    This isn't about saving money for employers or insurance companies. That's just the excuse the social conservatives are using.

    Just more rightwing attempts to piss in your hair and convince you it's raining. Same ****, different day.

    Smart people see through this.
    Since when does the alternative to not funding BCP automatically mean paying for mutliple births?

    Medical insurance has to cover pregnancy and birth. It's mandatory.

    I understand that. Not paying for BCP doesn't automatically default to paying for multiple births, which a poster stated. That's my point. That would be like saying something like...unless my auto insurance pays for my oil changes, they will have to pay for a new engine.

    I understand that you are so certain.

    Unfortunately the people that actually studied the issue (and the studies quoted by Obama) are not quite so certain.

    Additionally, the insurance companies have indicated there will not be any savings and most of them indicated it will actually cost them more.

    It seems that your certainty is really just based on your ideology.

    Providing free BC to everyone very well could be more expensive per year for the insurance company then the number of additional births created by not providing free BC to everyone.

    It does over the long haul if the people cannot afford their birth control prescription.

    Auto insurance has nothing to do with new engines or oil changes, btw.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I never said that... but you bring up a good point:

    But, but, but... it's so expensive that no one could ever afford it unless insurance gives it to them for free!11!1!1!11!!!!!!!

    That's my point. Health insurance has nothing to do with BCP. Not everyone has insurance that pays for BCP.

    That is largely your opinion. However, it may surprise you that there are folks who disagree.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
