Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Issues Of The Day May 19, 2016
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"So just like with the revelations about ObamaCare, now that we have had someone working behind the scenes with the administration who revealed, yes, the reason ObamaCare passed was because people are such fools, they were able to fool them into voting for a bill that was really not anything like what was being represented. And yet along comes Ben Rhodes, and he admits they did the same thing on ObamaCare that they did on the Iranian treaty."
Zika Virus May 16, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"When the Affordable Care Act—or ObamaCare, as it has come to be known—was passed, it included a provision for the Prevention and Public Health Fund. This, again, was part of the Affordable Care Act. The purpose that was stated in the legislation was “to provide for expanded and sustained national investment in prevention and public health programs.” In other words, it could have been tailor-made to deal with this potential Zika crisis."
Cms On State Exchanges May 12, 2016
Rick Allen, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, thanks to a report by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now know that a top CMS official misled Congress during a hearing that was investigating wasted funds on ObamaCare State exchanges. I have the report right here in my hand."
A Stronger America Or A Path To Economic Disaster May 11, 2016
Bob Gibbs, R-OH
"This leaves ObamaCare. Too many Americans have felt the negative consequences of what boils down to a government takeover of the healthcare industry. The President claimed this law would decrease premiums by $2,500 per year. Instead, they have risen since ObamaCare has been enacted. To go with the increase in cost, many Americans have seen a sharp decrease in their choices. There are fewer plans available, restricting the ability of hardworking families to choose coverage that is appropriate for their circumstances."
The Iran Deal May 10, 2016
Ron DeSantis, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, Ben Rhodes from the administration said that the Iran deal would be the ObamaCare of the administration’s second term. When I heard that, I thought, “Sheesh,” because a lot of us don’t think highly of ObamaCare. We don’t think it has worked out well. We didn’t think the Iran deal was going to work out well. But now that actually has a deeper meaning."
