This would be more apt if the caption substituted "condoms" for "beer".
Question for the ages: if even Planned Parenthood puts the cost of birth control pills at $150-600 a year and the cost of condoms at $150 a year, how is it fair for ObamaCare to offer free birth control to women, but not men?
Isn't that sex-based discrimination?
When you consider that, unlike the Pill, condoms protect both men and women against STDs or AIDS, the case becomes even more compelling.

Really, I'd rather have my $600 in beer. If you don't want to provide it to me for free, alternatively, you can just not tax me that amount next time around. I'm good either way.

I'll second that emotion!

Cass is right, thought. Naturally, it has to be fair. So what will happen, once someone successfully presses this argument, is that you and I'll get taxed another $600, and then be "given" birth control whether we want it or need it or not.
Which means that not only will we not get a tax break for beer, we'll have $600/yr less to spend on beer.
But it'll be fair!

Well, first it's FREE birth control. Then it's FREE beer. Which will undoubted be restricted to a First Lady approved 2% Light Beer only. Fer yur own good.
Finally some activists/legislative/lobbyists champion(s) of the Passed Over At Last Call demographic are gonna demand FREE Beer Goggles.
Next thang ya know it's a FREE taxi or if the begoggled ain't waitin' to get to the motel, a taxis, otherwise they is lookin for FREE rooms at Motel 6, or a FEMA trailer.
Just don't seem to be no end to it...
I sure don't recognize too many of the yahoos runnin off leash in this danged country no more.
