American Women are screwed

by John Campanario posted Mar 21 2012 3:11PM
Putting aside the Republican's war on women for a moment – a new report from the National Women’s Law Center reveals that health insurance companies are charging women in American an extra billion dollars annually, and it's just good old fashioned gender discrimination.  The report finds that the practice of for-profit health insurers charging women more than men for identical coverage is widespread – and states are doing little to stop the rip-off.  In the states that don’t ban health insurance gender discrimination, 92% of the best-selling plans charge women more than men.

President Obama’s Affordable Care Act would ban this practice nationally – saving women a billion dollars a year.  Unfortunately for women – Republicans are working as hard as they can to repeal Obamacare.
