It’s been more than four years since the landmark Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was signed into law. The American people were promised that the massive 2,700-page bill would fix many problems with our broken health care system. We were told that the new law would boost competition, provide more choice, and lower health care costs for millions of Americans.
Women, especially, were targeted in the selling of Obamacare to the public. The Democrats cheerfully said that the health care law would mean access to guaranteed preventive women’s health services. After its passage, it was decided that meant “free” birth control for women.
Yet, today, women are growing increasingly dissatisfied with Obamacare. The latest Kaiser Family Foundation poll found that 52 percent of women view Obamacare unfavorably, the highest disapproval rate from women to date.
