Senators Kaine and Warner Back Save Women’s Preventive Care Act

Virginia’s Democratic Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine have joined 46 other Senate Democrats in introducing the Save Women’s Preventive Care Act.

Senator Tim Kaine says the new legislation would protect coverage for basic health care services for millions of women. “Trumpcare would eliminate essential protections for women created under the affordable care act, and force women to pay more for insurance because of their gender, all to deliver a massive tax cut to the wealthy,” said Kaine.
