Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Conference Report On S. 524, Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2016 July 8, 2016
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"While the Republicans will say they introduced a Labor/HHS bill with $500 million in funding for a comprehensive State grant program for substance abuse treatment, what they don’t say is that to provide that funding, we will have to agree to cut funding for other critical programs. The Republican Labor/HHS appropriations bill proposes eliminating funding for ObamaCare, title X family planning services, education programs, and employment training and development programs."
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."
