Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Progressive Caucus July 24, 2014
Mark Pocan, D-WI
"Representative Lee, if you would yield to one more question since we are talking about the bad math that we all too often see from the other side of the aisle: Didn’t we also, during the budget, see some incredibly bad math when it came to the budget’s repealing the benefits of the Affordable Care Act but its somehow trying to keep the revenue in savings? Wasn’t that bad math something like $2 trillion worth of bad math, and now we are supposed to accept this $300 billion, allegedly, “no cuts” to the program? What were those numbers?"
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 17, 2014
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans are required to cover preventive services, including birth control without a copay. Congress has an obligation to see that the intent of the Affordable Care Act to make preventive health care affordable and accessible comes to fruition and act to make sure that the pharmacy counter does not come between women and timely access to contraception."
Separation Of Powers July 17, 2014
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"It is saying that we have experienced institutional harm in article I. In article I in the House, we have experienced institutional harm. It authorizes the Speaker to file suit not on his behalf but on our behalf. He is not the Speaker of the Republicans. He is not the Speaker of the Democrats. He is the Speaker of the whole House. It is to file suit on our behalf, and it is a suit on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act Of 2014—Motion To Proceed—Continued July 16, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"The reality is it is more important now than ever to protect this coverage, because as a result of the Affordable Care Act, there are millions more women, millions more families all across the country who have access to prescription contraception. Twenty-four million more prescriptions for oral contraceptives were filled without a copay in 2013 than in 2012. That is by virtue of the protections in the Affordable Care Act."
Executive Session July 16, 2014
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"A recent analysis by the Department of Health and Human Services reports that because of the Affordable Care Act, more than 30 million women are now eligible to receive preventive health services, including contraception, with no copays. In fact, since 2013 women have saved nearly $500 million in out-of-pocket costs because of the ACA’s requirement to cover contraceptive care."
