Now it's time for congress to address other important topics, like unemployment, Afghanistan and ... breast feeding?
Oh, yeah! That's one point Rep. Steve King uses in his argument against recent actions of the Dept. of Health and Human Services (with FAUX News batting clean-up).
Beginning next year, medical services such as prescription birth control, breast-feeding aids, gestational diabetes and domestic violence screenings are to be fully covered by insurance companies with no deductible. The goal, says HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, is to "ensure women get...preventive health benefits(.)" The program can reduce long-term costs of both women's and children's healthcare, analysts say.
But it'll do much more harm than good, King says. According to the Iowa Republican, if we apply preventive medicine, "what you end up with is, you prevented a generation."
And Stephen Colbert was completely supportive of King's premises, too, as well as FOX's arguments against this women's health benefit. In recent edition of his Colbert Report, he offered "a woman's health decisions are private matter between her priest and her husband!"
Add the dinosaur extinction to your argument, and you've got it down pat.
