Show me this guy John's face so I can slap it. I'm sure his Mommy had access to prenatal care! Where is half of this country's sense of social responsibility? As Joe Kennedy quoted from scripture today, we are called to "feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and comfort the sick." Healthcare is not a luxury. Stop. This. Ridiculousness. Now. I'm so disappointed.@johnshimkus #johnshimkus #FUJohnShimkus

"What about men purchasing prenatal care? I'm just...is that not correct? WHAT APP DO YOU USE TO GET BABIES AGAIN CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME?"-John Shimkus #drawadickonit #drawing #dickdoodles #polidicks #johnshimkus

At a hearing markup on Wednesday, Rep. #JohnShimkus (R-IL) suggested that one reason #Republicans object to #Obamacare is that men have to pay for plans that cover #maternity services, such as prenatal care.

The heated exchange happened during a lengthy markup session for the GOP’s Obamacare replacement bill in the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Shimkus was responding to a question from Rep. Michael Doyle (D-PA), who asked a different colleague which mandates in Obamacare he took issue with. “What mandate in the Obamacare bill does he take issue with?” Doyle asked. “Certainly not with pre-existing conditions, or caps on benefits or letting your child stay on the policy until 26, so I’m curious what is it we’re mandating?” “What about men having to purchase #prenatalcare ?” Shimkus butted in. “Is that not correct? And should they?” Doyle appeared flabbergasted by Shimkus’ response. “There’s no such thing as a la carte insurance, John,” he replied.

One of the big changes Obamacare brought to #American insurance was setting a minimum level of coverage, preventing insurance companies from offering skimpy plans that would leave people responsible for large costs when they needed insurance the most. Preventative care, #birthcontrol, and maternal health services are among the essential benefits laid out in Obamacare — which does mean that men have to purchase plans that include maternal care.

That’s part and parcel, however, of how insurance works. You buy insurance to protect against events you don’t expect to occur as well as ones you do — and the system depends on the income from people who don’t need to call on it to pay for the people who do. Take car insurance for example: If everyone who bought #carinsurance had an expensive accident, the system would collapse. Nor do you buy car insurance only if you expect to get in a wreck.

Mandating that everyone pay for maternal care helps bring the costs down for the women who need it — who, typically, got #pregnant with at least a little help from a man. And both men and women benefit from health insurance pooling risks.

Who knew Rock Bottom had this many basements? The GOP keeps digging. In the 27 hours the House Energy and Commerce Committee spent debating Republicans’ Obamacare revision plan, a handful of moments stand out.

This is one of them.

At the start, Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle (Pa.) was talking with Republican Rep. John Shimkus (Ill.) about Shimkus’s objections to the Affordable Care Act’s requirements for health-insurance plans.

As a reminder, former president Barack Obama’s signature 2010 health-care law ordered that all health plans cover certain essential health benefits, such as doctor visits, hospital care and prescription drugs.

The law also required plans to cover pregnancy and childbirth. That’s where the fireworks started in the Energy and Commerce Committee. #uscongress #smh #fighttrump #resist #humanrights #fuckgop #paulryanisapieceofshit #paulryan #maga #mikedoyle #johnshimkus

"Why should men have to pay for prenatal care?"
Until parthenogenesis in humans becomes a thing, I'd hush. 😉

Meet #JohnShimkus. #Shimkus wants to know why men should have to pay for #prenatal #coverage. The #shortanswer is, because all men were #babies once. The #longanswer, because #women have to pay for #insurancecoverage for #viagra and #prostateexams. Oh, and biologically it requires some amount of input from a male to make the aforementioned #baby. #misogyny

51. This guy has a lot to learn from #BBCdad. 🤡#johnshimkus #healthcare #100postcards ✍🏻👊🏻#womensmarch 🏃🏻‍♀️ #yeswecan 👍🏻

@poprageous : "John Shmuckus ( #johnshimkus ) asked why men should have to pay for pre-natal care. This is on top of the career and financial sacrifices women already make to have children. As if birthing the future isn't in all of our interest..." . . . . . . 🤔🤔 I think that kind of sounds opposite of #prolife Mr. Republican⁉ Also,(just a reminder)#womenshealthcare is a #womansright that's already been fought for. Must we really do this again?!
