Democratic Rep. Hahn: Healthcare law will result in fewer ‘bad marriages’

Speaking at a Small Business committee hearing on Health and Technology, Hahn offered the anecdotal example of a friend of hers who got involved in relationship to gain access to more affordable healthcare.

“It’s an interesting angle, to talk about people who really only have jobs for the health insurance as being one angle to that,” Hahn said. “I had a friend who got married to the wrong person just so she could have heath insurance. So, we’ll also have a lot of less bad marriages as a result of this.”
