Hussein is a socialist, anti-capitalist clown. I am not surprised the punk came out with this today though. His petulant, anti-Constitutional edicts often seem to be done right after his ass has been kicked.

He does this to not only throw red meat to his moronic cult, but also to put something else in the news cycle.

I hope the insurers fight this in court. Hussein has no clue how to run a lemonade stand, let alone the insurance industry.

As long as it’s provided to the non-taxpaying voters free of charge, I won’t argue with it.

So what all does this cover? Am I now paying for the pill, IUDs, condoms, norplant, everything without a co-pay? Dam. that will add up to one big bill at the end of the year...

Good, that means it's free then.

Perfect way to take care of our budget issues, make everything free so it doesn't cost anything.

goes in effect after the 2012 elections. I hope insurers send out letters on rate increases before the elections.

I have not checked, but these are the people who think abortion is birth control. Is it included?

Birth control pills increase breast cancer risk.

Obama provides toxic treatment free of charge.

That’s a good question actually.

Any pregnant woman who shows up at Planned Parenthood has to pay for an abortion currently? Seems to me they are free already?

Does anyone know the answer to this?

They might try and convince people it is, but that will be what will kill it by the house if it does.

They won’t use it as long as the monthly amount they collect from taxpayers is directly linked to the success of their breeding efforts.

Mandated cross subsidies for favored groups are a big part of why the left wants collectivized health insurance. Nothing against birth control, mind you, but as a 59 year old male, it’s probably not something I would choose to pay for. So ... captain zero is building a hidden tax into the premium structure to fleece me on behalf of a constituency to which he wants to pander. And in the long run, the benefit/premium package will be heavily skewed to reflect the clout of assorted political pressure groups. This is not a way to bend the cost curve down. Or to promote innovation. Or to encourage responsible lifestyle choices and self-responsibility.

It will be, no doubt.

One of the huge undercurrents in the abortion ideology is that everyone has to be made complicit. There is a clause in 0bamacare that says that at least $1 of every premium payment must go to pay for abortions. Why? The only reason for this is to make sure that everyone is forced to participate in abortions.

Free $30 packs of birth control isn’t insurance, it is a handout. Insurance is suppose to protect you from bankruptcy in event of a catastrophy. If it did just that, it would be much cheaper. Why is this so difficult to figure out?

Panel chairwoman Linda Rosenstock, dean of public health at the University of California, Los Angeles, said that prevention of unintended pregnancies is essential for the psychological, emotional and physical health of women elimination of the mentally ill, homosexuals and the inferior races and the creation of the new Man through the policy of selective breeding of humans.

Fixed it.

The Nazis have never gone away fully since their basic philosophy predates Hitler and was called eugenics but is now referred to as family planning.

Another way to bankrupt health care insurance companies and leave socialist OmamaCare as the only way to deliver health care. No co pays sounds great to those 50% of those who live in America and essentially pay no taxes. I say “those” as many are non-citizens. Free, means we who still pay some taxes will be paying for others who are free loaders.

Once no copay is the norm, OmamaCare will run up government spending even more than Obama’s present spending and borrowing binge. We are the next Greece.

I agree, Birth Control is NOT prohibitively expensive. This is a LIFESTYLE choice, not something that is required for life. If the President can mandate that Birth Control is free; what about donuts? How about alcohol?

Or, from the Catholic side of the fence (and I am NOT a catholic) - here is a group of hard-working taxpayers; who are now coerced by threat of imprisonment forced to buy, and provide a product that is expressly forbidden to them, and is an affront to their system of morals.

This seems unsupportable by any legal means.

Following the price history of Medicare, since it’s now “free” those $30 BC pill packs should cost $1500 beginning in 2013.

No, no, no, you don’t understand.
The birthcontrol doesn’t retroactively get rid of the existing non-taxpaying voters - just their next generation.

No, the woman has to pay, usually about $400. However, there are indications that, at least in some cases, the charges may be shoved on taxpayers by claiming an abortion is something else-like a D&C for example.

Correct. Look for the pro-gay, anti-DOMA rhetoric to be ramped up in the coming week.

The WH is being scoured for all red meat possible to bring back fast-deserting leftist moonbats.

The IQ of those non-taxpayers is way too low for them to even consider a reliable birth control method, only infertility do to age stops them.

From forced funding for birth control to Plan B to abortion... only takes two steps to justify what is ultimately their agenda.

Walmart already offers birth control pills for $9 a month.
The free market has already made a way for people to afford birth control if they want it.

Don't forget the mandatory use of this "preventive care". That's coming down the pike, too. Have to keep the undesirables (that's you and me, folks) from breeding too much.

And doctors, including Catholic ones, will be forced to provide this "preventive care," as well.

If BCP's are "preventive care," what disease do they prevent?

Exactly. Whenever the government steps in to make something "free", the real price of that thing skyrockets. Or -- like food on the shelves of the old Soviet Union -- that thing gets extremely scarce.

Our economy is in the hands of mentally challenged 11 year olds.

Gee, will Obama take away the $27 copay I have to pay with Blue Cross, each time I go to the doctor to get my blood pressure checked? That's preventive maintenance.

If that's the case, then he can order Walmart to give away free ponies.

Get your blood pressure checked at a drug store or Walmart free or almost nothing or buy a home blood pressure checker for like $25 if the co pay bothers you.
