishing her graduate degree."
Jonathan Gruber’S Statements Are Shocking But Not Surprising November 12, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, in 2009, President-elect Obama wrote a memo that his Presidency will usher in an unprecedented level of openness. But this week, it was revealed that the lead architect for the Affordable Care Act, Jonathan Gruber, capitalized on—his words now—the stupidity of the American people in passing the health care law. He further went on to say the lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and was critical to passing the law."
Stunning Contempt For The American People November 12, 2014
Keith Rothfus, R-PA
"Mr. Speaker, everyone remembers the promise the President made while promoting his health care law: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” He broke his promise."
