Texas bill encourages firms to violate Obamacare

(RT) A Texas legislator introduced a state bill that would provide tax breaks to companies who intentionally violate Obama’s health care act by refusing to cover emergency contraception.

The tax break would be the same amount as the federal fine that companies are required to pay for violating the Affordable Health Care Act, or the total amount that companies pay in state taxes.

Freshman state Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R) introduced the bill in the Texas House of Representatives on Thursday in an attempt to protest the implementation of what critics refer to as “Obamacare”. The health care legislation requires company health insurance plans to fully cover employees’ contraception costs – including emergency contraception like the morning-after pill.
