World's dumbest argument

I was reading some lefty blogs last weekend when I came across the most idiotic argument supporting the Obamacare contraception coverage mandate: That covering contraceptive services actually saves the insurance company money. Seriously? These are the same insurance companies that always have the adjective "greedy" preceding their name. And if they just started covering contraceptives, they'd be making MORE money. But they haven't been doing it because... Well, they never seem to be able to take their argument to its logical conclusion. Of course, the world's second-dumbest argument is that businesses owned by people of faith and religious institutions aren't being forced to pay for contraceptives and abortifacients because the mandate makes the insurance companies pay for it, not the policyholders. This is brilliant! I bet we can really bring down the cost of health insurance if we mandate that insurance companies pay for ALL health care costs using the magic money bush that grows under artificial light in the basement of company headquarters. I'm just so sick of the stupid.

  1. It is true. Liberals are idiots. However, I cannot figure out the direction of causation. Are dumb people naturally attracted to liberal views or are people who are liberal get stupid over time by virtue of living in the echo chamber of liberalism?

BECERRA: "We're trying to be precise in the language that's used."

SEN. LANKFORD: "Mom is a pretty good word. That's worked for a while."
