There is a cost to you and society for any decision made. The thing about this policy requiring INSURANCE companies to cover the cost of birth control pills....just like they do for limp dick pills....is that it provides an added amount of control and makes it easier for women to decide when the right time for them to have a child. Our biology isn't keeping up with the advancement of modern society. Sure when you worked at a farm and got married at 15 popping out 10 kids before the age of 25 was pretty useful.
Now not so much!

Tucker, it is not nonsense. The nonsense is the claim that it is cost neutral, it is not, the numbers do not hold up which is why it isn't covered by every company to begin with.As far as the mandate goes, I'm relatively agnostic, to be honest. My biggest issue in this debate is the nonsense about having to pay for other people's contraception based on that mandate. The money that goes into the pool is not your money anymore. You are paying for something you receive, which is healthcare coverage, not for what others receive. That's just a fact of life.
Not a proper analogy. Tucker, let me explain it again, when you join a risk pool you agree to covered/not covered and you also agree to whatever conditions are contained in the policy. This means you pay to be risked with everyone else agreeing to be in the pool and you pay for the pool, meaning whatever liabilities the company incurs. So no matter what Obama and Sebilius claim YES you do pay for a birth control mandate.For example, if I gave you $20 for a service that you provided me, I can't say that I paid for whatever you spend that money on. I spent my money on the service which you provided me. End of story. It's no longer my money, it's your money.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
