“The areas that call for increased spending [by patients] and cut backs of services are women’s issues,” said Rep. Maloney. “They are going back to treating pregnancy as a pre-existing condition. I can’t tell you…before the [Affordable Care Act] how many people came to see me and couldn’t get health insurance because they were pregnant.”
