Congresswoman Looking into Broader Health Mandate
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 3 March 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 03/03/2012 12:29:29 PM PST by John Semmens

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) says the furor over the President’s declaration that all insurers must offer birth control coverage free-of-charge is “helping highlight a broader divide between those who really care about the welfare of people and those who don’t.”

“Look, 90% of Catholic women use birth control,” Pelosi maintained. “This is a huge majority. In our form of government the majority rules. The President’s executive order requiring insurers to cover the cost of birth control meets the needs of this majority. Those who oppose this are placing the rights of the 10% minority ahead of the rights of the majority. That isn’t right.”

“You know, there is even a bigger majority of the population that eats,” Pelosi pointed out. “Everyone—100%–needs food. Yet, a person’s access to food is contingent upon their ability to pay for it. Even worse, segments of our society exploit this need for profit. Now that we have established the legitimacy of mandating free birth control I think it may be time to look into a similar mandate requiring the producers of food to make it available to all at no out-of-pocket charge. A good diet is every bit as important a health benefit as birth control.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called Pelosi’s suggestion “intriguing.” “In fact, the two mandates could be mutually interactive. The birth control mandate will lead to a reduction in the number of human beings we have to contend with. More contraception, more abortions means fewer mouths to feed. With a smaller pool of recipients, mandating free access to food would be a more manageable proposition.”

In our form of government the majority rules. Yeah, Nancy, but there is this concept called l-i-m-i-t-e-d g-o-v-e-r-n-m-e-n-t, which is prescribed in a thing called the C-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n of the United States. Take a look at it sometime and then ask someone to help you to understand it.

This is at the moment still a satire, but Nancy could easily say something like this any day now.

“Pelosi maintained. “This is a huge majority. In our form of government the majority rules.”

OK Pelousy, you quoted a poll I have one for you, 58% of the public does not want Obamacare. Cite that rule by the majority, you asswipe.

What a crock. People who care about the welfare of people help them to help themselves and your kind don't. Christian Churches (that you would like to see gone) are one way. It's that simple.

If 90% of Catholic women are using Birth Control now , that mean they are paying for it.

Why should we make it free?

There is no free lunch (no pun intended).

WQait a minute, when did the majority start ruling in this country. The Minorities, the Queers, the Atheists. THEY are the rulers in this country.

Pelosi is full of shyt if she thinks the majority rules here.

I must have missed something....I thought that food was
free. At least free for urban born orcs (borrowed from
another freeper), and those with low income.

This is utterly ridiculous. Why do we need free contraception? The Democrats are crazy. If they want to bribe me to vote for them, like they doe everyone else, what have they got to offer?

One “African-American” male who despises conservatives once told me that there is one thing he thought I would agree with him on, “Nancy Pelosi is crazy”. He supported Hillary over Obama so it isn’t a matter of being against women. When a Hillary supporter says Nancy is nuts that is amazing.
