    If libs have their way, you will know that number. Someone is already picking up the tab for the $10K tax credit to buy Volts (unborn Conservative kids is my estimate). So essentially it is already upon us. Libs sure as **** ain't paying it.

    My point is where would it stop, like the poster said, we can be morally opposed to just about anything in health care. Health care should be just that, health care for all people who are covered under it. There should be some things considered elective and as such not covered under health care, acupuncture and things of this nature, or elective surgeries like plastic surgery or preexisting conditions.

    The problem here is when you are talking about taking out birth control then health care costs will rise because women have a tendency to get pregnant. Before all this birth control pill business women were constantly getting pregnant and health care HAS to cover that because that is directly related to health and is necessary during pregnancy. After the advent of birth control with insurance companies staring to cover the cost it had a direct impact on insurance companies, for the better, why? because women weren't getting pregnant so darn often! It is why I do not see this as an issue, insurance companies should be happy to provide it, because it is they who will pay if they don't.

    I couldnt care less if an employer picks insurance that covers BC or not but what does matter is if that employer makes that decision solely based on religion. Then its a problem and thats not allowed.

    You could replace BC with anything

    Slick. Are you aware we survived fine for millenia without health insurance ? I am not advocating a return to no health insurance, but your post is just plain stupid. The problem we have is liberal politicians trying to shift accountability from their reckless supporters to the rest of us. Its all about accountability, and not all the other BS you froth. Return accountability to each and every person, and cut this BS of pretending its an offer to those of us who have to spread what we have to those who think they are owed, where we pick what is the least expensive way in which we will be fleeced. Depending on gender, its your dick, or your snatch. Own the outcome. Tough love, but it works.

    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Hi Deuce!

    Last August, I fell and broke my wrist. The pain was excruciating. Not having any health insurance, I went to a local Imaging Center and paid $150 for an X-Ray and reading. Turns out I fractured my radius and tore some muscles and tendons. The X-Ray guy told me that there was nothing to be done but R.I.C.E and immobilization. I went to WalGreens and bought a wrist brace and wore it till things healed. I found out there was nothing to do but wait and heal. I didn't need a doctor to cup my cheek and tell me it would be OK, or give me some fancy over priced pills. Folks today need to man up and stop being such Oprahfied sissies. A lady friend of mine is a nurse, she tells me some parents rush into the clinic every time junior sneezes. If Obama Care stands, it'll end up costing us all hundreds of billions of dollars each and every year. Oy Vie!

    Yes I am quite aware that we survived millenia without health insurance.

    MY POINT: is that it is elective for an employer to even provide insurance (with them paying partial costs) therefore, if they ELECT to provide it as a perk to their employee's then it should be HEALTH insurance. BC SAVES insurance companies MONEY therefore SAVES the employers as well, on more than one front for the employer, less out of work time for their female employee's etc.

    An employer does not have to elect for this. An employee can work somewhere who does, or pay for it out of pocket.

    There are multitude of plans out their for people who wish to pay for insurance, some plans are hospitalization only and goes up from there... some employers only offer the cheaper insurance such as hospitalization only for their junior/less skilled employee's.

    BUT it is ridiculous to say BC is not a benefit to both the employer and the employee, this has nothing to do with liberals, its sheer common sense! And more ridiculous to blame any religion!
