Awwwkward: McCain Can't Answer Question About The Pill(s)

Awwwkward: McCain Can't Answer Question About The Pill(s)

Ever wonder why many insurance companies cover Viagra but not birth control? That can put a woman in a tough spot! John McCain hasn't been too worried about it, since he voted against a bill that would require insurance companies to match Viagra coverage with birth control coverage.

One reporter tried to find out if McCain changed his mind, but the candidate became extremely uncomfortable (trying to hide behind his hand) and refused to answer the question. Now Planned Parenthood is running the video in a cable TV ad playing in key swing states. Do you think it will be effective? Does this impact your opinion of McCain?

McCains fantastic experience with foreign affairs? Is that the substance that you want to hear? While I support the unexperienced rookie Barack Obama's plan to increase the salaries of teachers (like Miss Hunterme) to help further the educational system for minorities. Who is overseas right now whoing the foriegners and our troops with political excitement. The first African American to ever take an campaign this far.... in the finals of an All-Star election. On point with the Iraqi's as far as a timetable is concerned ..and at the same time able to sync a 3 pointer from the perimeter! And as the crowd roars..gaining insurance from the Afghans...pressuring the Pakistans...and touching base with the general Patreas. Meanwhile...his opponent McCocain has to be asked to campaign with dignity..for tasteless jokes about himself, who also cant come up with an answer to insure birth control pills? Is this For Real? Or Fo Show?

Hey UnDave...... are you For Sure?

Lilkim - I hope you aren't waiting for a coherent response from fo show. The avatar fits, in that Fo show's comments are only that, for show. There is no substance to the argument, and if you look to far beneath the surface, it falls apart...

You guys must have finally looked in the mirror.. :-O
Fo-show317771 Fo-show317771 8 years
Thats a flip- Remember the argument about the community, and the wonderful visions he has for the educational system!

Actually, I'm not flip-flopping. I said you never gave specfics as to which parts of his plan you stand by. And I'm still waiting...
Fo-show317771 Fo-show317771 8 years
I take that back- Maybe you guys shouldnt run for President!

Ladies take it eeeeasy! I know I'm a lady magnet and all..but 10 women asking 20 different question's is a bit much, dont you think? Lilkimbo- your flip flopping! If I never told you, then why would you repeat what I said about recycling Bush policies in #110 Miss Hunterme- how can I worry little Benjamin Franklin when I already told you that I was Big Ben! Now your losing memory..should I bring up the Alziemers issue again? Nature of the Beast-that was my topic in another post-thats my nature. Lying? And solid facts! These are totally my solid opinions! McCain is prooving them for me!

This seems so weird. I have a good plan through my employer, and I still have o pay $25 per month for birth control. I wish I could back on my student health plan. $4 for three months! It was glorious.

I have to pay out of pocket for all of my prescriptions as well as my doctors visits (specialist and primary care) except for well visits. I have a high dedcutible insurance plan that has a high monthly premium as well. It sucks. My bc pills cost me about $34 per month.

To answer the question "Does this impact your opinion of McCain?" No, my opinion of him is already as low as it can go.

"Since you guys have broader answers than me and McCain...why not run for president?" Actually, there was a lot of talk here some time back about some of us running ;)

Good morning ladies. :wave: I misse dyou all yesterday, especially during the 8 hour meeting (with only 2 breaks). To the topic at hand. I am wondering what insurance companies don't cover birth control. I noticed they say many, but it isn't all. Does that mean that it's the cut-rate companies that don't. I know my wife's insurance covers BC pills.

Miss Hunterme do your research..I clarified every statement-in every post- its not an logical answer to you? Thanks again for trying to say something that isn't true, but you haven't. I am not worried about it because I have noticed that lying is in your nature along with no research. Don't you worry your little Benjamin Franklin, I get every post in an e-mail and I have read them out loud for the enjoyment of many. Your irrational thoughts only make sense to yourself I have noticed and even then, you contradict yourself 8-10 posts later.

Thanks, ladies :) Fo show, repeating broad generalizations and changing the subject to "who you are" isn't the same as clarifying your statements with solid facts or information.

And that is the perfect avatar, Jude!

Actually, fo show, you still haven't told me what specifically you don't like about McCain's plan. And I didn't change the subject, you said his plan was based on recycled ideas! My question was based off your assertion! I'm still waiting for what you don't like. Thanks for defending me, guys. :hug:

wow. what a double standard. this certainly impacts the way i view mccain (i didn't really like him much to begin with, though).
Fo-show317771 Fo-show317771 8 years
Ha ha ha! I love you guys! Miss Hunterme do your research..I clarified every statement-in every post- its not an logical answer to you? Its not what you want to hear..Get one from McCain..he is who you want for president....he has a tough time answering simple questions! Since you guys have broader answers than me and McCain...why not run for president? Im not a teacher..or politician. Im an artist...with my own thoughts and opinions. If I dont give you guys what YOU want to hear....so be it! I'm not going to stop voicing my opinion!

Jude, I just re-read your post and I love how it just goes so perfectly with your picture! It's just like the words are floating out of her :)
