Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Congress Should Repeal Obamacare July 22, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"The Affordable Care Act was written so that tax subsidies for insurance premiums were only allowed in State-based exchanges. But so far, 14 of the 50 States have set up State-based exchanges. Many others, including Texas, are in Federal fallback exchanges."
Highway Trust Fund July 22, 2014
Patty Murray, D-WA
"For far too many years, Congress has been lurching from crisis to crisis, from debt limit scares to fiscal cliffs. That dysfunction hit a peak last October with a government shutdown over a misguided attempt to block the Affordable Care Act from covering millions of families and with another Federal default scare. The lurching from crisis to crisis with constant dysfunction and uncertainty hurt workers and our families, and it shook the confidence of people across the country who expect their elected officials to work together to get things done."
Nomination Of John W. Degravelles To Be United States District Judge For The Middle District Of Louisiana July 22, 2014
John Thune, R-SD
"Politico reports that the Congressional Budget Office attributes the coming growth of the debt to—among other things—“rising health care costs” and “the expansion of subsidies offered through ObamaCare.” So much for the President’s claim that the health care law would be “the largest deficit reduction plan in over a decade.” But that is par for the course for the Affordable Care Act."
Health Care July 21, 2014
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"I note, as I move to the topic of ObamaCare, the absence of any such bipartisan accord during 2009 when the Affordable Care Act was being debated in the Senate. Thus, we have what in April of 2003 Senate Finance Committee Chairman Baucus called a huge train wreck. He was right in seeing the train wreck coming on the rollout of the Web site, but it also has turned out to be a train wreck in far more ways than the Web site glitches and the ultimate fiasco."
Financial Services And General Government Appropria- Tions Act, 2015 July 18, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"In addition to these funding decisions, H.R. 5016 contains policy riders hostile to the President’s Climate Action Plan, the Affordable Care Act, women’s reproductive health and standards governing the political activities of tax-exempt organizations. The independence of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau would be terminated under this legislation."
