Entry Title Date
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015— Veto Message From The President Of The United States February 2, 2016
Robert Scott, D-VA
"Mr. Speaker, since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the House of Representatives has attempted to dismantle the law 62 times. Today is number 63, to repeal a major portion of the Affordable Care Act."
Veterans’ Administration Modernization And Health Insurance Co-Ops January 21, 2016
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Madam President, let me thank my friend from Ohio for his very constructive remarks on the success of CO-OPs. We have a CO-OP in Connecticut that has been providing very good quality care at very reasonable rates. It is part of what helps make our marketplace function, and I will look forward to working with him as we try to sustain the success of CO-OPs across the country moving forward as an element of the Affordable Care Act which, as I have said many times on this floor, is working."
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 January 6, 2016
Phil Roe, R-TN
"The premise of the Affordable Care Act was to increase access and decrease costs. Everybody in this building agrees on that. What we got was a 2,500-page bill that few people read that defined what you bought and then fined you when you didn’t buy it, even if you couldn’t afford it. That is what has actually happened."
Providing For Consideration Of Senate Amendment To H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 January 6, 2016
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"The doughnut hole in the prescription drug plan, the cost to senior citizens, is closing. Ultimately, we will eliminate that doughnut hole because of the Affordable Care Act. That is all good."
Omnibus Legislation December 18, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"During the passage of the Affordable Care Act, I authored and was pleased to see that we established a National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities at NIH. It acknowledged the fact that we have not done historically everything we need to do to deal with the disparities in our health care system. This year we are appropriating an additional $9 million to the Institute. I think that continues our commitment to make sure that we deal with all Americans’ health needs."
