Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 3, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"The issue at hand is whether Americans who receive the opportunity to buy quality health insurance, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, can get assistance in paying for that care. The law gives our States a choice. Our States can design and manage an insurance exchange on their own or they can allow their citizens to shop on a federally run exchange. Furthermore, the law created tax credits to help Americans afford the cost of health insurance."
The American Health Security Act Of 2015 March 2, 2015
Jim McDermott, D-WA
"The Affordable Care Act was a dramatic step forward in improving the health security of the American people. This landmark law has expanded access to coverage, improved the solvency of our public programs, and made numerous reforms that have saved consumers billions of dollars. As we look for ways to build upon and strengthen the law, we must recognize that millions of Americans continue to fall through the cracks in the private health insurance market. The only way to truly ensure that access to quality health care is a right enjoyed by every American is through a single-payer system."
Bridging The Divide: Observations On Race And Justice In America March 2, 2015
Joyce Beatty, D-OH
"Mr. Speaker, we must confront these prejudices and these injustices in our Nation head-on. The Congressional Black Caucus is committed to resolving these challenges. The Congressional Black Caucus has fought to ensure funding the Pell grant. Pell grants are contained in each year’s appropriations bills. We have worked hard to make sure that the maternity and newborn care are part of health care plans under the Affordable Care Act. Over 390,000 African American women in the individual market alone are projected to gain maternity coverage thanks—yes, thanks—to the Affordable Care Act. Our task force on the elimination of sentencing disparities is moving the ball on how Black men and women are treated in the judicial system."
Wasteful Spending February 25, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"Mr. President, when I reran for the Senate in 2010, there were two major issues that dominated the campaign and that continue to dominate the discussion and debate in the Senate postelection. One was the Affordable Care Act, now called ObamaCare, which was pushed through without any bipartisan support. There was a lot of concern among the American people about the impact this would have on their lives. That was an issue of intense discussion and debate during that campaign."
H.R. 596, A Bill To Repeal The Affordable Care Act February 12, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Speaker, once again, House Republicans are wasting America’s time with another pointless vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. If this bill were to become law, it would rip away affordable health insurance coverage from millions of Americans, allow insurance companies to once again deny coverage based on pre-existing health conditions, and increase costs for seniors with Medicare."
