Women will get a lot out of the Affordable Care Act. Here are just some of the ways:

1. As many as 10 million will get coverage in 2014 under Medicaid expansion, and by 2016, thanks to other provisions of the ACA, that number will grow to 13.5 million women.

2. By 2014, all plans sold to individuals will be required to cover maternity care. According to the National Women’s Law Center, 12 percent of those plans include that. Remember when Arizona’s Jon Kyl said he didn’t think his insurance should have to cover pregnancy and childbirth because he would never need it? The ACA destroys the mindset that care needed only by women is of no general concern.

3. More than 20 million women will get expanded coverage of preventive services—prenatal care, mammograms, pap smears, breast-feeding supplies, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, well woman checkups, immunizations, birth control and more.

4. Insurance companies will be barred from dropping women’s coverage when they become pregnant or sick.

5. Companies will be barred from denying coverage because of “pre-existing conditions,” like having had breast cancer, being pregnant (funny how that keeps coming up), having had a Caesarean or being the victim of domestic violence.

6. No more “gender rating”—charging women more for coverage just because they are women. This practice, already banned in some states but permitted in thirty-seven others, costs women a staggering $1 billion a year.

7. Older women will receive expanded preventive services through Medicare, like bone-density screenings for those at risk of osteoporosis.

8. The expansion of Medicaid will cover people who make up to 133 percent of the poverty line (about $31,000 a year for a family of four). True, enabled by the recent Supreme Court decision, at least eight red-state governors have said they will reject it. Let’s see how that works out for them.

9. The birth control provision is mammoth all by itself. Not only will it be costless to the patient; all methods must be covered. That means women will be able to choose the kind of birth control that works best for them, which means they are more likely to use it consistently. In particular, it means insurance must cover the most effective methods, including the IUD, which many plans exclude. At up to $1,000 upfront, it is too expensive for many women to shell out for, even though the IUD is one of the cheaper methods when you consider that it lasts for ten years or more. If anti-choicers really wanted to lower the number of abortions, they would be cheering this huge expansion of access to contraception. But no.

If Romney wins, women can wave goodbye to what Planned Parenthood has called “the single biggest advancement in women’s health in a generation.” Think about that next time someone tells you there’s no difference between the candidates. It’s just not true.

$6,000 is the extra that seniors would have to pay for Medicare, under GOPER Paul Ryan's original budget proposal.

GOP health plan:Zero/let'em die and let big insurance and big pharma keep on screwing us.

You are all fools. The halth care will only put this nation and all 50 states in deeper deft.

All individuals on government assistance programs already. Such as S.S.I. will remain on this program that is the reason why our nation is in deft.

All other money that the nation government has spent, such as the second most money on the miltary is far behind what was spent on government assistance programs.

Any other money spent in our nation does not even begin place a deft on our nation.
__________

What this new health care mainly going to do is put too far more individual on health care that do not qualify for S.S.I. at this time in history.

These additional people that qualify for the health care. That do not already receive health care through their employers will be increasing our national debt along with all fifty states debt so great.

All I continue to hear from individuals every day you are living on my tax dollars. What do you think you will be doing under this new health care bill?

That's right you complained about people being on S.S.I. and Medicaid and Medicare. Are joining the list of people already forced upon government assistance programs by both the United States Of America and all fifty states.

Note: You do not want no health care under this new health care. You do not realize that once you get on to this health care. The government will place a limit of $2,000 cap on your income for a signal person. A $3,000 cap on your income for a couple.

Note: The government will also prevent you from owning private property. As Well the government will prohibit you from earning a income beyond a amount. When that income goes beyond. You will be cut off the new health care. No longer have no health care.

Note: Then the government says under the new health care that any person that dose not have health care or can't afford to pay the hospital and the doctor. Hospital and doctors must take you and provide service for free.

Note: Stop --- Don't forget the new health care requires a person that can't afford health and medical care to obtain government health care. Because you make to much or have personal property that the government says you can nt have to qualify for health care.

Note: You will not qualify for health care under the new health care until you can provide that you have a income below. Your bank checkig and savings account does not exceed the dollar amount. As well you are not receiving a income from a place of employment or otherwise byond the dollar amount. If you are, you will not receive health care under the new health care bill.

Note: This is why so many people never getoff S.S.I. Because if they were to be employed their income is far below the mid wage income. If they make to much money they lose their medicaid and medicare. So everyone remains on S.S.I. even though they can be employed.

Note: Because they have a pre-existing condition they are denied health care. So to receive health care they turn to the government for their health care. Which is Medicaid and Medicare.--- this new health care is government health care that only allows even more people milk the system and put our nation future into debt

Look who's talking.
Thank you very much "Smart Girl" I have you supporting me.

Putting more American citizens on the New Government Health Care .... Just increases the debt far greater.

Majority of United States Of America Citizens will qualify for the new health care. Because their income meets the requirements.

Do you realize how much debt the President Of The United States Of America and our United States Congress will place on our nation.

Note: Even with any discount and tax creits to people in need of health care. Would only place additional debt on top under the new health care bill.

Note: If Hospitals and Doctors were to save on money spent. What Americans are forgetting is:

Putting majority of Americans on this new health care will far greater put more debt on top of the debt already. It will not make the debt less.

Now if no more persons were placed on health care then there is now. Under the new health care .... it was to save cost and lower expense of Hospitals and Doctors little.

Note: This is not how this health care is meant to work. It does not reduce the debt. It only increases the debt by adding additional persons to the government health care. Which means only one thing additional debt. Not less debt.

Note: "Smart Girl" and other fool voters that always reelect the same individual back to political office are the blame why citizens remain on S.S.I. government assistance and other government programs.

Note: Great example of this is:

During the July of 2011 the word from Washington D.C. on Capitol Hill from all U.S. Congressman Offices was that S.S.I. was going end. No checks for S.S.I. would go out to the public.

I, Brian James O'Neill II had so many individuals living within the City Of Olney that only receive S.S.I. as there only souce of income. Didn't know where they were going to live or do. Because they were going to be put out on the streets.

Note: "Smart Girl" I, Brian James O'Neill II did and still to this very day do not worry about S.S.I. ending. Because when it ends it will not have no effect on me. Because majority of my income is not S.S.I.

Note: It is money that I, Brian James O'Neill II and my employers payed into when employed in New York. In addition to money my parent pay tax money for me and my other family members. That's where my money comes from.

Note: I only get $100.00 S.S.I. a month. Few years ago all money that I had received from S.S.I. back in New York and the State of Illinois was paid back to the tax payers.

The government then after provided me with my back payment what was left after paying back the tax payers.

Note: "Smart Girl" and others complain about me.

While they never complain about no one else in the City Of Olney, Richland County, State Of Illinois or any where in the United States Of America living on S.S.I. being their only souce of income that amounts between $700 Dollars and some person receive even more. It's all S.S.I.

To this day now I always wanted to know why on't they complain about there own family members , friends, as well others in this community living on S.S.I.

Note: Then Last fall the U.S. Congress decided to not S.S.I. so they would be reelected back ino office. Not just that, but every person received increase in there S.S.I. and Social Security Checks in January onward in this year 2012.

Note: After the U.S. Government was going to shut down S.S.I. all togeher. Placing majority to almost every person with a disability plus on on the streets.

While I, Brian James O'Neill II would continue to live where I am. Because the majority of my income that I receive is money I earned and paed into along with my parents.

Note:$100.00 Dollars dose not effect my life.

Look who's talking.
Do you know that SSI,SSD. and SS recipeants pay 6.4% of there monthly benifits for their medicare and 20% copayments for drs and meds. So stop saying asstance they are programs that are paid into by you and your employer in the event you become disabled. You would not cry to much if you cut your leg off at work and need these programs. SS is a money maker. The reason it is near broke. Clinton balanced the national debt with SS profit and now every year the profit SS make is turned over to the general fund to help support the other programs of goverment. Food stamps where started by Nixon who was tired of watching Americans starve while America was feeding the rest of the world for free.

It's you that's stupid. If you had any brains "Smart Girl" you should had notice that our U.S. House Of Representative has been in the U.S. Congress fora long time.

Note: All U.S. House Members are reelected every two years. So that means the voters only complain about individuals being on S.S.I. Because voters like "Smart Girl" do not want to take the blame for people being on S.S.I.

Note: "Smart Girl" and every person needs to stop reelecting the same people back to political office. Every time "Smart Girl" reelects same persons back to the United States House Of Representatives. The same old thing will continue. People will remain on S.S.I. never get off the system.

Note: What "Smart Girl" and all others will not tell you is this:

That the only reason why the U.S. House Of Representive members in the U.S. Congress decided to not end S.S.I. was, if they ended S.S.I. program these U.S. Congressman and U.S. Congress women would not be reelected back to the U.S. Cogress.

Note: Each and every U.S. Congressional Member uses S.S.I. as their main purpose to be reelected back to the U.S. Congress.

Note: Unless the majority or greater percentage of voters cast ballots against all or majority of these U.S. Congressional Members to replace them.

Note: There will come a point that the U.S. Congress and the President Of the United States will have no choice, but to shut down S.S.I. and Health Care all together. When that happens majority of citizens will be out on the streets.

Note: Almost all persons on S.S.I. and ther government assistanst programs have no education. Will have no were to turn to get a job.

Note: I, Brian James O'Neill II do not have to worry about that! I have a B.S. College Degree with 3.75 Grade Point Average. I am a Honor Student. So Much more.
