Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Equal Pay September 16, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"What has it meant in Illinois? Some 640,000 people in Illinois now have insurance because of the Affordable Care Act. In a State of about 13 million people, that is a substantial number, and 400,000 of them were low-wage workers who had no benefits in their job and now qualify for Medicaid. They have health insurance."
Health Care September 16, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Madam President, last week the House of Representatives voted for the 53rd time to repeal or undermine all of—or aspects of—the Affordable Care Act. This is beginning to sound like a broken record. I was in the House of Representatives for a period of time, so I had the privilege to vote on 30 or 40 of those different pieces of legislation."
Paycheck Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed September 11, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"The unpopularity of where we are headed continues to grow. Just 35 percent of the people who were polled by the monthly poll of the Kaiser Foundation released on Tuesday were supportive of the Affordable Care Act."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3522, Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"They have never enjoyed the type of unprecedented power that they have today until the passage of the Affordable Care Act. The insurance companies—executives from the insurance companies—meet regularly down at the White House with the Secretary of Health and Human Services. We are not privy to those discussions. We have no earthly idea what goes on in those meetings, but we do know that insurance companies are enjoying unprecedented profits right now since the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Their profits have increased. Their stock prices have increased."
Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Phil Gingrey, R-GA
"Unfortunately, Mr. Speaker, like many assurances that were delivered to the American people about the President’s health care law, this has been nothing more than an empty promise. Since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, millions have been notified their insurance plans have been canceled."
