Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
No Rate Regulation Of Broadband Internet Access Act April 15, 2016
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"I don’t blame him. Our Democratic budget invests in education, infrastructure, medical research, job training, job creation, American priorities that improve our communities today and increase revenue in the future. It is why they are called investments. In contrast, the Republicans took the European austerity approach: eviscerating each of those investments and taking health coverage away from 20 million Americans, ending Medicare as we know it, and jeopardizing the retirement of millions of Americans. It also makes us less competitive, and encourages companies to ship jobs overseas."
Debt Management And Fiscal Responsibility Act Of 2015 February 11, 2016
Joseph Crowley, D-NY
"At least they detail these cuts, such as ending Medicare as you know it."
Anniversary Of Citizens United Decision January 21, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"I have a list of some of the things they have advocated for decades. It used to be just the fringe, but now we have people running for President who agree with him. They want to abolish Social Security, eliminate minimum wage laws, dismantle Medicare as we know it, dismantle our public education system, dismantle protections for clean air and water, create tax breaks for themselves, and they have done a pretty good job of that. They are prepared to use their enormous wealth to accomplish these goals. They really put their money where their mouth is. They spend it because they have it to spend. They have pledged to spend about $1 billion this cycle, not counting all the money they have spent in years past. "
Balancing The Budget October 9, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Social Security and Medicare, as you know, Mr. Speaker, are funded by payroll taxes. Payroll taxes are that FICA line on our pay stubs. It is the largest tax, at 15.3 percent of every worker’s paycheck in this country. It is the largest tax that most American families pay."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 30, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"I stand on the Senate floor to say that we must keep Medicare as Medicare and keep the integrity and solvency of Medicare. We cannot turn Medicare into a voucher; we cannot dilute it, phase it out, or eliminate it. And until my last vote is cast in the Senate, I will defend Medicare."
