    I hope that this is not too repetitive of earliar posts.

    I am one of tens of millions of seniors that take pills every day, which are not free of
    charge, that are needed to keep me ALIVE! How can Ms. Fluke feel entitled to have
    others pay for pills that allow her to be on her back all day, while others are forced to
    pay for life-sustaining medication?

    Good question. Sometimes birth control jas a legit medical purpose, just like viagra and they should be covered. Buy if used for fun , it should be on you dime and not covered

    So Medicare for example should only cover lifesaving healthcare, and not quality of life type healthcare?

    You almost gotta laugh. President Hussein was raised in an affluent environment and so was his wife but for some reason they think they need to lie to Americans to perpetuate a socialist class warfare agenda. Apparently Ms Fluke can afford the tuition to a fine institute of higher learning but she needs to lie to Americans and claim she can't afford condoms. She must be a busy woman and democrats must be the stupidest faction of American culture..

    The Democrat model is to make people dependent on the government, sadly, because of Democrat policies many simply can't survive without government having control over them anymore.

    Medicare is one of the reasons why our health care costs are so high.

    No, US healthcare costs are the reason our healthcare costs are so high. Many countries have Medicare-similar healthcare programs and pay half what we pay for healthcare.

    This must be some sort of fluke happenstance.
