Skip to comments.Huckabee: if a woman wants to have sex then taxpayers shouldn't foot the bill for her contraceptives

Or foot the bil for men for that matter. That is pretty much what he is saying and has said.
Why should taxpayers foot the bill for women's (or even men's) contaceptives, be they birth-control pills (or other things that women use as contraceptives), and as well --- why should taxpayers pay for contraceptives that men use?
Or are humans wild animals and just have to have contraceptives?
last time I heard, wild animals don’t use contraceptives
(but I agree that taxpayers should NOT pay ...!)
The “Spoiler” speaks!
Why should taxpayers have to subsidize anybody’s recreational sex life?
When did Huck say this? Link?
Well, if he said that, he’s right. It’s an absurdity to think that one person should pay for another’s conscious decision to engage in recreational sex. It’s nonsensical, and if the GOP frames it properly, I don’t see how the libs win. Oh wait, it’s the GOP we’re talking about...
Please... You missed the point.
It isn’t that wild animals uescontraceptives...
But are humans “wild animals” that can’t control themselves, and thus act like animals, and thus need taxpayers to foot the bill for contraceptives?
Please no more unintentional diversions: Stay on topic about how rotten Dems are.
answer to your question: YES, many human beings (especially it seems among your much-loved D’s) ARE “wild animals that can’t control themselves” ....(or at least they choose to behave that way)
It seems they had no parents....
but even so,
the taxpayers have no business being forced to pay for their contraceptives (if they use any to begin with)
I hope he’s including Viagra in that rant. Not to mention penis pumps.
Problem is, they want contraception “after the fact,” i.e. abortion.
I find it hard to gin up any enthusiasm for The Huckster since he endorsed Lindsay Graham for Senate. Hasn’t he always been for amnesty?
Well, Fox News has that one liberal commentator who insists that paying for these contraceptives is only right since the cost of living is so very high - and that sex is used by young folks now as recreation and they cannot afford to buy protection - hence by his logic - we, the taxpayers, should buy their contraceptives for them.
Why not purchase annual movie theatre tickets for them too?
Wild animals don’t tend to have recreational sex. That is purely a human thing.
It’s a quandary. I don’t want to see unwanted kids being born every few minutes. The taxpayer ends up feeding them. So, which is cheaper, a condom or feeding someone for life?
And this is the exact reason liberals are for free birth control and abortion on demand. They know the people will never go for forced population control. So they’ll get as many as they can to volunteer. And they will volunteer as long as it’s paid for.
1.) Can he prove that these teenagers don't spend money on ANYTHING but rent, food, utilities, gas and/or car payments, etc and thus have $0.00 money left over after all of the bills are paid?
If not, then they can pay for their own contraceptives, instead of blowing their leftover money on other things.
2.) He fallaciously broad brush-stroked this by saying “teenagers” are into this as a recreational thing. As if he knows that all teenagers are into this as a recreational thing.
There is a third way: they can get “fixed.”
Sex, with no unwanted kids, no feeding of kids by the taxpayer, and no abortions.
Would people rather pay for a “fix” or condoms and bc pills?A “forced” fix would fall under government forced birth control. Will it happen within the next 10 years or so?
You misunderstood me, I think.
The taxpayers need to tell them that they aren’t going to pay for their unbridled sex, contraceptives, etc, and if they want to have unbridled sex, then they can get “fixed.”
It will be their choice to get fixed, and not forced by the gov’t. I would oppose the gov’t forcing anyone to get “fixed.”
or her abortion or her kid...
She wants to play around, her and her babies daddy can foot the bill.
Huckabee only said this to cover his ass after slamming conservatives for using the word ‘Rino’.
It’s an old trick that Huck is an expert at:
1. Spew liberal crap against conservatives.
2. If conservatives get mad, say something conservative to get them back onto the plantation.
Huckabee is a Rino jerk.
OTOH, why should we have to pay the next 80 years for what popped out from that one night stand? Pocket change today or hundreds of millions later.
I agree totally with you and many others here that Huckabee is a RINO jerk. And I agree with 1 & 2, but I do believe that taxpayer-funded contraceptives, taxapayer-funded!should be done away with, and so I do agree with his stance on this issue.
Guess again. he walked it back after Megan Kelly insisted he do so. She mocked him, “you can’t say libido” and he wimped.
She then had on Bernie Goldberg, who said, yes, yes, no one can say libido
No one can say _____________ who is running for GOP positions.
Just fill in the blank. The conservative pundits on Fox will do it for you.
The logical truth that NO ONE want to face, is that anyone running for GOP political office can not be a wimp. They need to be of sharp and sound mind, able to back up their positions and they need to be very well studied in and aware of the true description of the job. Getting back to basics and the definition of conservatism
they will have the entire tea party, college kids, and young adults waking up to economic reality (Neil Cavuto’s rosy picture notwithstanding) of an extremely low labor force participation, theft level college loan debt set by the lender and tuition rate setter, the department of education, and the 500,000 attendees (average age early twenties) of this week’s non publicized march for life, and the multiples of that who wanted to attend, just to start.
chuck schumer is very anxious about the senate.
Who ever, on the conservative side, who decides to win, and look at these facts, and then transcends the media, by utilizing contemporary technology to communicate to the people will sail through.
As SOON as he walks back a comment, he’ll be a wimp and he’ll be finished.
And it’s just not Chris Christie. He’s a Jersey home boy.
THis guy has to be a complete whiz adherent to the parameters of his job description with a personal history of the same.
