Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Obamacare July 22, 2014
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, today’s D.C. Court of Appeals decision in Halbig v. Burwell held that the text of ObamaCare clearly “makes tax credits available as a form of subsidy to individuals who purchase health insurance through exchanges established by the State.”"
Congress Should Repeal Obamacare July 22, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, breaking news. This morning the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld a challenge to the ObamaCare health insurance subsidies being granted in Federal exchanges."
Nomination Of John W. Degravelles To Be United States District Judge For The Middle District Of Louisiana July 22, 2014
John Thune, R-SD
"Among the President’s many fiscally irresponsible policies, ObamaCare stands out as one of the worst offenders. Former Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin has estimated that the President’s health care law will increase the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars in its first 10 years alone and by more than $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years."
Energy Action Team July 22, 2014
Jeffrey Duncan, R-SC
"The input cost of farmers will be affected and will affect the price, rather, of the commodities that moms and dads buy when they go to the grocery store this fall after harvest time. You think about commodity prices being high, and we are already seeing historically high milk prices, historically high beef prices, historically high fuel prices to go back and forth to the grocery store just to buy those commodities. It means less money for the hardworking American taxpayers at the end of the day who are having to pay extra for ObamaCare, extra in taxes to pay for the large government and government spending that we see. We can help. This Congress can help by lowering the price of fuel—gasoline for America’s truckers and for America’s moms and dads who travel back and forth."
Health Care July 21, 2014
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"I note, as I move to the topic of ObamaCare, the absence of any such bipartisan accord during 2009 when the Affordable Care Act was being debated in the Senate. Thus, we have what in April of 2003 Senate Finance Committee Chairman Baucus called a huge train wreck. He was right in seeing the train wreck coming on the rollout of the Web site, but it also has turned out to be a train wreck in far more ways than the Web site glitches and the ultimate fiasco."
