Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"But the big problem we have is that if the Court rules the other way, if those who are critical of the Affordable Care Act—and some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have been on the floor this morning talking about getting rid of the Affordable Care Act—if the Court rules in that direction, we are going to have a problem on our hands because at least in my State, 232,000 people will see their health insurance premiums go up 35 percent, on average, based on that Court ruling."
Alzheimer’S & Brain Awareness Month June 24, 2015
Edward Markey, D-MA
"We need to increase the NIH budget. We need to give that hope to American families. And that is why Senator Crapo and I worked to pass the Alzheimer’s Accountability Act into law. It requires the Director of NIH to submit an annual budget directly to Congress outlining what resources are needed to meet the goal of preventing and treating Alzheimer’s disease by 2025. That is why my colleagues, Senator Stabenow, Senator Collins, Senator Capito, and I introduced the Hope for Alzheimer’s Act, which will allow Medicare beneficiaries to receive comprehensive care-planning services when they are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. That is also why Senator Wyden and I included the Independence at Home Program as part of the Affordable Care Act. This program allows chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries, such as those with Alzheimer’s, to receive primary care services in the comfort of their home. Independence at Home allows teams of doctors and nurses to continue to care for severely ill Medicare patients in their home by bringing the house calls of the yesteryear physicians into the 21st century."
Protecting Seniors’ Access To Medicare Act Of 2015 June 23, 2015
Doug LaMalfa, R-CA
"The IPAB board was going to be very problematic for seniors, and H.R. 1190 is going to be a very important tool in correcting the wrongs of the Affordable Care Act and preserving access to health care. It would indeed have had an unelected board making Medicare spending decisions which, again, would be shifting power to Washington, D.C., and away from that all-important doctor-patient relationship, where it really should be."
King V. Burwell Decision June 22, 2015
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Mr. President, nearly 12 million Americans, including 500,000 Iowans—more than that, actually—now have access to affordable health coverage because of the Affordable Care Act, and many for the first time in their lives."
Protect Medical Innovation Act Of 2015 June 18, 2015
Gwen Moore, D-WI
"H.R. 160, the Protect Medical Innovation Act of 2015, would repeal the 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act. While I voted in opposition of H.R. 160, I recognize the concerns of many in the medical technology industry regarding the implications of an excise tax on medical devices."
