But you don't mind paying for the ED pills.? What about the poor who can't afford the cost? If they get pregnant and have an abortion you complain about "baby" killers-yet you want to do nothing to prevent the pregnancy? If they give birth and have to go on public assistance you complain - paying for contraceptives prevents a lot of issues down the road.

LOL, Carey529 isn't much with mathematics. 75 cents for a condom versus tens of thousands for welfare, free school lunches, juvie courts, medicaid, etc. Gee, lemme sleep on this one.

Bible-thumpin' con, Mike Huckabee, signed state legislation in 2005 that required all health insurance plans providing prescription drug coverage to cover contraceptive drugs and devices as well. According to the Arkansas Times, Huckabee's exemption for religious organizations was actually narrower than the exemption in the Affordable Care Act.

"But like the original federal regulation proposed by Obama, the Arkansas law did not exempt church-affiliated hospitals and universities. It exempts only "religious employers" that are nonprofit organizations whose primary mission is "the inculcation of religious values," and primarily employ people who share the same religion, a standard few Catholic hospitals meet."

LMAO at this women's libido boy, who so quickly threw his own past under the bus for another edition of desperate con suck-up.

And quite possibly, some women may not want to pay to keep your prostate gland healthy or treat it when problems develop, which happens as most men age.

We can't be so self-centered to believe it possible to design a healthcare program that would provide benefits only for those problems that individual participants have. That's not how the traditional heath insurance industry works either.

Enough "me, me, me" think "we."

But it is possible. That's why so many folks lost their health insurance after Obamacare became law. People had insurance plans that covered what they wanted covered and nothing more. The federal government said these were inadequate, so they lost their plans, even though Obama promised multiple times that they would be able to keep their plans.

You're making an emotional appeal based on a false premise.

Even worse, you insult women by suggesting they would "scream and yell" if they had to pay a dollar out of pocket for birth control before you proceed to cry crocodile tears about them being forced to "pay thru the nose" for treatment for breast cancer and heart conditions, of which I can only assume you approve more than birth control.

If you're genuinely concerned about women's healthcare needs, listen to what women have to say, not carry on like they don't know their own healthcare needs. And mostly, don't try to pass false premises as fact just because you have nothing factual to argue your biases.

You're a bit confused--the website isn't what we are discussing here. Computer is fine and I'm my own boss...what is your point?

Why do you keep coveting Clinton's "cigar"? You have so many to choose from back at the Y.

<quoted text>I am a woman who has health concerns not based on birth control and I am trying to figure out how to pay for my meds, because only birth control gets the mandated zero co-pay- try well over $100.00 a month. But Obama brought the women in their 20's and 30's for free birth control. I have also had family members die of heart attacks and breast cancer. So I know the facts do you?
Like most people, I don't know every detail about the ACA law. However, it goes a long way toward making more benefits available to more people at a lower cost by including provisions to reign in the powers of our healthcare industry's major players. It is far from ideal because it retained the unnecessary and costly insurance industry middlemen. We need next to adopt a socialized medicine, single-payer, universal healthcare system.

I don't believe that President Obama bought women in their 20's and 30's with free birth control (I think that's what you meant to say, but if not let me know).

Is your health insurance the same as it was before ACA? Is it better or worse regarding coverage and also cost?
