You think a universal health plan should cover everything from nose and boob jobs to gender reassignment surgery. I would rather not have to pay higher premiums for your cosmetic micro-phallus treatments.

You're dying from cancer? Fine. The government will pay for your chemo.
When you testify before congress about the apocalyptic horrors of taking responsibility for your own birth control, you've lost me.

Anyway, I like you. And because I like you, I feel compelled to tell you that white knighting Sandra Fluke will not lead to her farking you. And even if she did fark you, she'd scrape the baby out of her uterus and make you pay for the procedure.

She's a 30-year-old law student whose friend lost her goddamn ovaries because of an illness that could have been treated by hormonal birth control blocked by the policies not of the insurance company but of the school.

TacoBeelzebub: The whole thing was just so ridiculous. Fluke was not asking for FREE/TAX-PAYER SUBSIDIZED birth control. She was asking that birth control be COVERED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANIES like boner pills are. Women would still have to pay a co-payment on the BC pills just like regular perscriptions and that's fine, they have no problem doing that.

Why does the GOP have this need to control women's sexuality? Are they scared of it?

skullkrusher: That is malfeasance on the part of the insurance company. That should absolutely be addressed.


Haha, you're funny.

The insurance company will, when called on it, simply go "Ooops! You're right, our bad, here's the money for the prescription, bye!" And there's likely very little the person can do. Even if they get paid for the loss of their ovary or other issues, no one high up (who PUTS the policies in place) will be punished. Since apparently, a corporate 'person' can claim "Oh my god, I had no idea what my hand was doing when I stole that money! My hand totally acted on its own, and you can't really give me a serious punishment in any way."

Most of the time, they just hope people get tired of fighting it and don't go as far as they can, eat the loss, and the insurance company gets money for free. And, hey, most people have their health insurance through their school, their work, or their parents! It's not like they're gonna be *able* to switch companies. They just have to find the riiiggghhht balance of screwing their customers over, so the corporation/school doesn't switch away from them.

I spent an entire *year* getting a dental insurance company (Delta Dental) to pay for a procedure (filling) that was *ABSOLUTELY* covered by my insurance. First claim: I had used up/gone over the ammount they had to pay. Got all the bills from the dentist's office (the only one I had visited since I got the insurance), showed them this was not true (and that the procedure wouldn't have taken me over).

THEN they apparently started 'not getting' the insurance claims. It took my dentist's office filing 5 times, plus me calling the *VP OF THE COMPANY*, to get them to @#%# pay the bill.
(It was only $200, but I'm a grad student: That is not an amount I could shrug off. Also, it was the principal of the thing).

Thankfully, my school switched away from them to Aetna, in part due to a lot of students complaining. (Apparently, the Student Health Insurance office at my school takes their job *REALLY* seriously, and does very, very well. I'm fortunate in that regard. Many people aren't.)

This was probably the most embarrassing part---the Breitbart crowd giving away that they don't know basic things about girls. And using their national megaphone, no less.

It was astonishing to watch Internet people angrily shout, "I never dated a woman" in so many words, without even noticing this implication until it was irretrievably part of the national conversation. It's like they all chiseled their name in a granite monument to dateless wonders because Rush Limbaugh told them to.

The rest of the anti-woman rhetoric made them look like tards, but they really believe that stuff, and probably aren't too mortified about their beliefs being spoken aloud. They may feel bad about that stuff, but it doesn't cast them as basement-dwelling losers.

I know I always feel tremendously immature when I look at the amount that is taken out of my paycheck for health insurance. It always makes me want to go out and screw around indiscriminately. I envy your maturity, being able to pay for your health care 100% out of pocket so that neither your employer nor the federal government bears any part of the cost. It must feel good to be that self-sufficient. I for one am relieved that my insurance premiums and tax dollars will not be put into any pool to pay for your eventual cancer treatments.

That there is an investment that is going to be giving a solid return for decades.

The Democrats just couldn't line up the Fundamentalists in just the right way to make it look like they were trying to deny rights to half of the voting populace. They tried with the anti-abortion movement but even then at its most radical they managed to screw it up; it didn't directly affect potential voters on a day-to-day basis like birth control does.

But Sandra Fluke.....that was the football the GOP willingly carried into their own end zone, and by Rush Limbaugh no less. Their brief victory dance was just delicious to watch. I realized even way back then that this was a story that had legs and as everyone was emitting a gasp I had a smile you couldn't get off my face. It was the beginning of the Great GOP Detonation of 2012.

The part of that whole mess that gave me the most dark humor was Limbaugh's implication that the readson Fluke needs the taxpayers to pay for her birth control is that she's a massive slut who can't afford all the pills she has to use on her own.

So either Limbaugh doesn't know how birth control pills work, or (more likely) he's playing on the fact that the dumbasses who listen to his show don't.
