Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Government Accountability Office Report Confirms Obamacare Funds Abortions September 17, 2014
Randy Hultgren, R-IL
"Clearly, there has been a lack of full disclosure by the administration and the insurance companies who have ignored the law, a law which failed to provide adequate safeguards for the taxpayer."
Insurance Capital Standards Clarification Act Of 2014 September 15, 2014
Carolyn McCarthy, D-NY
"When we are talking about the insurance companies and making it easier to make sure they could do their job and not be treated like a bank, we got the language here on the House side. Again, the Senate side misinterprets some and had the wrong language. Gary Miller and I have been working a year—over a year—to make the corrections that are coming out today."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3522, Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Michael Burgess, R-TX
"I just want to address the issue of the insurance companies."
Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"This is amazing progress, and we should not turn back. That is what the Republicans would have us do with this other repeal of the Affordable Care Act: turn us back to the old days where the insurance companies reigned, where discriminatory practices reigned, and where preexisting conditions were a basis for not getting coverage."
A Tribute To Milwaukee Community Journal’S Dr. Terence N. Thomas Scholarship Annual Brunch July 22, 2014
Gwen Moore, D-WI
"Much of the success of the Milwaukee Community Journal can be attributed to one of its founders and Publisher, Patricia O’Flynn Pattillo. The Milwaukee Community Journal evolved from a publication called the Soul City Shopper, following the 1965 riots in Milwaukee. Insurance companies had refused to pay businesses for damages incurred during the riots. Ms. Pattillo was encouraged by business leaders to assume the role of editor of the publication. She penned a barrage of editorials that eventually pressured the insurance companies to uphold their obligations by paying claims so that repairs could be made and that businesses could reopen. This effort was dubbed The Unity in the Community Campaign; it was very successful and mobilized the entire community."
