Obama doubles down on free contraception

Pres. Barack Obama is betting a lot on his policy of guaranteeing free birth control pills for all American girls and women. In the debate, he said:
OBAMA: ... Now, there are some other issues that have a bearing on how women succeed in the workplace. For example, their healthcare. You know a major difference in this campaign is that Governor Romney feels comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the health care choices that women are making.

I think that's a mistake. In my health care bill, I said insurance companies need to provide contraceptive coverage to everybody who is insured. Because this is not just a -- a health issue, it's an economic issue for women. It makes a difference. This is money out of that family's pocket.
No, Obama and the Obamacare Democrats are the politicians in Washington trying to decide that everyone must pay for birth control pill insurance.

Economic issue? Generic birth control pills cost about $10 per month. No free condoms for men yet.
