Yesterday during a
pandering campaign event in Colorado geared specifically toward women, President Obama claimed Republican policies deny women the ability to make their own healthcare decisions.
"They want to take us back to the policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century."
According to Barack Obama, demanding free (or taxpayer funded) birth control as a 30-year-old law student like entitled Sandra Fluk counts as women "making their own healthcare decisions." According to Barack Obama, abortion occuring 1.6 million times each year in the United States counts as women "making their own healthcare decisions."
Republicans don't want to take women back to the 1950s, but they do want women to take responsibility for their healthcare decisions without Uncle Sam. Bottom line: If you don't want Uncle Sam in the bedroom, don't make him pay for what happens there.
