Obama Punks the GOP on Contraception

"After two solid weeks of Republicans rapidly escalating attacks on contraception access under the banner of "religous freedom," Obama finally announced what the White House is proposing an accomodation of religiously affiliated employers who don't want to offer birth control coverage as part of their insurance plans. In those situations, the insurance companies will have to reach out directly to employees and offer contraception coverage for free, without going through the employer. Insurance companies are down with the plan, because as Matt Yglesias explained at Moneybox, contraception actually saves insurance companies money, since it's cheaper than abortion and far cheaper than childbirth. Because the insurance companies have to reach out to employees directly, there's very little danger of women not getting coverage because they are unaware they're eligible."

Aunk's commentary:

In stead of the real political issue like jobs, that they are loosing, they come up with these distractions, to their own determent. So now 90% of woman won't vote Republican. You would think that they would wise up to when the President is giving them enough rope to hang themselves. Remember Donald Trump I mean how many times do you have to get punked to wake up. And if you are asleep, why would we want you running the country at this important time.
