Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
50Th Anniversary Of Medicare And Medicaid July 30, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Mr. President, Republicans called it “the beginning of socialized medicine.” The Wall Street Journal accused Democrats and the President of “politicking with a nation’s health.” One Republican Senator called the health care law “brazen socialism.”"
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Continued July 28, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, every day it seems as though Americans are hearing more and more news about how badly ObamaCare is failing. Some of the latest headlines have had to do with just how expensive health insurance is going to be next year under the President’s health care law. The price increases that are being reported are truly staggering. Insurance companies are planning to raise rates 20 percent, 30 percent, even 40 percent on some of their plans, and they say it is because of the health care law."
King V. Burwell Decision June 22, 2015
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"We know what the health care law has meant in Ohio and across the country. Patients can’t be dropped from coverage or charged higher rates just because they got sick. Also, 97,000 young Ohioans have been able to stay on their parents’ health insurance until their 26th birthday, giving them the chance to focus on careers, education, and future plans. Lifetime insurance caps are no longer bankrupting people with chronic conditions. Those with preexisting conditions, such as children with diabetes and asthma, will no longer be denied coverage or charged higher premiums."
Obamacare June 17, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"This is under the President’s health care law—medical bill shock; surprises in health-law bills. The article tells the story of Angela Giboney from Mill Creek, WA—Washington State. She has insurance through the State ObamaCare exchange. She has ObamaCare, make no mistake about it. When she went to have a mammogram, it turned out the place that did the screening was outside her network, so she got a bill for $932. President Obama promised that people would pay less under the health care law. Instead, people all across the country are getting stuck with surprise bills because of these narrow networks. And in spite of that, their premiums are going to jump again next year."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 4, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"The Democrats have their head in the sand about the health care law. We can pick up Investor’s Business Daily, Monday, June 1: “ObamaCare Deductibles Soaring to $6,500 for Silver-Level Plan.”"
