Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Zika Virus And Va-Milcon Funding Bill June 27, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Again, the House Republicans can’t help themselves and, of course, the Senate Republicans joined with them. They have to do everything they can to whack Planned Parenthood, and that is what they do in this conference report. They restrict funding for birth control provided by Planned Parenthood. Can you believe that? And with this Zika problem, who does it affect? Women, and especially pregnant women. It exempts pesticide spraying from Clean Water Act prohibitions and protections, cuts veterans funding by $500 million, cuts Ebola funding by $107 million, and cuts ObamaCare by $543 million."
Zika Virus Funding June 23, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"They cut a half a billion dollars from the Affordable Care Act—ObamaCare. The Republicans have tried 67 times to defund ObamaCare—67 times—and that has failed, but the stripping of Ebola money and ObamaCare money—it gets worse than that."
Small Business Health Care Relief Act Of 2016 June 21, 2016
Phil Roe, R-TN
"It simply doesn’t make sense for the Federal Government to restrict a positive tool aimed at expanding access to affordable healthcare coverage. It is unconscionable that ObamaCare is penalizing small businesses for trying to do the right thing and alleviate the financial burden on working families."
Bringing Transparency And Accountability To State Exchanges June 13, 2016
Rick Allen, R-GA
"ObamaCare just had its sixth anniversary. In those 6 years, we have learned just how disastrous ObamaCare is, exposing its many flaws. One of those being when the President freely gave money away to States to establish State exchanges, he forgot a major piece of the puzzle. The administration failed to provide a solution to recover these funds when these State exchanges failed."
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."
