An estimated 7 million will be able to receive premium support when enrolling in plans on the new exchanges.

The Affordable Care Act requires an expansion of Medicaid that would increase the percentage of U.S. women with health insurance, with the anticipated benefit of improved health.

The Affordable Care Act improves coverage for important preventive services and maternity care, promotes higher quality care for older women, and bans health insurers from requiring women to pay more for the same insurance coverage as men.

 

Why aren’t members of the media asking certain elected officials why they are against these provisions? Why don’t we hear questions like,

Congresswoman, Congressman, or Representative X, why are you against:

  1. health coverage for poor people,
  2. better coverage for women and men,
  3. expanded mental health benefits (as you all wanted after Newtown) and
  4. improved prescription drug and maternity coverage to help poor women and poor mothers?

Why not ask your own House Congressmembers this question!
