Entry Title Date
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 4, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"In my home State, we had a goal to enroll 70,000 new individuals through private insurance and Medicaid, and we hit over 200,000. But the good news doesn’t stop there. According to a new report since the ACA was passed, 9.4 million people with Medicare saved $15 billion on prescription drugs, an average of about $1,600 per beneficiary. For preventive care, there are 39 million people with Medicare and Medicare Advantage who took advantage of at least one preventive service with no cost sharing in 2014. That is why the Times, USA TODAY, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and Politico are saying the simple message that now, more than ever, Americans understand the Affordable Care Act is working."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act Of 2014—Motion To Proceed July 16, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"As a result of ObamaCare and other changes by the Obama administration, a woman on Medicare Advantage could see her average benefits reduced by more than $1,500 a year."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act Of 2014—Motion To Proceed July 15, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"ObamaCare’s cuts to Medicare Advantage and other regulatory actions could reduce the average benefit for women and men who rely on this program by more than $1,500 a year. Concerns such as these are all simply brushed aside by ObamaCare’s supporters."
Health Care June 4, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"Norman from Warrensburg, MO, is concerned about what would happen with Medicare and Medicare Advantage. He says: I was struck with Guillain-Barre in 2005 which has left me disabled as well as other resulting health issues. We expend more than $3,000 out of pocket annually just for my prescriptions alone and that was under a Medicare Advantage plan. This plus the Medicare premiums and the physician care takes almost all of our Social Security benefits. We live in a small community."
Minimum Wage Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued April 30, 2014
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Of course any discussion of Executive overreach by this administration must include ObamaCare. Back when the administration was writing that 2,700-plus page monstrosity, the bill’s proponents argued that its length and complexity were necessary evils, that its many intricate parts were essential to achieve the bill’s promised objectives. The individual mandate, the employer mandate, the minimum coverage requirements, the cuts to Medicare Advantage, and the limits for subsidies to State-run exchanges—we were promised that these provisions and others were both critical and carefully timed to expand coverage and rein in costs. Yet when the time came to implement the law, the administration’s tune changed."
