Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Paul Ryan, R-WI
"Here is the dirty little secret. Look at what they have already done to Medicare. It was ObamaCare that ended Medicare as we know it, it was ObamaCare that raided $700 billion from Medicare to spend on ObamaCare, it was ObamaCare that set up this new rationing board of 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats to put price controls on Medicare, which will lead to denied care for seniors."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 8, 2014
Paul Ryan, R-WI
"Second, we end the raid on Medicare. The dirty little secret that the other side won’t want to talk about is the fact that they turned Medicare into a piggy bank for ObamaCare. They raided $716 billion from Medicare to pay for ObamaCare. We say that those savings from Medicare need to stay with Medicare to make it more solvent, and if some of those savings from Medicare are doing damage to the Medicare provider network, like reducing access to things like Medicare Advantage, then we have a mechanism in here to make sure that we can fix that, just like we did for the SGR, otherwise known as the “doc fix.”"
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions April 1, 2014
Pat Roberts, R-KS
"This President has already raided half a trillion dollars from Medicare to pay for ObamaCare, and then he gave himself the ability to go after even more Medicare dollars without any accountability. This, my friends, is frightening. It is irresponsible. But there is more."
Medicare Advantage March 14, 2014
Jeffrey Denham, R-CA
"The President’s massive government overhaul of our health care system has raided $300 million from Medicare Advantage plans and created a health care tax that has just started this year. These payment cuts and the new health insurance tax are already being felt with canceled plans, reduced benefits, and increased co-payments."
National Youth Synthetic Drug Awareness Week March 12, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"However, new synthetic drugs have emerged since the passage of that law. In fact, the Drug Enforcement Administration has moved to administratively place an additional 17 chemical compounds on the list of schedule I narcotics in recent months. Included among these drugs is a compound called 5F-PB-22, which was blamed for the deaths of three young Iowans last year. Moreover, in just the past few days, police in Iowa have arrested six people and raided multiple stores in the Des Moines area for selling synthetic drugs. These tragic deaths and arrests of those pushing these substances underscore the ongoing need to raise awareness of these deadly drugs."
