Unauthorized Spending Accountability Act April 27, 2016
Randy Weber, R-TX
"First, the President violated the Constitution by unilaterally changing sections of the Affordable Care Act at least 23 times without having congressional approval. That is Public Law 111-148. Even though he said, probably, on some 20 occasions that he didn’t have constitutional authority to do things, he still did them."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1206, No Hires For The Delinquent Irs Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4885, Irs Oversight While Eliminating Spending (Owes) Act Of 2016 April 19, 2016
Pete Sessions, R-TX
"So, historically, the user fee account has primarily supported taxpayer services in the past.

Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3340, Financial Stability Oversight Council Reform Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3791, Raising Consolidated Assets Threshold Under Small Bank… April 13, 2016
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised by the actions of my friends in the majority. With the kinds of bills that have come to the floor under this Republican Congress, whether they be to roll back environmental protections, 60-plus repeals of the Affordable Care Act, or to deny access to women’s health care, I guess it is not a surprise that now my Republican friends are bringing up legislation to help the big banks and strip away the protections to prevent another financial crisis."
Poverty And The Affordable Care Act March 23, 2016
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Mr. Speaker, this week marks the sixth anniversary of the adoption of the Affordable Care Act."
Affordable Care Act And Early Act Anniversary March 23, 2016
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to celebrate the sixth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. This was President Obama’s and congressional Democrats’ landmark law, which has helped 20 million Americans—1.7 million Floridians in my home State—get quality, affordable health care."
