Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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
"With regard to younger workers, they are generally healthier but earn less, and they are faced with daunting realities because of the health care law. Specifically, younger workers are forced to pay higher premiums to subsidize coverage for older Americans."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act Of 2014—Motion To Proceed—Continued July 16, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, I come to the floor today to respond to some of the comments by the Senator from Connecticut and specifically with regard to the health care law. I come with an interest because I did part of my medical training in that State, still have many friends who practice medicine in Connecticut, and feel from the comments I hear from them that they see a very different side of the picture than what we hear from the Senator from Connecticut."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act July 16, 2014
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"The Institute of Medicine also recognized the importance of these benefits when it recommended that all FDA-approved contraceptives should be covered without cost-sharing, pursuant to the Women’s Health Amendment to the health care law, which I strongly supported."
Health Care July 15, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, last week I heard the majority leader speak about people who are happy with the President’s health care law. While I agree that some people have been helped by the law, many Americans have been hurt by the law’s destructive side effects. Republicans have given examples of people from all across the country of all ages and in all kinds of situations being harmed by the health care law, and we found that a disproportionate number of those being hurt are women. These are middle-class Americans who work hard, do the right thing, and they just want to care for themselves and their families."
