Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Protecting Seniors’ Access To Medicare Act Of 2015 June 18, 2015
Gus Bilirakis, R-FL
"Seniors rely on Medicare, as well as the doctors who will see them. If this unelected, unaccountable Board cuts reimbursement rates, doctors will stop seeing Medicare patients. That is bad for the 180,000 seniors in my district."
Medicare Advantage Coverage Transparency Act Of 2015 June 17, 2015
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"Knowledge is power. Knowledge of Medicare Advantage and who is receiving it in whose district we think is very important to strengthening Medicare as an entire program going forward."
