Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Chairman, I find this newfound ideology of having to hit a particular target at a particular time interesting since 3 years ago the Republican budget balanced maybe around the year 2040. And this year, it doesn’t balance if you also claim to be getting rid of the Affordable Care Act, because you have $2 trillion in revenue in savings in this Republican budget from the Affordable Care Act, the same Affordable Care Act you say you are getting rid of. You just can’t have both things true at the same time."
Tribute To The Honorable Zev Yaroslavsky April 10, 2014
Henry Waxman, D-CA
"On health care, Zev has worked to secure the viability of our nation’s second largest public health system and pushed for reforms that have brought access to care for millions of vulnerable individuals. He led the push for more primary care and strong partnerships that endure today between LA County’s public system and primary care clinics throughout the County. He has been a tireless advocate for implementation of the Affordable Care Act and its expansion of Medicaid. Medicaid expansion alone has brought health coverage to more than 300,000 uninsured individuals in LA County."
Minimum Wage Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed April 10, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Unfortunately, the Republican Congress has shown itself to be in lockstep with the Koch brothers’ radical agenda. The Republicans continue to push repeal of the Affordable Care Act. I watched the speech on the House floor yesterday, where one House Member indicated that he tried almost 60 times to repeal the bill—almost 60 times."
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Resumed April 10, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"There was a new announcement today from the Secretary of Health and Human Services that 7.5 million people have signed up for private health care through the exchanges by virtue of the Affordable Care Act. The initial estimates from CBO last fall were that in the best case about 6 million people were going to sign up. We have blown through that enrollment expectation, and still, on this floor and in committee hearings as recently as this morning, Republicans continue to criticize and critique this law with blistering attacks—not because they have data on their side, not because they have evidence on their side, but because their entire electoral strategy for the fall depends on an assault on the Affordable Care Act."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 8, 2014
Paul Tonko, D-NY
"There is this path to prosperity for a few that the Republicans have put together with their budget. I suggest that we look at a highway for hope that has been advanced by the Democrats in the House that invests in Alzheimer’s research, higher ed opportunities, infrastructure for this Nation, and a continuation of the Affordable Care Act."
