Congressman Cohen: Affordable Care Act Helps Tennesseans
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) today spoke on the House floor pointing out the strength of the Affordable Care Act in Tennessee and the dangers of repealing the law. A full video of Congressman Cohen’s remarks can be found here. “In Tennessee, more than 236,000 enrolled in a healthcare plan under the Affordable Care Act during the latest open enrollment period. That’s more than 236,000 people who, if this bill becomes law, will not have healthcare or could have more expensive healthcare,” said Congressman Cohen. “And if you defund Planned Parenthood, you stop poor people, some of whom are in Tennessee’s 9th district, from receiving preventative healthcare such as mammograms, HIV testing, and planned birth control programs. This is a bad bill taking healthcare away from people who need it, otherwise can’t afford it, and otherwise who wouldn’t get it.” Yesterday, the Department of Health and Human Services released the latest figures for enrollment

The amendment was defeated by a vote of 158 to 211.  A video of Congressman Cohen’s floor speech can be found here. “We should be making it easier for victims to recover against terrorists, not harder.” said Congressman Cohen.  “It is hard enough as it is to pursue class actions because of years of efforts by industry to make it more and more difficult to do so. It is just wrong to place the heightened burdens of this bill [H.R. 1927] on terrorism victims who seek justice for the acts committed against them.” The Fairness in Class Action Litigation, H.R. 1927, would limit
