Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Conference Report June 28, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"They cut Ebola funding by another $107 million. They rescind ObamaCare by $543 million, after they have already failed 70 times to repeal it. But if that weren’t enough, listen to this one. How about this one. I guess they said: What else could we do to really stick it in their eye? There is a prohibition now in the law that says that you can’t fly the Confederate flag at our military cemeteries. Let’s take that away. We want to be able to fly Confederate flags at military cemeteries."
Zika Virus And Va-Milcon Funding Bill June 28, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"How about ObamaCare? They have tried to revoke it almost 70 times, and it didn’t work. So what do they do? They just rescind $543 million dollars and stick it in the conference report. I guess that was just to get the President’s attention. Of course he is going to veto this, but they wanted to make sure he was going to have something really substantive in order to do it."
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."
