Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Small Business Health Care Relief Act Of 2016 June 21, 2016
Phil Roe, R-TN
"Because of the Affordable Care Act, I constantly hear from families who are paying higher premiums and out-of-pocket costs for less coverage and lower quality of care. I hear from small-business owners who desperately want to help their employees acquire health insurance, but face costly regulations that make it harder, if not impossible, for them to do so."
Bridging The Divide: A Call To Action By The Congressional Black Caucus To Eliminate Racial Health Disparities June 13, 2016
Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY
"We are thankful for the work that has been done by the Congressional Black Caucus and by President Obama through his leadership of the Affordable Care Act. We now know that over 20 million previously uninsured Americans now have access to quality, affordable health care—disproportionately African American."
Zika Virus May 16, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"When the Affordable Care Act—or ObamaCare, as it has come to be known—was passed, it included a provision for the Prevention and Public Health Fund. This, again, was part of the Affordable Care Act. The purpose that was stated in the legislation was “to provide for expanded and sustained national investment in prevention and public health programs.” In other words, it could have been tailor-made to deal with this potential Zika crisis."
Income Inequality May 16, 2016
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"Discouraging individuals from entering the labor force, taking on more work hours, gaining extra experience, or learning new skills, is a recipe for stagnate incomes and increased income disparity. But, far from seeking to address these work disincentive effects, President Obama has made it worse for millions of workers. Take the premium tax credit enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act for instance. CBO estimates it will raise marginal tax rates by an estimated 12 percentage points for recipients."
Recognizing Dr. David R. Stone On His Retirement May 12, 2016
Adam Smith, D-WA
"Dr. Stone has committed his entire career to nonprofit community mental health. For the past 27 years, he has served as Chief Executive Officer of Sound Mental Health, which is one of King County’s most comprehensive mental health providers. Services provided include mental health, substance abuse, and behavioral health services to children, men, and women. Following the passage of the Affordable Care Act, under Dr. Stone’s leadership, Sound Mental Health successfully facilitated the integration of behavioral health with primary care, realizing tremendous growth from this alignment. His unrelenting dedication to mental health services resulted in Sound Mental Health growing to 80-plus programs, supporting more than 20,000 people, and generating annual revenue in the millions of dollars."
