Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 11, 2014
Bill Cassidy, R-LA
"Secondly, do we think that politicians should keep the promises made to constituents? Four years ago, supporters of the health care law looked Americans in the eye and said, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it, period.”"
Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Joe Pitts, R-PA
"Congressional Democrats constantly say that they want to change the parts of the ACA that don’t work. If they are sincere about that pledge, they should join us in supporting H.R. 3522. This is a bipartisan bill to protect American workers who will lose their plans under the health care law. As I said last year when we had a similar bill for the individual market cancelations, 39 Democrats joined us and voted for that bill to let Americans keep their plans in the individual market."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3522, Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"H.R. 3522 is offering the American people a legal solution to get out from under the crushing demands of the health care law. The law would grandfather in employer plans that existed before the law went into effect. With the passage of this bill before us today, no employee would have to lose their coverage or have their out-of-pocket costs soar because of the Affordable Care Act."
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."
