Obama: Obamacare Has Given Free Contraception to 100 Million Americans
December 4, 2013 - 4:07 PM

(CNSNews.com) – In a speech at TheArc arts school in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, President Barack Obama touted the free birth control for “100 million Americans” that is already being provided through the Affordable Care Act.

“In the three years since we passed this law, the share of Americans with insurance is up, the growth of health care costs are down to their slowest rate in 50 years,” Obama said at an event hosted by the liberal Center for American Progress.

“More people have insurance, and more have new benefits and protections – 100 million Americans who have gained the right for free preventive care like mammograms and contraception; the more than 7 million Americans who have saved an average of $1,200 on their prescription medicine; every American who won’t go broke when they get sick because their insurance can’t limit their care anymore.”

In the speech, billed as focused on “economic mobility,” Obama spoke about the “dangerous and growing” inequality in the United States.

He also praised government entitlements, such as Medicare, Medicaid and food stamps, and called for universal pre-school and an increase in the minimum wage, saying the latter would be “good for the economy.”

Obama said government “should reflect our deepest values” and that he believes the country’s best days “are still ahead.”

I figure that's about one condom for every American he's screwed.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Well... I hope they were liberals.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
