Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Continued April 22, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"This is, sadly, an effort to attack ObamaCare, and it shouldn’t be done in this important legislation. We have wasted 4 weeks on an extraneous issue. Let us stick to the basic issue before us."
Making A Difference For The American People April 21, 2015
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"We have worked tirelessly to minimize the damage caused by ObamaCare. The first pieces of legislation to pass in the 114th Congress included the Hire More Heroes Act, which would make it easier to hire veterans by exempting those who already have health insurance from being subject to the employer mandate in the President’s health care law, and the Save American Workers Act to change ObamaCare‘s 30-hour definition of full-time employment and restore the traditional 40-hour workweek, which has long been the standard for full-time work."
Tax Day April 15, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Let’s take the ObamaCare medical device tax. Thanks to this tax, families are now facing higher prices on lifesaving medical equipment such as pacemakers and insulin pumps. ObamaCare taxes are also driving up prices for families on essential drugs such as EpiPens and asthma medications. Other ObamaCare taxes are costing American families in other ways."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 April 15, 2015
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"How did it get to 7.5 percent? After checking into it, it appears the Washington bureaucracy decided to keep more than their share of the money instead giving it to the kids across America who were supposed to have it. It did get restored, but the discouraging part was that when I asked the people who talked to me before how things were going, they said: Well, we got the extra money, but in order to meet the employer requirements in Wyoming for ObamaCare, we had to spend all of that money, so none of the kids happened to go back to Head Start. That was very disappointing. That is not the way to run a government and it is not the way to run a business. It should never have happened."
Obamacare April 14, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, tomorrow is April 15. April 15 is a date that causes a great deal of stress and anxiety for hard-working American taxpayers. For millions of American families, this year is going to be worse than ever before. The Obama health care law, ObamaCare, is making tax day harder for Americans."
