Obama Campaign: Birth Control Costs $18,000
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 09/29/2012 8:51:52 PM PDT by chessplayer

If anything as embarrassing as what follows occurred at a Republican presidential contender's website, including the follow-up ridicule by the opposition, the press would never be able to resist covering it.

A mythical (I hope) ecard created at the Obama-Biden campaign site call purports to be from a daughter to her mother, and asks about the most ridiculous question you can imagine.

I have no idea how the Obama campaign came up with $18,000.

As I noted over six months ago in March, $9, 28-day supplies of birth control pills can be had at Target (which now appears to be down to $4), Walmart, and in the Midwest, Kroger (Kroger link no longer works).

Howard Portnoy at Hot Air's Green Room notes that it would take 166 years to burn through that $$18,000 at $9 a month -- so I'll quibble and note that there are 13 four-week periods in a year, and that it would take 154 years to burn through that 18 grand at $117 per year.

Mayhap the government paid cost of an abortion?

The cost of $18,000 per year means that they’d have to be having sex at least 5 or 6 times a day, right?

That 18k came from somewhere in Obamacare. I would imagine that's what it would cost
if the Gov provided it. So much for the cost savings that was touted by the Rats.

Joe Biden on C-SPAN. They’ve actually handed out signs that say “Republicans for Obama!”

hahaha. If the Dems cannot find a desired minority, they’ll just make one up.

Because under Obamanomics, a Happy Meal will cost $1800 and a gallon of gasoline will cost $400 before he's finished destroying the US!

Nah, the Louis Vuitton condom is $68.00 each. (I kid you not.) So, for 18K you could get 264 condoms which means you could only have sex every 1.4 days. (About 5 times a week.) I know, sex-starved, right?

Yes, and I’m sure that gun owners, Evangelicals and Belgians are also voting for Obama. He might just get 100% of the vote!

Birth Control Costs $18,000

For half that amount, these people who insist on a thrill between their legs every single day could all be given a nice motorcycle.

Haha. You should see some of these turds on C-SPAN. Half of them look suicidal. One just checked her watch, probably thinking “When is Biden going to shut up? I wanted to see the Dear Reader!”

Actually, the $18,000 per year figure is accurate.

Consider $10 per month for the Rx, and a mere $1,490.00 per month pharmaceutical tax (there is nothing else it could be.)

So, birth control is more expensive than having children.

Why is the government (us taxpayers) giving someone $18,000 a year to have sex? Boy, is this country screwed up.

Generic birth control costs $10 per month at Walmart.

If a woman takes this from birth, she will be 150 years old when the $18,000 runs out.

I wonder how much action those 150-year olds are getting?

Look at the average Democrat— they’d have to pay someone at least $18,000 a year for sex!

I still find it a lot more then coincidence that they asked Romney in a Primary debate a birth control question when it hadn't even become a campaign or church rights issue yet. Romney laughed and said something like “birth controls working fine”. Seemed like a set-up question to me in light of later events. That the moderator would know what Obama was going to make into a “war on women” so early on and try to catch Romney saying something they could label “sexist” or “against women's health” just smells of msm/Obama collusion.

Maybe the birth control pills are bought on Rodeo Drive and come packaged in a gold (not plastic) case.

Well if it is like reports coming out of Toronto Public Schools, they need some extra protection to keep girls from getting pregnant on the cucumber seeds they are being encouraged to have sex with.
