    Hey Pea. Glad you mended.

    This entire argument with all the libtards, here and elsewhere, is so pathetic. The bottom line is they want to know how much more free-stuff they can get via Obamacare and Obama mandates. I don't care if they buy policies that cover contracepton, abortion, birth, etc. Just pay for it in the policy. What is bull**** is that all these parasites, and some have posted here, think that such benefits should be included and paid for by somneone else. Their threat is "its cheaper for you that way".

    **** you libtards. **** you Sandra Fluke, you slut. Do whatever you want. Insure against whatever you want. Just you pay for it.

    That is the silliest thing I've ever heard. As satire, it might actually work.

    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.

    Then why have insruance at all, if we are going to say all things we need are equal, regardless of relationship to health.

    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!
    Bull****. An employer should be able to decide what they offer in all realms, helath insurance and otherwise. Its for the employer to decide what is cheaper for them.
    That's it. If Sandra Fluck wants coverage for contracepton, then let her by a policy that covers such, and pay the premiums. Or let her go out of pocket.

    What is complete manure is liberals thinking that free stuff should include contraception ... etc.

    No. Free stuff needs to end.

What they aren't concerned with is whether employers should be allowed not to cover contraception. We just want to pay our bills and feed our kids. Yet the Democrats are yeowing about contraception? How outta touch is that?
    When you explain to most people that birth control isn't about not getting pregnant, there are many other female issue that require birth control drugs for treatment?

    Pay for your own insurance. That's the debate. Make the chouce to go out-of-pocket, or pay for the level coverage you want in a pool of other folks who pay. All this BS is about liberals thinking they are owed free contraceptive coverage.

    **** that.

    You are less than worth my time in speaking with. Filthy language and insults, this is the cry the ignorant use when they have no argument, not an intellectual who discusses topics intelligently. Goodbye

    Employers should not cheap out on health care. If you offer health care, offer health care. Don't go bargain shopping with peoples lives and health.
