Republicans have just voted to make birth control MORE expensive
So, late last night, the Senate took their first step toward breaking down the Affordable Care Act (AKA ‘Obamacare’) before Donald Trump officially takes office on January 20th.
They votedagainstkeeping their (currently in place) healthcare coverage that funds contraceptives.
Democratic senators tried to introduce amendments to keep in place popular provisions of the act if the law does get repealed but the Republicans senate party all voted against these.
In what can only be described as something you’d expect out of an episode of Black Mirror, the seven-hour talk was a complete political farce.
The amendment that the Republican senate struck down, and that’s particularly striking a chord with women, was the one that meant insurance companies had to also cover the cost of contraception. This means that if Obamacare is eventually revoked, around 55 million American women won’t have copay support for any form of birth control.
