Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Obamacare May 21, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, I come to the floor noting that my friend and colleague from Connecticut was just on the floor talking about the President’s health care law. It is interesting that he would do so at a time when we are seeing headline after headline about ObamaCare plan premiums increasing again all over the country."
Religious Freedom May 21, 2015
Alex Mooney, R-WV
"And in the beautiful Second Congressional District of West Virginia, which I have the honor of representing, Joe Holland, a businessowner, is currently being pushed to violate his religious views and values by an ObamaCare regulation that requires him to provide abortifacient drugs to his employees as a part of so-called health care. A regulation commonly known as the HHS mandate requires him to provide the drugs or face a penalty of $100 per day per employee. For a company of 150 employees, that is about $5.5 million a year, or about $36,000 per employee."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"It seems like every week we see another headline about another damaging side effect of the President’s health care law. Here is one example from a story yesterday morning, the front page of Investor’s Business Daily: “ObamaCare Rates Will Soar In 2016, Early Data Signal.” Average 18.16 percent hike proposed. It is an astonishing fact that people are facing—increasing rates, soaring again in 2016."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Continued May 19, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"There comes a limit to what you can do in these matters. As I said, this is probably the most important bill in many respects, outside of ObamaCare, in this President’s 8 years. It is an extremely important bill for our country. It is an extremely important bill for our economy. It is an extremely important bill for our allies over in those areas. It is an extremely important bill that helps to set the stage for TTIP, the 28 countries in Europe."
Honoring Fallen Law Enforcement Officers May 15, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Now, that is different from socialized medicine, like ObamaCare is taking us toward, government control. I have friends on the Republican side of the aisle who say, Louie, we won’t have to worry. ObamaCare is going to fall of its own weight. The problem is government health care, socialized medicine, it never falls of its own weight. Socialism does. It can’t survive because when you are paying people to not work the same amount you are paying people to work, eventually you destroy the society. And we are in the process of doing that here in America, paying people to do things that are destructive to their well-being. We ought to be incentivizing good conduct, not rewarding conduct destructive to the individual and to the Nation."
