Why don't Republicans object to Tricare (military health insurance) covering birth control?

Tricare covers contraception. That can only mean one thing. Our nation's military has been infiltrated by sluts and prostitutes who expect Republican people of faith to pay for their recreational sex. It is a good thing that Rush Limbaugh is carried on the armed forces network. That way he can harass these sluts and help to promote a climate of hostility toward them. Then maybe they will go back to their red light districts.

1. Because they get no political mileage for doing so

 

When it looks profitable, they will.

You're not funny enough to be satire - it sounds like a direct unedited quote of right-wing talking points.

2. The memo hasn't gone out yet telling them to be outraged about it.

3. Exactly.

And why haven't right wingers quit their jobs or refused to take jobs where the health insurance covers birth control. Did they check for that before? One would think it might have importance for them. Yet I've never heard one of them say they made sure they weren't going into an insurance pool that provided for something they didn't want themselves or others to have.

4. Because they're hypocrites

 

They'll take care of the people willing to do violence for them around the world, but they don't give a damn about the rest of us.

5. Three possibilities:

1. They are hypocrites who pick their outrages to suit their politics, not their "ethics"
2. They are stupid and don't know the facts
3. They are stupid hypocrites

6. Give them time.

I'm sure at least one of the would-be drivers of the GOP clown car will take a swipe at this.

My bet is on Santorum. He's gone too far down the "sex as fun is evil" road to turn back now.
