Entry Title Date
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed—Continued October 8, 2015
Dean Heller, R-NV
"Mr. President, I rise today to share my concerns with the devastating impact of the Cadillac tax, enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act. The Cadillac tax is a 40-percent excise tax set to take effect in 2018 on employer-sponsored health care plans around the country. This is precisely why I have authored the only bipartisan piece of legislation that would fully repeal this onerous tax. The reason I did so is that in Nevada, 1.3 million workers who have employer-sponsored health insurance plans will be hit by this Cadillac tax. These are public employees in Carson City. They are service industry workers on the Strip in Las Vegas, small business owners, and retirees all across the State. Hardly anyone in Nevada will be shielded from the devastating effects of this Cadillac tax."
Washington Is Out Of Step With America October 8, 2015
Luis Gutierrez, D-IL
"In many cases, Planned Parenthood is the only source of affordable and accessible reproductive health care, contraception, HIV and STD testing, cancer screenings, and basic health care for women."
Native American Energy Act October 8, 2015
Raúl Grijalva, D-AZ
"Mr. Chairman, I urge my colleagues to abandon this irresponsible proposal in favor of a real tribal energy bill. In the meantime, I would plead with my colleagues to bring legislation to the floor addressing Indian health care, Indian education programs, a codified process for tribal consultation with Federal agencies that respects sovereignty and upholds the trust responsibility that we have to Indian Country, and a fix—finally, a fix—for the current cloud hanging over the status of so many trust lands."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed October 8, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"I think it is also important to note that too often those who commit terrible acts of violence needed help and intervention they did not get. To be clear, they represent a very small minority of the many people in our country who struggle with mental illness. But when so many lives are truly on the line, we need a comprehensive approach, and that should include strengthening our mental health care system so that it is available to anyone who needs it."
Medicare Part B Premium Increase October 8, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"A typical Medicare beneficiary pays almost $5,000 per year for premiums, cost sharing, and other services that aren’t covered by insurance. For many, that is not an unreasonable contribution for their health care, but not for everyone."
