No-Co-Pay Contraceptive Coverage Fails in Minnesota Because Republicans Find the Issue Too “Embarrassing”


VIDEO: Contraception Coverage Fails In Minnesota Due To “Embarrassed” Republicans

As Republicans shut down the vote on the proposal, Franson explained that she was “embarrassed” that contraception was even being talked about by the House. 

Minnesota Democrats believe there is no reason why insurance coverage for contraception shouldn’t be available without a co-pay in all health plans. Republicans, on the other hand, find the whole subject — well, embarrassing.

So says Republican Representative Mary Franson.  As Republicans shut down the vote on the proposal, Franson explained that she was “embarrassed” that contraception was even being talked about by the House. 

This from a woman who compared food stamp recipients to wild animals in a “don’t feed the animals” video “joke.”
