    Heres what happend: McCain is doing one of his ussual press conferences where reporters get to ask him questions. A reporter asked him why he voted against insurance companies covering birth control but they cover Viagra. He doesn't know what to say. I swear both of these canidates are loosers. Makes we wanna vote independent even more. Besides, what kind of logic would an insurance company have to cover viagra before birth control? A guy getting an errection shouldn't be more important than a woman getting pregnant. Pregnancy is serious and it would be in the best interest to cover birth control being that if a woman gets pregnant that same insurance company will have to pay for pre-natal care and once the baby is born it will also be insured under the same policy. I always looked at birth control as an investment:rolleyes:. Most insurance companies do cover birth control voluntarily but it isn't mandatory.


    Here you go! RedLasso - John McCain asked about Viagra (he gets flustered)

    Isn't surprising, another example of America's fucked up priorities.

    Ha ha! That's rich. There was no covering-up that discomfort.

    I recommend looking at this related clip:
    RedLasso - John McCain asked about Viagra (he gets flustered)

    It's the uhhhh-ummmm-pshhhhh-whew [0:35] plus a surrogate's support points.

    "Well, I don't have a monitor... and I could not hear..." [1:09].

    I thought it was hilarious that this same question was brought up by his own economic advisor [1:25], and yet McCain claims that he doesn't have enough information to make a response. You'd think he and Fiorina would swap notes.

    First, whether an individual "owns" his or her own health coverage doesn't mandate that said health insurance provider will cover birth control or not [1:58]. If anything, maybe a bureaucrat can kick back some sort of support tax break or levy a cost if an insurance provider offers something that another one does not. Even the surrogate admitted that Congress has the power to push for certain procedures to get covered via committee establishments [1:45]. Individuals just don't have that power; or, rather, they don't have enough force behind them to compel an insurance company to change its policy of coverage.

    Anything other than flat out abstinence merits a cost, and appropriate medications, vaccinations, and procedures deemed useful to promote women's health still incur a cost, whether we're talking prophylatics, routine screening and testing, vaccinations, and so on. I'm a smart guy, and I can tell you that it's pretty hellish to open up even a summary of benefits provided by insurance to determine just how much you'll pay it. It's all very confounding, and I can't imagine that the premiums somehow pass on that much of a credit -- it's just an ease of payment burden -- to the individual. In any case, unless you're prepared to do some manhunting, the McCain position doesn't leave you with much power to effect policy selections that fit your needs.

    At my most cynical, I would say that all insurance companies have to do under a McCain administration is simply narrowband their products. If they all implicit to argue nickel and dime over a very finite range of products and services, no one will find what they need. They're just pulling the supply plug.

    Bad, bad segue into economic issues [3:10]. Don't get me wrong. Retirement is good to discuss, but it just seemed thrown in there.

    Could've spared three and a half minutes to admit that, no, this is something the McCain camp needs to think about. A half-assed distraction argument doesn't cut it.

    In their defense, ask anyone for that matter what measures or people they voted for after walking out of the election polling booth. Then ask them to indicate why they voted that way and what the legislation or candidate was about ? Would the response be any different ? And since bashing Americans was another thread, I doubt you can go anywhere else on the planet and find much different ? So it's not just "dumb" Americans.

    John McCain is lost without a script or a thorough briefing. I have observed that very time he has to speak off the cuff (think on his feet), he stumbles and fumbles around. He seems very indecisive.

    It will be interesting to watch the debates. I bet that the Republicans are going to insist on a very tightly controlled, scripted format.

    Um.... getting pregnant is not a DISEASE... electing to avoid it is not a disease.


    Erectile dysfunction qualifies as a disease because its something that ought to work, that doesn't.
    Insurance companies did not CHOOSE to cover viagra and not the pill... they simply had no choice in the matter because they had no valid argument that ED was not a disease, nor that viagra was not efficacious....

    One guy needs to have more information, the other shoots from the hip with hype and bullsh*t ? I guess the results are about the same ?

    There are plenty of things that aren't diseases that aren't covered. Some insurances cover cosmetic laser eye surgery. That isn't medically neccessary. It is if there is an eye condition. Until I got my new insurance company prescription GLASSES or eye exams weren't covered unless you have diabetes. What the hell was I supposed to do? Go Blind while an insurance company pays for some guy to get a hard on?

    Some insurances cover fillers such as botox and though excema is a non deadly disease (i have that too) not all medication for it is covered. I've had these same bumps on my nose since I was like 13. I didn't even know bumps could live that long but I once got a prescription that really was working. I went to get a refill and they denied it and said the insurance company must have overlooked it the first time. I still have these bumps. They're barely noticable because they fall right where my glasses are so they're hidden. Herpes Simplex Virus 1 is something that me and most of the country have. Now What you're saying is true but what about insurance companies who don't cover infertility treatments?


    oh, meant to say that though electing to not get pregnant is not a disease so are many vaccinations. Vaccinations prevent things but can't preventing pregnancy stop some people from getting gestational diabetes and other illnesses?

    Imho , neither should be covered. If you want to keep fucking past 60 you should prepare for it now by cardio excercises and taking measures to prevent your prostate from becoming teh size of Texas. And if you don't want to get pregnant, use a rubber, pull out, don't fuck.....etc..etc. With all the side effects of the pill, I'm suprised people still take it or suggest that it be taken. But that's just me.

    Besides , everybody knows that you get a hard on from eating watermelon and you won't get pregnant if you do jumping jax after sex. Duh...

    Well, alot of people are on the pill but not neccessarily for birth control. Some are on it to regulate their period. I've been on the ring for just over two weeks. Using a condom is effective but I was scared as fuck one day when he pulled out and the condom was stuck up in me. I use it as a back up method and I did the same when I was on depo (the shot). Now, i'm really considering the arm implant....lasts a few years so thats good. Pulling out isn't very effective. Should I tell you how many dumb ass chicks in Baltimore have babies because they thought they couldn't get pregnant if he pulled out or if she douched afterward? These myths are very unrealiable. The patch is just about impossible to get now and even if I wanted to it would be hard to find a doctor willing to prescribe it to me. Telling people not to fuck is something I would consider as being unrealistic. In school we were told more often to practice safe sex than we were told not to have sex at all. Why? Because they know we'll do what the hell we wanna do. In certain states a judge can include in a plea bargain birth control. In cases where a woman has charges of child abuse or a baby is born addicted to a drug (such as a crackbaby) and charges are brought against the mother a judge can lighten a sentence if the mother agrees to getting the arm implants. Some think its wrong but its in the best interest. Oh, i'm about to start a new thread. It may give some guys a hint!

    Ohhh trust me. I know the thought of not fucking is unrealistic. I'm an old school horn dog. Like the old school cartoons where the dog sees a pin up girl and he starts banging his foot on teh floor and his eyes and tounge pop out of his head a la Bart Simpson. They modeled that after me.

    However , some people somehow practice abstinance.

    Supposedly the best chance of a female getting pregnant is in the 7-10 day period after her period.
