House Democrats Introduce New Coverage Bill Health Affairs

1. First, HR 1425 would expand the availability of PTCs to eligible individuals whose income is above 400 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL). Second, it would make PTCs more generous by reducing the level of income that an individual must contribute towards their health insurance premiums. Third, the bill would extend access to PTCs to those who are currently ineligible for subsidies because of the “family glitch.” Currently, PTCs are only available to individuals whose annual income is between 100 and 400 percent FPL (between about $12,760 and $51,040). PTCs are available on a sliding scale basis, meaning subsidies are more generous at lower income levels. By ending eligibility at 400 percent FPL, the ACA has created a “subsidy cliff” for individuals whose income is above this level. Lack of subsidies has resulted in affordability challenges for many middle-income consumers and led to coverage losses. Among this unsubsidized population, middle-class older adults living in rura...

Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938: Maximum Struggle for a

1. The Supreme Court had been one of the major obstacles to wage-hour and child-labor laws. Among notable cases is the 1918 case of Hammer v. Dagenhart in which the Court by one vote held unconstitutional a Federal child-labor law. Similarly in Adkins v. Children's Hospital in 1923, the Court by a narrow margin voided the District of Columbia law that set minimum wages for women. During the 1930's, the Court's action on social legislation was even more devastating.3 New Deal promise. In 1933, under the "New Deal" program, Roosevelt's advisers developed a National Industrial Recovery Act (NRA).4 The act suspended antitrust laws so that industries could enforce fair-trade codes resulting in less competition and higher wages.

Constitutional Topic: How a Bill Becomes a Law The U.S

1. Submitting a Bill. Bills originate from several different sources, but primarily from individual members of Congress. In addition, bills might be brought to a member by a constituent or by a group of constituents; a bill can be submitted to a member of Congress by one or more state legislatures; or the President or his administration might suggest a bill.
2. Committees. Both houses of Congress, the House and the Senate, are divided into large groups called Committees, with most committees divided yet again into Subcommittees.
3. House Procedure. In the House, a bill approved by a committee is referred to the whole House. Most are then referred to the so-called Committee of the Whole, which consists of all members of the House, but with a much lower quorum requirement.
4. Senate Procedure. After a Senate committee refers a bill to the full Senate, it can take one of two main roads. In some cases, with emergency or other non-controversial bills, a simple voice vote is taken of the Senate, and the bill either passes or fails.
5. Conference. Once a bill leaves the House and the Senate, it must be checked. If anything in the two versions of the bill differ, in any way (even in something as minor as punctuation), the bill must be reconciled.
6. On to the President. Regardless of how it leaves the Congress, once it does, it goes to the President for his signature. Note that the legislative process does not operate in a vacuum, and the President, or his staff, has been tracking bills that pass the Congress.
7. The Bill Becomes Law. Officially, after the President signs the bill, 10 days passes without a signature, or after a veto override, the bill is considered law.
