Best Your Mom Joke I've Heard in a Long Time

Dispatches from Health Care Reform Hearing:

Senator Kyl proclaims that since -he- doesn't need maternity care, so why should insurance coverage for maternity cost him more money?

Senator Stabenow answers, "I think your mom probably did."

Thank you, Senator Stabenow, for calling this what it is. Women's health care is not specialty health care. We're >50% of the population. It's incumbent upon insurance companies to cover our health and anatomy just like they do a man's - I don't hear anyone raising a fuss over coverage of Viagra or prostate exams.

Happy Friday, Feminists!
