    Unfortunately for the GOP, it is not just this issue or just the women's vote demographic.

    Especially since 2010, the GOP has taken positions that cater to its base and tea party fundamentalists, to the exclusion of blacks, hispanics, seniors, and now women.

    They are going to find in November that it was a losing strategy.

    People don't care at the end of the day, about a whiny tool crying about BC. They care about the economy - Obama's failure; Healthcare, Obama's big failure, and approximately 80 or so broken promises from 3 1/2 years ago. Whether or not that's enough to throw him out, we'll have to see. But the narrative you and the DNC media are pushing is weak sauce.... if that's all ya got, it'll be an interesting election.

    Except that birth control is tied into health care which is tied into the economy.

    So people still do care about it.

    Especially if it increases their chances of getting an unwanted pregnancy they're going to have to pay for one way or another.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    You mean the economy that is getting better that almost went into another Great Depression under the last GOP president? Or, the decreasing health care costs? Not sure how that helps the GOP offset the lost hispanic, senior, and women's votes, but if you say so?

    And the hip bone is connected to the leg bone, which is connected to the foot bone... How much cost in BC is identified in the HealthCare bill and what % of the GDP is that? Is it deficit spending or is it paid for?

    It's not in the top 5 list of issues during this election, nor will it be as much as the DNC and media want it to be.

    The issue isn't getting unwanted pregnancy - people have full access to many different types of OTC and prescribed BC. The issue isn't access, the issue is should it be "free". That doesn't resonate.

The silence can be explained by the fact that, again, on the overnight, programs are played without an actual operator doing the switches in the station, and sometimes a switch is required to avoid a brief silence. Since very few people are listening small stations put up with the dead air rather than hire an operator for the overnight.

    I worked as a DJ at a local radio station once.
    Just look at the source, Stink Progress via the hollywood reporter. It's like pushing goose crap through a tin horn.

    The BC measure in the Health Reform does not provide funding, just a requirement that insurance companies provide coverage of BC. So it doesn't add a dime to the deficit.
