Affordable Care Act March 11, 2014
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Remarkably, the administration now wants us to believe it is actually a good thing so many people are reducing their work hours in order to keep their government-mandated health care.

Legislative Session February 6, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Is this the way the Obama administration thinks its health care law is supposed to work? They are actually saying, yes, it is. Jason Furman, the President’s top economist, said the health care law “is helping labor markets, is helping businesses, and is helping jobs.”"
