“Today’s decision jeopardizes women’s access to essential health care. Employers have no business intruding in the private health care decisions women make with their doctors. This ruling ignores the scientific evidence showing that the health security of millions of American women is strengthened by access to these crucial services,” Reid said. “If the Supreme Court will not protect women’s access to health care, then Democrats will. We will continue to fight to preserve women’s access to contraceptive coverage and keep bosses out of the examination room.”
This is why I think health care is broken at its very core. Health insurance should be paid for by the individual. This would require it becoming much cheaper. I couldn’t afford the coverage I have if my employer wasn’t footing the bill. The person that holds the purse strings, controls the content. And whether it’s my employer or the government, I’m relying on their benevolence to provide me with a service. Either one could change their minds at any time and I have no control over it.
