Entry Title Date
President’S Health Care Law November 19, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Madam President, this past Saturday the open enrollment period for the Obama health care law opened in terms of the health care exchange. People who bought health insurance through or through their State’s exchange are finally allowed to see how much their insurance is going to cost next year. Things were pushed back beyond the election so people wouldn’t be able to find out before the election what it was going to cost. So the Obama administration had all of this information for awhile, but they intentionally kept it secret until after election day. Now people get to see the prices, and many people across the country are absolutely in shock at the increased costs of the health care law."
Child Care And Development Block Grant Of 2014—Resumed November 13, 2014
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Senator Brown, please vote no to repeal the health care law. My family and friends appreciate the added benefits we are getting from the current health care law. My son’s fiancee is currently finishing her graduate degree."
Jonathan Gruber’S Statements Are Shocking But Not Surprising November 12, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, in 2009, President-elect Obama wrote a memo that his Presidency will usher in an unprecedented level of openness. But this week, it was revealed that the lead architect for the Affordable Care Act, Jonathan Gruber, capitalized on—his words now—the stupidity of the American people in passing the health care law. He further went on to say the lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and was critical to passing the law."
Health Care September 17, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"A GAO report released on Tuesday confirmed that people who had had concerns about this bill because it would use Federal funding for the first time to lead to taxpayer-funded abortions—and many of my colleagues in the House voted for this and voted for it only because President Obama repeatedly promised that the health care law would not lead to American tax dollars being used for this purpose. It is a longstanding policy. It is a policy that Americans have strongly supported for a long time. Unfortunately, this new report by the government itself indicates that was one more government promise not kept."
Health Care September 16, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Mr. President, I come to the floor today, as Republicans have come to the floor week after week ever since the President’s health care law was passed. I have many concerns about the way this health care law is impacting families in my home State of Wyoming as well as families all across the country. In one State after another, people are feeling the devastating side effects of the health care law."
