GOP Congresswoman Renee Ellmers Asks HHS Chief Sebelius Why Single Men Need Maternity Coverage
Representative Renee Ellmers to Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius, “To the best of your knowledge, has a man ever delivered a baby?”
Here is more of the exchange
Sebelius: “The insurance policy has benefits whether you use them or not, and one of the benefits will be maternity coverage, mental health coverage, domestic violence coverage.”
Ellmers: “And that is why health care premiums are increasing, because we’re forcing them to buy things they will never need. Thank you, madam chairman.”
Sebelius: “The individual policies cover families. Men often do need maternity coverage for their spouses and for their families, yes.”
Ellmers: “A single male age 32 does not need maternity coverage. To the best of your knowledge has a man ever delivered a baby?”

In the name of equality, women are also forced to pay for health services under new Obamacare regulations that are specific to men. For example, prostate exams.
The bottom line: The Obamacare one size fits all model forces people to pay for coverage they do not need and will never use.

First thing I'm going to do after my ObamaCare kicks in is get a mammogram and see my OB/GYN.
