Women losing coverage under Obamacare, too

Republican lawmakers, agitated by even more tweaks to Obamacare's timeline in the coming months and years, reissued their calls Sunday to replace President Obama's health care law with new reforms.
Top administration officials cut backroom deals with the nation's top drug companies to win support for President Obama's health care overhaul, threatening them with steeper taxes if they resisted and promising a better financial deal for the industry if they acquiesced, according to internal documents released Thursday by House Republicans.
Rep. Michael C. Burgess, Texas Republican and frequent critic of Obamacare, said states whose contractors botched the rollouts of the health care exchanges should be pursuing action, particularly because these states received federal money to help set up the exchanges.
"The difficulty will be the extent that they can," he said in an interview.
