Seriously. Birth costs A LOT of money. The average household can hardly afford the crazy prices we have in America, and the gop wants to change medicaid coverage for births.. Why?

Seriously. Looking for some consistency - do you want people to be able to have kids, or do you want more abortions sought out because a birth can literally bankrupt someone if no aid is given?

The gop seriously makes me frustrated sometimes.

Reddit post that has me upset

What are you snivelin' about?

The last time I went to the hospital, they tried to charge me almost $9K for an outpatient surgery. They wound up gettin' paid something close to $3K.

That's what you should be complaining about. That some damn care facility can 'arbitrarily' charge you.

Rubbers are cheaper than both abortion and childbirth.

Just sayin.

I got charged $34,000 for an appendectomy a little over a month ago. The cost of medical procedures is insane!

Are you suggesting that if a pregnant woman goes into labor, a hospital will refuse to help her if she can't pay for it?

If thats not the case, then you are not making a moral argument, but a finacial one.

In which case, how can you justify stealing other peoples money to pay for other peoples labor costs?

If they cave to pressure from Democrats, and refuse to repeal ObamaCare, I will want them to go to hell too!

I think that you might be misunderstanding.

The new bill only removes the REQUIREMENT that health plans include maternity. It does not say that you can not get a health plan that includes maternity.

This is a good move. Obamacare had a stupid requirement that ALL plans include maternity. This meant that a single man or an older couple would need to pay for a plan that includes maternity. With the new policy, there will be less expensive plans available that do not include maternity coverage for those that do not need it. We will have a choice again. This is just putting things back the way that they were before.

I can't believe the OP I just read. Everyone has been saying ATS is nothing but an alt-right echo chamber.

Anyway, it might help if you gave a link or explained exactly what they want to change that will effect the cost of having a baby.

Close to 50% of births are covered by medicaid.

But, this is the same party that would outlaw abortions if they could.

GOP is inconsistent and inconsiderate all at once.

Supposedly they want to cut medicaid as well source

I paid off all my medical bills a free weeks ago.
Today in the mail I got a letter saying I still owe them money, and if I pay it this week they'll cut my bill in half.
That tells me they overcharge by double in the first place, if not more.

Yep...

I was pissed because after my last one was born my wife had her tubes tied and we still had to pay maternity....and it wasn't cheap.

I think the bigger issue is the providers charges and the pharma lobbying. If those were brought to reasonable prices then health insurance would also decrease.

To stop overpopulation, preferably by those who might be considered undesirable?

Just spitballing.



Edit: My bad for responding to the OP and not the news.

Hit me with the negative stick. Oh wait, that can't happen.

Mods, make a negative stick!!!

I do not see in your source where it says anything about specifically cutting maternity care from Medicare. Can you please point that out?

Using 2 RedZit posts for sources.

I want people to have kids..dare I say it... when they can afford them and be responsible. When I was in my 20s the last thing I needed was a kid or two or five. If you can hardly make it without kids, don't have them yet!!

I waited until I was 38, wife was 31... Another thing people can do is wait until they have a job that provides healthcare like 70% of the workforce has today... Timing is everything and if all you got is medicaid I would say that is bad timing....geez

Honestly, I sort of like the way this Healthcare debate is going.

While the GOP is trying to trash Obamacare and come up with it's own HC plan, more and more people are getting keen on the idea of a universal system. Even some on the Right.

That is where we are going to end up anyway. A UHC system. This is just political charades delaying the inevitable, but it's pushing people to look at the benefits of a UHC system.
