With the deficit crisis over and Congress in recess, Stephen Colbert returned to an old stand-by — health care. The Department of Health and Human Services has stated that health insurance must cover breast feeding, HIV screenings, abuse counseling and other costs of that nature.
Like Congressman Steve King (Repub., Iowa), Colbert is outraged, especially because breast pumps and abuse counseling are "frivolous impulse buys" comparably to pedicures and manicures.
"You know the ladies," he quipped. "They are always pumping out breast milk, getting a mani-pedi, having a [cosmopolitan] with their abuse conselor and then picking up some spermicidal [frozen yogurt]."
Worse is the proliferation of birth control. On the one hand, Colbert reiterated King's fears that it will prevent an entire generation of Americans from being born and on the other it will turn our daughters "into wanton harlots with an instaiable sexual appetite."
