Fluke enjoyed a "lovely trip to Barcelona" before asking for free birth control.

    Well, a lot of conservatives here seem to be confused, and think that Fluke was asking for "free" birth control FOR HERSELF.

    She was not, of course. Which means how much money Fluke makes is completely irrelevant. I know that, you know that, but apparently conservatives haven't figured it out.

    Of course you don't.....

    So, here it is: If you can afford to travel to Spain, you can afford to buy your own fucking birth control.

    There ya go.

    fucking naive partisan asshole.

    Read her testimony. If that is too difficult for you, then listen to it.

    Then make a comment.

    Scumbag.

    Seems odd doesnt it?

    Conservatives seem to think that people go to congress to ask for legislation that applies only to themselves

    She never asked for free birth control.

    My girlfriend and I were having a good laugh this morning over rightwingers believing things that are patently false.

    As someone once said,

    there's what people want to believe, and what people like to believe,

    and then there's the truth.

    Ah, yes...the old "it's not me, but a FRIEND that I know" story? So you've got spoiled little rich girl, Ms. Fluke who jets off for expensive vacations to Italy but then goes in front of Congress to wail about how her FRIEND can't afford her monthly prescription for birth control pills. Gee, if you're that concerned about it, Sandra...why don't you help your FRIEND out with a little cash? Oh, no...you need that money for your vacations so you think that someone who doesn't know your FRIEND should pony up the money to keep those pills coming...namely, we taxpayers? Does the term "limo liberal" seem appropriate here? Nice to know that Sandra will undoubtably be spending the next twenty or so years litagating what we taxpayers should be liable for when it comes to HER pet projects while she takes vacations to other swell spots.

    What I find even MORE amusing is that if you read Ms. Flukes testimony carefully you'll see that she admits that her friend with ovarian cysts IS covered by the Georgetown health plan because it isn't considered birth control. If that's the case...then why even bring her up? Oh, because she "represents" women that might not be covered elsewhere? Are you kidding me? If there ARE women elsewhere that aren't covered for that then please NAME THEM and not your friend!!!
