The never-ending debate on Obamacare

 | 

After Mass on Sunday, some friends were chatting about the political news of the day, and of course, Obamacare came up. (What else?)

Most of us support Obamacare, or, more correctly, the Affordable Care Act. But one person asked in a disapproving tone, "Why should a man or a woman after menopause pay for maternity care? They will never use it, and they don't need it." (For those who may not know, maternity care must be covered in health plans offered on the Obamacare exchanges.)
