Obamacare ‘kills’, Democrats have argued for weeks that the House GOP budget, which the House approved today, would hurt women and children. More broadly, Democrats have said Republicans are waging a "war on women," an argument they used in last year's election campaign.

She said women are two and a half times more likely to rely on their spouses for health insurance compared to men, and said business decisions to stop insuring families will fall hardest on women and their children. She then said women and children who find themselves without health insurance would have trouble buying insurance at the state insurance exchanges.
