Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Mr. President, across the street from the Senate Chamber is the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court this week has several important cases pending. We are waiting anxiously for decisions, but probably the one that affects as many Americans as any other is a case called King v. Burwell. King is a case that was brought by someone who was objecting to the Affordable Care Act—ObamaCare."
Healthcare.Gov Data Breach June 24, 2015
Barry Loudermilk, R-GA
"When the 111th Congress ran through this body the Affordable Care Act, the American people were sold a bill of goods with deceiving statements and deceptive promises, statements such as, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” Although this disastrous legislation passed against the will of the people, some Americans trusted that the law would not take away their chosen healthcare plan. Unfortunately, the American people found out the hard way they have been deceived."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2822, Department Of The Interior, Environment, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2042, Ratepayer Protection Act… June 24, 2015
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"Now, a lot of people will credit the change in the House majority to the President’s healthcare law—and, indeed, it was ill-advised; and, indeed, it did upset a lot of people very quickly—but prior to that, even before we began having the big debates on the Affordable Care Act—the big debates on what became ObamaCare—the then-Speaker of the House brought to the floor of this House Waxman-Markey."
Alzheimer’S & Brain Awareness Month June 24, 2015
Edward Markey, D-MA
"We need to increase the NIH budget. We need to give that hope to American families. And that is why Senator Crapo and I worked to pass the Alzheimer’s Accountability Act into law. It requires the Director of NIH to submit an annual budget directly to Congress outlining what resources are needed to meet the goal of preventing and treating Alzheimer’s disease by 2025. That is why my colleagues, Senator Stabenow, Senator Collins, Senator Capito, and I introduced the Hope for Alzheimer’s Act, which will allow Medicare beneficiaries to receive comprehensive care-planning services when they are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. That is also why Senator Wyden and I included the Independence at Home Program as part of the Affordable Care Act. This program allows chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries, such as those with Alzheimer’s, to receive primary care services in the comfort of their home. Independence at Home allows teams of doctors and nurses to continue to care for severely ill Medicare patients in their home by bringing the house calls of the yesteryear physicians into the 21st century."
Protecting Seniors’ Access To Medicare Act Of 2015 June 23, 2015
Doug LaMalfa, R-CA
"The IPAB board was going to be very problematic for seniors, and H.R. 1190 is going to be a very important tool in correcting the wrongs of the Affordable Care Act and preserving access to health care. It would indeed have had an unelected board making Medicare spending decisions which, again, would be shifting power to Washington, D.C., and away from that all-important doctor-patient relationship, where it really should be."
