Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Session September 17, 2014
David Vitter, R-LA
"Recently the House of Representatives passed, on a bipartisan basis, H.R. 3522, the Employee Health Care Protection Act by Congressman Bill Cassidy. This bipartisan act that passed the House would keep the President’s core promise throughout the ObamaCare debate when he told every American: If you like the health care coverage you have, you can keep it—period, end of story. I am bringing this up in the Senate because it is vital that the President, and everyone who made that pledge, keep that promise, and the bill that was enacted into law would do that."
Government Accountability Office Report Confirms Obamacare Funds Abortions September 17, 2014
Randy Hultgren, R-IL
"This week, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office revealed that 1,036 of the plans offered under ObamaCare and eligible for taxpayer subsidies cover abortion on demand. Although the President promised in 2009 that “no Federal dollars would be used to fund abortions,” the law’s accounting gimmicks showed otherwise."
Health Care September 17, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"I have come to the floor almost every week. I think I have come to the floor every week it was possible to be on the Senate floor over the course of the last year to discuss the changes we have seen in health care. We are now approaching the 1-year anniversary of the—everybody would agree—disastrous launch of ObamaCare. Most Americans now agree, not only was the launch disastrous, but actually the changes in our health care system have not been what they would have hoped for."
Unintended Consequences Of Obamacare Continue To Pile Up September 15, 2014
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, I would like to offer half a cheer for the recent news that the benchmark price for a “silver” level ObamaCare plan will drop very slightly in FY 2015. Why only half a cheer? As economics writer Megan McCardle recently noted:"
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed September 11, 2014
David Vitter, R-LA
"Madam President, reclaiming the floor, as the Senator knows, it is simply not true that we are being treated on the exchange as other Americans are treated. That is flat out not true. No other American at our income level is getting the huge subsidy that Members of Congress are getting—I am not accepting it—but that Members of Congress are getting under the President’s illegal rule. No other American in our country, no other American gets that deal, and that was nowhere mentioned and nowhere included in the amendment we passed on this topic during the ObamaCare debate. So what the Senator says is just flat out misleading. If he wants to truly be treated as other Americans are treated under the exchange, absolutely. That is what I am asking for. But don’t pretend that present practice does that. It does exactly the opposite."
