Rep. Joe Walsh spoke to a crowd in Addison, IL, today and leveled an attack on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who has been an outspoken advocate for no-cost birth control for women. Walsh even said that it's "embarrassing" that women like Fluke feel "entitled" to no-cost birth control.
How about this? This one kills me, then I'll be done with my rant.
So at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night their first primetime speaker was Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is.
Think about this, A 31-32 yr old law student who has been a student for life, who gets up there in front of a national audience and tells the American people, "I want America to pay for my contraceptives." Your kidding me, go get a job. Go get a job Sandra Fluke [clapping]
This is what, I was offended. We've got Americans who are struggling. We've got parents in this country who are struggling to buy sneakers that their kids can wear to school that just started. We've got parents up and down my district who are barely keeping their house. And, and, and, we have to be confronted by a woman, the Democratic Party this is what they stand for. Their going to put a woman in front of us who is complaining that the country -- you, me and you -- won't pay the 9 dollars per month to pay for her contraceptives.
How crazy is this? In a way it's not her fault, because we teach people this stuff. You go back to fairness, we teach young people this. Don't worry government will take care of you. You're having trouble with your student loans? Don't worry government will be there for you.
We are raising the Sandra Flukes of the world. We're raising Americans who don't know how to take care of themselves, who feel entitled. This a woman who feels entitled that we all should pay for her contraceptives. This is what we are teaching Americans? That was embarrassing, that was embarrassing.
