You can tell me that we don’t need money in the stimulus package that includes free contraception, but I’ll tell you this much: I am sick of quibbling about 1% of spending in an important piece of legislation. We are distracting ourselves with old social issues from the 1990s instead of focusing on the dramatic loss of jobs in America.
I have a message for members of Congress who want to have a discussion about condoms, Reagan-era values, and business-focused tax cuts: shut up and get out of the way of my economic recovery.
