Rush Limbaugh, Viagra user and Rx drug abuser, is mad about birth control again

Jul 7, 2014

Today on his little radio program, Rush Limbaugh was all up in arms upon hearing the horrific news that over half of all privately insured women now save a whopping $269 a year by taking advantage of the “free birth control” provided by President Obama’s health care reform law. He’s so upset about it, and convinced that the only reason his fellow men are supporting it is because they want to have sex also. Like some kind of evil slut woman or something.

Via Raw Story:

“Here’s the thing, women have demanded independence and power and feminism and all this, and now demanding everybody pay,” the conservative host opined, adding that he had realized over the weekend that young men also supported contraception coverage.

“Today’s young men are totally supportive of somebody else buying women their birth control pills because make sure the women are — sex is what it’s all about it!” he insisted. “Sex, sex, sex. That’s what it’s all about. Everybody wants it, and whatever it takes to make it safe. And if it takes the taxpayers buying women birth control, the men are for it too.”

“It’s cheap insurance, and if this is what women want before they’ll have sex, fine,” Limbaugh continued. “We were brought up with the idea that sex has consequences, and that it’s somewhat special. And that if you want something, you provide it yourself, you don’t ask somebody else.”

“That’s all out the window now.”

You know who else wants sex? Rush. Fucking. Limbaugh. You know how I know? Because he takes Viagra, as we might recall from that scandal where he was detained for prescription fraud on his way to a stag party in the Dominican Republic. Given the fact that nearly all insurers cover Viagra, it is highly unlikely that he pays for his prescription entirely out of pocket. So, if we go by “Rush Limbaugh Logic”–in which having things covered by insurance that you either pay for yourself or get as part of your compensation from your employer means that you are asking for a handout–that means that he fully supports the idea of all of us paying for his sad old man boners.

I suppose it is entirely possible that Rush Limbaugh wants to use his boners for things other than evil sex-having and such, though I cannot possibly imagine what that could be.

I suppose it is entirely possible that Rush Limbaugh has made it through four marriages, with a Viagra prescription, and managed to have exactly zero children, without any of his wives or ladyfriends ever taking birth control. Because even if those women paid for it all out of pocket, they would still have been evil sluts for trying to avoid the “consequences” of wanton sex-having. After all, he was brought up with the idea that it’s wrong for anyone to try to escape those “consequences.” It makes it less special if a woman doesn’t end up with an unwanted child, amirite?

The gall of these women. These awful sluts. Not paying out of pocket for their birth control. Greedily saving themselves $269 a year, without a thought of how that might affect Rush Limbaugh, who most certainly does not want to pay for all these sluts to slut around with men other than him.

But you know what costs us more?

People who abuse prescription drugs. People like Rush Limbaugh, who was arrested in 2006 on charges of doctor shopping and prescription drug fraud, after receiving 2,000 painkillers, prescribed by four doctors, over a period of six months. They cost us a hell of a lot more.

In fact, people like Rush Limbaugh cost insurers, on average, $10,000-$15,000 a year, which–I could be wrong–I think is more than $269! In fact, people like Rush Limbaugh raise insurance premiums across the board, for all of us, whereas providing women with insurance that covers birth control ends up costing us all a lot less in the long run.

You know what else costs money? The treatment program Limbaugh had to enter in order to get off the Oxycontin and other painkillers he was addicted to. That was very likely covered by insurance as well.

So, Rush Limbaugh–by his own logic and fairly twisted ideas about how insurance works–believes that we, the people, should finance his boners, his painkiller addiction, and the treatment of said painkiller addiction–but absolutely not cover women’s birth control. Just let that roll around in your head for a minute.

Now, I may not be a big city lawyer, but I am pretty sure that someone who abuses the insurance system deserves a lot more contempt than women who just want their regular prescriptions covered by the insurance that they pay for. Given that health insurance often costs around $269 a month to begin with, and birth control is often the only prescription a lot of women are even on, I think it’s far less of a big deal to have that covered than to have the prescriptions of drug addicts like Rush Limbaugh covered.

Then again, I’m an evil, consequence-avoiding slut, so what do I know?
