Entry Title Date
Affordable Care Act May 21, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Similar stories can be told all over the country, but it is not just anecdotes that we have to rely on any longer to talk about the success of the Affordable Care Act."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report—Continued May 5, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Emergency room visits continue to climb in the second year of the Affordable Care Act, contradicting the law’s supporters who had predicted a decline in traffic as more people gained access to doctors and other health care providers."
The Budget April 15, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"When we talk about the needs of America, the most significant need and the most significant economic problem we face is that for 40 years the American middle class has been in decline. Today we have over 40 million Americans living in poverty, almost more than at any time in the modern history of America. Our real unemployment is not 5\1/2\ percent; real unemployment is 11 percent. And despite the modest gains of the Affordable Care Act, we still have 35 million Americans who have no health insurance."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 April 15, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"So if we can invest a dollar into the IRS and get $6 to $4 back, I think that is a pretty good investment. Senator Enzi was right in saying that last night we passed a pretty good piece of legislation. Not perfect by any means. I had some serious concerns about it. I voted for it. One of the reasons I voted for it is it extended for another 2 years a program that I worked very hard on—that is, the Federally Qualified Community Health Center Program which is playing a huge role in providing health care and dental care and low-cost prescriptions drugs and mental health counseling to many millions of Americans in all of our 50 States. We got a significant increase. I fought very hard for a significant increase in that program as part of the Affordable Care Act that was going to expire."
Federal Employee Tax Accountability Act Of 2015 April 15, 2015
Stephen Lynch, D-MA
"Under this bill, though, tax information—which now includes health information because of the Affordable Care Act—is all going to be shared among every single Federal agency to take so-called adverse personnel actions against one of its employees where the agency finds that an individual has willfully fallen behind on his or her taxes or failed to file a return on time."
