under the Affordable Care Act, private insurers are required to include a series of health care benefits in every plan. These protections guarantee, for example, that American women will have maternity care if they need it.

“Then you can figure out a way to change the state that you live in,” Mulvaney replied.
Wagner asked if Mulvaney meant that people should move.
“No, they can try to change their own state legislatures and their state laws,” he responded.
