Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
National Rural Health Day November 19, 2015
Adrian Smith, R-NE
"Mr. Speaker, this year, rural consumers in 12 States also face the challenge of finding a new insurance plan because the so-called Consumer Oriented and Operated Plan, or CO-OP, created by ObamaCare, from which they purchase coverage, has failed. This includes 120,000 Nebraskans and Iowans who bought coverage through CoOportunity Health."
The Unaffordability Of The Affordable Care Act November 18, 2015
Garret Graves, R-LA
"Five years of Obamacare implementation has produced higher premiums, higher deductibles, higher co-payments and reduced access to care for those who need it most."
The People’S Night November 18, 2015
Mark Walker, R-NC
"If we think back, this is how Harry Reid shoved ObamaCare into the culture and fabric of the American people—by reconciliation, by a simple majority. In fact, it has been Mr. Reid who has blocked, filibustered, and sat on legislation to protect the President. That is why the American people elected Republican majorities in the House and the Senate. It was to clean up Washington and to stand against President Obama’s far-left agenda."
Affordable Care Act November 17, 2015
Dean Heller, R-NV
"As deductibles rise, another way employers are planning on avoiding ObamaCare‘s massive new tax is by eliminating health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts. Over 33 million Americans use FSAs, or flexible spending accounts, and 13.5 million Americans use health savings accounts, or HSAs. They may see these accounts vanish in the coming years as companies scramble to avoid the law’s 40-percent tax hike."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1737, Reforming Cfpb Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 511, Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act Of 2015; And For Other Purposes November 17, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Under this regime, the majority has wasted taxpayer money on their obsession with taking health care away from millions of people and held more than 60 votes to repeal or dismantle ObamaCare. They have spent over $5 million of taxpayer money on a duplicative, politicized Benghazi special committee even after nine other House and Senate committees and one State Department committee had found nothing nefarious nor illegal. Benghazi was, yes, a tragedy, but it was not a conspiracy. To continue with their wasteful, politicized special committees, they created a special committee to investigate Planned Parenthood, even after grilling the president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, for 5 hours in a hearing and the chairman later declared that no law had been broken."
