Obama Says Public Doesn’t Know Benefits of His Health Care Law
Bloomberg Record

President Barack Obama gathered women and their families at the White House two days before Mother’s Day to promote benefits in his signature health care law such as free mammograms and birth control. “Moms take care of us,” Obama said at the White House today. Women “know the unfairness of being charged more for their health care just because they are a woman,” and the law makes that illegal, he said. One part of the law bans gender discrimination in insurance premiums.
