The argument is Viagra is covered under Medicare. The public is partly subsidizing erectile dysfunction. The public does not partly subsidize oral contraceptives which is more beneficial to a woman's health. This is an incredibly sexist rant by a very talented performer intended to agitate the misinformed.
Rush Limbaugh Taking on the Sluts Who Want Contraception
Conservative radio host Big Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student, a “slut” and a “prostitute” for publicly advocating that employers cover contraception in their health plans. Republicans are tired of talking about abortion and now seem to be spitting vile about condoms and birth control pills. Seem like they are going out of their way to come off as the bad guys in the movie Red State. Huffpo has the full stupid text but you’ll learn more listening to this song by Monty Python.

You missed it on this one, what people find ridiculous is her advocating for other people to pay for her contraceptives. She said that it would cost her $3,000 for 3 years worth of contraceptives while at Georgetown Law School, or $1,000 per year. Price out a package of condoms and it's probably $1 each if you buy in bulk. This all amounts to spending $3 per day on birth control or buying 3 condoms EACH DAY for 3 years.
Why should anyone other than this woman or the guy(s) who she is banging have to pay for her birth control?
She's a law school student, so she's looking to the government to provide her birth control and that means she's ultimately looking to the taxpayers. And for those who are employed, if you think that adding benefits to your employer-provided health plan is without cost, well, you're just an idiot.
The joke was that this slut has so much sex that she can't afford to pay for the contraception. Since someone else is in a sense paying for her to have sex, she is in turn a prostitute. That's a funny take on it.
His take on it was satirical. He never said he was against contraception, he's against someone else having to pay for the cost of it.
And this is the biggest issue our country faces, How about we help the homeless, the children, the vets, the seniors, ect.......then if we have some $$$ left over we can worry about condoms and other bullshit
This is why liberals don't give a shit about free speech anymore. Too many assholes are back to wanting to control what goes on in your own bedroom.
Fuck all the jocks who lose their JOBS, my house is more important.

See, he's not anti-woman as much as he is pro-porn.
@OllieInChicago I don't think you understand satire.
Wait a minute. You mean someone took a joke, chopped it up to take the humor out of it, then used it as evidence to prove that this person (who they already don't like) is an asshole? Are you sure?
@OllieInChicago Hold on, I think I just misinterpreted your post. I thought you were shitting on Python. I'm dumb.
