Obama Says His Daughters Need Free Contraceptives

Speaking before adoring fans in Maryland yesterday, President Obama explained the dire need of Americans for ObamaCare, mentioning that his own daughters will benefit from the law's "free" contraceptives, and saying that many women would not be able to afford them without the new law.

PS: Birth control pills cost $9/month at Target stores . . . but not to worry, ObamaCare also funds abortions.

-- From "Remarks by President Obama on the Affordable Care Act" (ObamaCare) White House Press Release 9/26/13

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, Maryland!  (Applause.) . . .


THE PRESIDENT:  I love you back.  It’s wonderful being here. (Applause.)

. . . the first thing you need to know is this:  If you already have health care, you don’t have to do anything. . . . a lot of you have been enjoying new benefits . . . more than 100 million Americans have gotten free preventive care like mammograms and contraceptive care with no copays.

So tens of millions of Americans are already better off because of the benefits and protections provided by the Affordable Care Act.

. . . And let’s say you’re a young woman . . . I’m interested in this, because I got two daughters, right?  . . . If you buy health care through the [ObamaCare] marketplace, your plan has to cover free checkups, flu shots, contraceptive care.  So you might end up getting more health care each month than you’re paying for the premiums.

From "Obama: ‘Free Contraceptive Care…May Make Up What She’s Spending on Premiums;’ Target: Pill Still $9 Per Month" by Terence P. Jeffrey, 9/25/13

Speaking with former President Bill Clinton yesterday, President Barack Obama suggested that under Obamacare young women may get back more in “free contraceptive care” each month than they pay out in premiums.

This was based on Obama's assumptions that a young woman would in fact be using some contraceptives on a regular monthly basis and that her health-insurance premiums would cost less than her monthly cell phone bill.

However, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation's online "subsidy calculator," which estimates how much people will need to pay next year in Obamacare premiums, a person with a demographic profile approximating the hypothetical woman Obama described, would need to pay more than $200 per month in Obamacare premiums.

As reported last year, the Target store in Northwest Washington, D.C., was selling a month's supply of birth control pills to people without health insurance for just $9.

From "How Obamacare Will Subsidize Abortion" by Chuck Donovan, Charlotte Lozier Institute, posted at National Review Online 9/25/13

[The Multi-State Plans (MSPs)] provision of Obamacare represented a partial victory for progressive forces who favored a national, single-payer system. In its place they accepted a category of health-insurance plans managed by the Office of Personnel Management under contracts with private insurance companies. Unlike the federal employee health plans, which are available only to federal workers and their families, these MSPs are guaranteed a place on each state (and District of Columbia) health-care exchange and will therefore be available to every resident of the United States. By virtue of being offered on the exchanges, premiums paid to purchase these plans will be eligible for the generous scheme of subsidies created under Obamacare.

Passage of MSPs required one other major finesse from Democrats on the Hill. In order to deal with the abortion coverage MSPs might provide, the law stipulated that each state must have at least two MSPs and that at least one of them must be a plan that confines its abortion coverage to situations defined by the Hyde Amendment, which are, to simplify a bit, cases of rape, incest, or where the life of the mother is in danger. While the law provided no specific assurance that the other MSPs (one or possibly many more) would cover elective abortion, it has seemed clear from the start (and blisteringly obvious from observing its past patterns) that the Obama administration would ensure that abortion-covering state plans (let’s call them ASPs) would be available everywhere possible (especially inasmuch as the MSP program might ultimately prove a gateway to single-payer).
