Entry Title Date
Medicare Access And Chip Reauthorization Act Of 2015 March 26, 2015
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I am proud to yield 1\1/2\ minutes to the gentlewoman from Tennessee (Mrs. Black), who has spent more than 40 years in health care as a nurse and as a small-business owner."
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."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2, Medicare Access And Chip Reauthorization Act Of 2015, And Providing For Proceedings During The Period From March 27, 2015, Through April 10, 2015 March 26, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. This bill funds Community Health Centers for two years at $7.2 billion dollars. These community health centers serve many of the newly insured people in my district. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, they have health insurance, but thanks to community health centers, they have health care."
The Medicare Access And Chip Reauthorization Act March 26, 2015
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"For more than a decade, Congress has used a bandaid to address the sustainable growth rate, rather than offering permanent reforms. Having served in a nonprofit health care setting for nearly three decades, I experienced firsthand the uncertainty and the anxiety that patients and their providers experienced annually, wondering if draconian cuts to reimbursements would occur. This bipartisan, permanent solution will replace the sustainable growth rate with a more stable system that will ensure our seniors do not lose access to their healthcare providers."
Expressing Gratitude For The Honor To Serve The 18Th District Of Illinois March 26, 2015
Aaron Schock, R-IL
"I fought and opposed the billion-dollar surplus bill, the government takeover of our health care, and the massive new regulations put on small businesses. But, more importantly, I fought for the people of my district so that their voice would be heard and respected by my colleagues, for I heard that voice in every vote that I have cast."
