Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Robert Scott, D-VA
"You are not going to repeal Medicare as you know it. We have tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act over 50 times and haven’t been able to do it. It is interesting that they want to repeal the services but not the taxes. There are substantial cuts in Pell grants and increases in student loans. Transportation initiatives are just about zeroed out."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
Debbie Stabenow, D-MI
"So our country came together and said: We are going to make sure that for seniors in this country, health care will be available to everyone. We have done that. It is extremely successful. I am very, very concerned about what this budget does to Medicare, as well as the budget in the House of Representatives. First of all, let me say that there is no question that Medicare, as with every other public program, was designed to improve and evolve and be strengthened and add new things—certainly for the security of future generations."
Lifting Defense And Nondefense Budget Caps March 24, 2015
Debbie Dingell, D-MI
"The GOP budget ends Medicare as we know it; it cuts Pell grants; it decimates Head Start, and it doubles down on policies that put working families further behind. One thing that we all need to fear in this budget is the harmful, arbitrary budget caps on both our nondefense and defense programs. These caps hurt all Americans and make our military vulnerable."
Republican Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Resolution March 24, 2015
Terri Sewell, D-AL
"The Republican 2016 budget abandons our students. Our students, overall, are our country’s future. It abandons our students by making cuts to college aid, research, job training, and innovation. It also abandons our most vulnerable. It would end Medicare as we know it and make harmful changes to Medicaid, threatening our seniors across this country."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Robert Scott, D-VA
"Mr. Chairman, this budget is not a serious plan. It contains trillions of dollars in tax cuts, but it doesn’t show a dime’s worth of tax increases when they say it is going to be revenue neutral. It includes trillions of dollars in unspecified cuts that will not be made. For example, are we really going to repeal Medicare as we know it?"
