Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) during a press conference this morning.Boxer spoke alongside Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) to slam GOP lawmakers for continuing to try and repeal or delay the healthcare law as part of legislation to keep the government running beyond the end of this month.Hirono outlined the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, citing the only benefit that had been removed was the Women’s Health amendment.
