    If it's covered by private insurance, it's not free Birth control. They are paying for it in their premiums.

    I don't get it. All that does is point out that Fluke was honest about the fact that Georgetown covered it. How is that a negative?

    Apparently that is not always the case, which is the point.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I'm not sure why they get spouting this stuff. Did someone on fox pass along this false point to try and pound?

    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.

    I know. What was I thinking? I'm addicted to logic I guess. Not much fun at parties. My bad.

    Free, in this case, is about perception. They are not paying directly for the birth control, which will cause it to be seen as free by the consumer.

    The rest of us, even those that don't use BC, will be giving them money to subsidize that prescription and bring it to a nearly free actual cost.

    Actually, it is always the case. All insurance companies cover BC to prevent cysts and the like, including Georgetown University. This is not to say a rare mistake may not happen. Tightening up the rules related to BC to prevent cysts would be wonderful. Forcing religious orgs that believe BC as contraception/abortion is against their religion, not quite so wonderful.

    Actually, The Blaze article says they may be covered, not that they are covered. The title is: "GEORGETOWN’S POLICY MAY COVER CONTRACEPTIVES AFTER ALL" And there is no evidence given they are.

    According to Fluke's own testimony, Georgetown insurance covers contraception for medical issues.

    More of her testimony:


    “In 65% of the cases at our school, our female students were interrogated by insurance representatives and university medical staff about why they needed prescription and whether they were lying about their symptoms.

    “For my friend and 20% of the women in her situation, she never got the insurance company to cover her prescription. Despite verifications of her illness from her doctor, her claim was denied repeatedly on the assumption that she really wanted birth control to prevent pregnancy. She’s gay. So clearly polycystic ovarian syndrome was a much more urgent concern than accidental pregnancy for her.

    “After months paying over $100 out-of-pocket, she just couldn’t afford her medication anymore, and she had to stop taking it.

    “I learned about all of this when I walked out of a test and got a message from her that in the middle of the night in her final exam period she’d been in the emergency room. She’d been there all night in just terrible, excruciating pain. She wrote to me, ‘It was so painful I’d woke up thinking I’ve been shot.’

    “Without her taking the birth control, a massive cyst the size of a tennis ball had grown on her ovary. She had to have surgery to remove her entire ovary as a result.
