    That was the right anwer.

    People try to set these guys up with hypothetical questions about policies which are completely inappropriate.

    More partisan nonsense which inevitably hurts us all because while they're wasting everyone's time, the important issues are NOT being discussed.

    Good for McCain for blowing that nitwit off, says I.

    It wasn't a hypothetical question. Nor do I think it's particularly partisan. It's more of a gender discrimination issue, actually. Viagra is a covered drug... birth control pills aren't. Don't you think a person who wants to be president should be able to answer why that's the case?

    The real answer is the religious right doesn't like birth control pills same as they don't like Acutane so getting Acutane is, according to my dermatoligist friend, an incredible nightmare.

    I agree with you, I do think this is an important issue.

    But why don't they like Acutane?

    That's the first I've ever heard that birth control isn't covered. I've never run across an insurance plan that didn't cover it, and you can get free birth control in any women's clinic..and it is certainly covered by HMOs.

    I have one of the worst healthcare providers in the country Megahealth and they cover birth control pills... I would get some new insurance if you need them and aren't currently covered. That's one good thing about a non-universal healthcare, if something is not covered you can change to one that does cover it. Good Luck.

    Or you can just walk into any family planning clinic and get a year's supply. Not to mention the condons they give out like party favors.

    Did McCain ever vote to require insurance companies to cover Viagra?

    Perhaps he doesn't think either should be required.
