Where are you getting this passed on cost malarky, Malarky?

That's the stupidest thing that has been argued here. None of the buildings owned by the Jesuits even sells birth contraceptives. And the area of Md /DC's largest health system owns the hospital and the system accounts for 111 million dollars worth of payroll there, so I believe they could afford to take the hit.
But the argument is absurd.
It's about Catholics not wanting to allow access to a valuable and life saving, and quality of life preserving medication. This medication is covered all the time on insurance and has for 30 years or more.

Bottom line. All available choices for health care should be included or you don't receive tax dollars for grants in research or student loans, and you don't get to call yourself a health care provider. You do however reserve the title of 15th century religious quack.
A woman who is religious and does not wish to take birth control pills does not have to. Contraceptives do however have to be available for birth control and for the preventative therapies they provide.

OK, you seem to believe that Money Fairies will pay the insurance company's, or the government's costs if they decide to, or are forced to cover contraception.

So, there isn't much point in trying to explain per-school level economics for you.

Don't you folks ever get tired of this crap? You Liberal/Marxist folks, do know that their are real problems right? You might take a clue form the lack of information, especially historical and economic information between your ears.

This was a rant, and lemme tell ya', it felt good!
Cool Now, are you ready for your nap?

I love it

However, the very fact that these bills get shot down while bills against women's reproductive issues get serious consideration is disheartening
Well it's great to see that congress has nothing better to do than spend wasted effort on creating pieces of legislation that are nothing more than snarky little snipefests back and forth at each other.

How about instead of wasting tax payer money on spitefully creating a gender war, they actually bring some kind of conversation to the table?

I guess that would be a little too much to ask though, wouldn't it?

You've been watching Congress pursuing ridiculous and spiteful legislative actions for some time now. What do you think the answer is?

I used to think the answer was to comport ourselves like adults and ignore what was vulgar, crass, and beneath us.
I no longer think so.
There are enough idiots in the world that we simply can't allow this misogynistic conservative movement to gain any more traction than it already has.
It's time to roll up our pant legs, wade into the mire in which they wallow like hogs in filth, and get dirty.
