Entry Title Date
Making A Difference For The American People April 21, 2015
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"We have worked tirelessly to minimize the damage caused by ObamaCare. The first pieces of legislation to pass in the 114th Congress included the Hire More Heroes Act, which would make it easier to hire veterans by exempting those who already have health insurance from being subject to the employer mandate in the President’s health care law, and the Save American Workers Act to change ObamaCare’s 30-hour definition of full-time employment and restore the traditional 40-hour workweek, which has long been the standard for full-time work."
Tax Day April 15, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Comprehensive tax reform is long overdue. Unfortunately, instead of tax reform, under the Obama administration Americans have just gotten more taxes. The President’s health care law created or raised taxes to the tune of more than $1 trillion over the first decade. Several of those taxes have hit families making less than $250,000 a year, despite the President’s campaign pledge not to raise taxes on families making less than $250,000."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 April 15, 2015
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"This budget will also protect our seniors by safeguarding Medicare from insolvency and extending the life of the Medicare trust fund by 5 years. It ensures Medicare savings in the President’s health care law and makes sure those savings are dedicated to Medicare. If it comes from Medicare, it ought to go back to Medicare instead of seeing it go to more overspending on new programs that are outside of Medicare."
Obamacare April 14, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, tomorrow is April 15. April 15 is a date that causes a great deal of stress and anxiety for hard-working American taxpayers. For millions of American families, this year is going to be worse than ever before. The Obama health care law, ObamaCare, is making tax day harder for Americans."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Mr. President, the Affordable Care Act is a critical step forward in our efforts to build on our progress to put patients first and allows every family to get affordable, quality health care. But the work didn’t end when the law passed—far from it. Families across the country are expecting us to keep working to build on that progress and continue to make health care more affordable, accessible, and of higher quality. That is what we are focused on, on this side, and the amendment that just passed did that, but we should not be playing political games in joining to move our health care system backward. It is bad enough that the underlying budget repeals the health care law and cuts patients and families off without proposing an alternative law, but this amendment makes it worse. It means patients and families get skewed, incomplete information about their health care costs. I urge a “no” vote on this amendment."
