Warren Hits Sen. Brown Over Bill to Reverse Birth-Control Mandate - the Hill’s Blog Briefing Room
Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren released a new radio ad critical of congressional Republicans — including her opponent, incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) — for the recent debate over contraceptive access.
The ad largely echoes comments Warren made last week as she and Brown traded lobs over the senator’s support for a Republican-backed bill that sought to overturn an Obama administration regulation that required employers to provide coverage for contraception, regardless of their religious beliefs. The bill would allow employers to deny coverage for any service an employer felt ran contrary to their moral beliefs.
“This is a completely new attack that threatens everyone’s health care,” Warren said in a statement last Wednesday. “This bill would allow any employer or insurance company to refuse to cover anyone for anything.”
