Moochers thank Obama for ‘free’ birth control; Not so free to others
Squee! As Twitchy reported, binders full of moochers stopped hoarding birth control when the nefarious pill-stealer Romney lost the election. Now, they are empowering themselves by groveling at the feet of their birth control sugar daddy master.
Best surprise of the day.. Not having to pay for my birth control..

My paycheck is now less but on the bright side I didn’t have to pay $17 for my birth control #thanksobama

Oh, sweeties. Hundreds taken out … but no $10 per month for birth control and isn’t that really all that matters? You’ve come a long way, baby. Too bad the trail didn’t lead to, you know, math class. The non-deluded try to explain it.
Hey Obama If I pay for my own birth control for $10 a month can I have that tax money back?!?

#obamacare For gals who are touting their ‘free’ birth control. It ain’t free, gals. We captive taxpayers (your friends & neighbors) pay!

#DearRegretfulOVoters Have you realized the drop in your pay offsets your savings on free condoms and birth control pills?
— The Other DaveWeigle (@WeigleDavid) January 7, 2013
Indeed. Perhaps they should peruse more hashtag Teachable Moments. Or, they should talk to the women who are hardest hit; it’s not so ‘free’ for others.

Thanks to Obama I now have to pay 10$ for birth control when it used to be free under my insurance #fuckObamaCare
— Anna Erwin (@anna_elizaabeth) January 7, 2013
@allie_miller1 I’m now paying more for my birth control along with my taxes. I guess I’m not poor enough…
— Amanda (@amndgus) January 4, 2013

— susan (@MorelHunting) January 5, 2013
Wow, no health insurance causes me to have to pay 33.50 for my fucking birth control. Nothing’s going my way these days.

PSA: you still have to pay a copay if you use the NuvaRing. Grumble grumble. But glad y’all are getting free birth control.
— Sarah (@sarahchristine) January 5, 2013
I get my birth control for free now but I pay out the butt for taxes. Bullshiittt.
— Zoey Price (@ZoeeAlexis) January 5, 2013

Pharmacist: It went up to $70 a monthMe: Lady if I wanted to pay that much, I would just have a baby, not be on birth control. #truestory

Hardest hit, besides every single taxpayer who is paying for this “free” birth control? The working poor.
Maybe Sugar Daddy Obama would like to explain some facts to the deluded (ha! Truth is hard). The cost of contraceptives is increasing and will continue to do so. The coverage mandate doesn’t help women; it helps drug companies.
Not only did they get largely what they wanted from Obama’s health-care-reform law (no caps on drug prices, no reimportation from Canada); now, President Obama’s mandate is broadening the market for their products. With drug prices so high, the best way it can increase demand for its products is to get the federal government to mandate payment for it.
When price incentives are gone, costs rise. Guess who that hurts most? That’s right, the working poor who are uninsured and pay out of pocket. It hurts those who are insured, too, of course. As Twitchy has reported extensively, insurance premiums are rising with no end in sight. Why do you think that is? Mandated coverage. Who would have thunk it? Oh, that’s right. Women who think with their lady smarts, not their lady parts.
But, hey, Obama got some sweet, sweet pharmaceutical money for his campaign and was able to lie and use women to his own end. Bonus!
The hits will keep coming.
50 million without health insurance. Will Obama’s market solutions make the problem worse?nytimes.com/2013/01/06/bus…
