“Just four years later, [Rick Perry’s book On My Honor, about the Boy Scouts] seems almost anachronistic. And it cements Perry’s legacy in one respect: as a prominent politician who doubled down on gay bashing as the nation rapidly moved the other way.”

With a sufficient amount of correlation, causation is a reasonable conclusion.

    I have a 6 week old and have not returned to work, but I use my ACA provided breast pump 6-7 times a day. My son will not nurse, so this is the only way for him to get breast milk. I don’t have a medela like the author of the post linked, but an equivalent pump that lists for more than $300. I would not have been able to get such a good pump, but thanks to the ACA, the cost of my pump was covered 100% by insurance.
