Is Sandra Fluke a Bald Faced Liar?

Sandra Fluke is the law student selected by Nancy Pelosi to plead the case for why contraception should be “free”.

In her testimony, the hapless Ms. Fluke laughably suggested that:
“Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school”
But, in 2007, The New York Times reported that:
“Wal-Mart… said it would also sell a month’s supply of two popular birth control medications and a fertility drug for $9 each”
This week, The Weekly Standard reported that:
“According to an employee at the pharmacy in Washington, D.C.'s Target store, the pharmacy sells birth control pills--the generic versions of Ortho Tri-Cyclen and Ortho-Cyclen--for $9 per month”
In the United States, law school:
“typically lasts three years”
So, $9 per month x 36 months = $324 -- almost a full order of magnitude less than Ms. Fluke seemingly alleges.

Of course, I suppose a student as erudite as Ms. Fluke might take 30 years, rather than 3 years, to finish law school. In that case, her birth control bill might climb above $3,000. Or, if she sought out the very most expensive options for birth control, maybe she could find somebody eager to charge her 10 times the going rate.

But, no matter what the cost, the assertion that birth control should be provided by health insurance for “free” is absurd on its face. First, pregnancy is not a disease. So, why should health insurance cover it at all? Second, this “free” nonsense is just the latest salvo in the deluge of non-stop entitlements -- entitlements which are already certain to utterly collapse every pillar of Western Civilization.

But, in the “mind” of a Dim, there can never be too many entitlements (or too little Western Civilization).

What’s Next?
Free French Fries?
Nope -- Free Cough Drops!

Andrea Mitchell interviewed her but didn't ask any hard hitting questions. Why would she? Andrea, however, felt compelled to tell everyone three times in three minutes that Ms. Slut...I mean Ms. Fluke...had just gotten off the phone with President Obama and that he gave her (im)moral support.

As you might imagine, Andrea Mitchell is one of my very least favorite so-called "journalists".

So, the Messiah in the White House called poor little Ms. Fluke. But, last I heard, Barack has not called any relatives of any of the victims of Holder's Fast & Furious atrocity.

Typical Dims...

He won't ever call them because he's distancing himself from fast and furious, while creating smoke screens, like this.

Apparently the high-cost of contraception is a big problem. Right. Sure it is.

These turds need to be flushed.

If I owned a firm, I would NEVER hire that Fluke woman after all the trouble she's caused. Someone 5 years older than her classmates perpetuating the myth of the imaginary Republican "war on women." Has a president ever had such a poor track record that it was necessary to create a myth that the opposition party had a problem with half of all humanity? I wonder how much the Democrats paid her ...evidently not enough to cover her birth control.
