NHDP - ACA Has Saved Women $1.4 Billion On Birth Control Pills

Concord, N.H. – A new report shows that the Affordable Care Act has saved women roughly $1.4 billion on birth control pills alone, yet Kelly Ayotte is still fighting to undermine the ACA’s provision requiring insurance companies to cover birth control free of cost.  
 
Not to mention that Ayotte has repeatedly doubled down on her pledge to try to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which has also helped more than 150,000 New Hampshire women gain access to expanded preventative health services without cost-sharing.
 
“Kelly Ayotte’s sham birth control bill would undermine the very provision of the Affordable Care Act that has saved women more than $1.4 billion on birth control pills alone,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Lizzy Price. “It’s time for Ayotte to give up her blatant political ploy and support efforts to actually expand access to affordable birth control that Democratic Senators are leading.

Burwell, the lawsuit coordinated by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) that challenged the IRS’ rewriting of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. "The Court has allowed the IRS to rewrite a law enacted by Congress in a ruling that undercuts the Constitution’s separation of powers," said CEI’s General Counsel Sam Kazman. > Read more

SCOTUS DISCRIMINATION RULING - JOHN BERLAU


Supreme Court Ruling on Discrimination ‘Disparate Impact’ Could Harm People the Law Intended to Help
 

The Supreme Court has issued its ruling on whether and when ‘disparate impact’ is permitted under the Fair Housing Act; but whether or not disparate impact is good policy is far from settled.
 

The use of disparate impact -- the principle that a practice can be illegal if it affects minorities in a certain way -- is doing great harm to people the civil rights laws were intended to help. > Read more

Gov. Perry on SCOTUS Obamacare Decision 

 

AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's ruling in King v. Burwell:

The Obama Administration has ignored the text of the Affordable Care Act time and again, and today’s ruling allows them to continue to disregard the letter of the law. While I disagree with the ruling, it was never up to the Supreme Court to save us from Obamacare. We need leadership in the White House that recognizes the folly of having to pass a bill to know what’s in it. We need leadership that understands a heavy-handed, one-size-fits-all policy does nothing to help health outcomes for Americans.

With individual premiums up more than 50 percent and nearly 5 million people losing their health plans, Americans deserve better than what we’re getting with Obamacare. It’s time we repealed Obamacare and replaced it with truly affordable, patient centered-health care reform, and I look forward to laying out my ideas on this issue.
