Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight President Obama and -- -- -- That is -- subject of this evening's talking points -- stay with me on this one it's complicated but very import.
Last Friday we invited thirty year old -- -- to appear on the fact.
The Georgetown law student is now become the poster woman in the debate over birth control coverage mandated by the federal government.
Unfortunately -- -- would not appear on the factor instead she has chosen friendly.
Venues where she will not be challenged now.
I did not did not want to talk to send a flock about contraception that's a personal issue.
And as I said on Friday she's free to do whatever she wants to that area it's not -- my business by the way that memo is posted on billoreilly.com.
I did want to ask the young woman about her sense of entitlement.
Why should anyone have to pay increased health insurance premiums so that she and others can get the pill free.
As we all know health insurance companies pass any and all costs onto the consumer.
Since President Obama took office my health insurance premiums have risen about 30%.
And once obamacare kicks in they'll go even higher.
So that's what I want to talk to Sandra -- about just in case she changes her -- Now the big picture.
When the Obama administration decided to order the Catholic Church to cover birth control in the morning after pill they quickly got into trouble.
The president was warned not to do that by Vice President Biden but health secretary.
Kathleen Sebelius won the debate and the president went up against the church.
Soon after he had to retreat because -- government simply cannot order religious organizations to do anything that runs counter to their belief systems.
That's flat out unconstitutional.
So sensing danger the Obama administration quickly pivot it.
And attempted to make the whole situation.
About women's health.
-- central -- they contraception.
The Democrats tried to force a house congressional committee to hear her testimony.
But the committee saying she was not qualified to speak on church state issues.
Which they were talking about.
Turned her down.
That's when his flock went public and into the firestorm.
What was a big loser earned.
President Obama intruding on a Catholic Church became a potential winner.
President Obama protecting the rights of way.
In reality the whole contraception situation is bogus.
Under title ten of the public health service act.
Of all the counties in the USA.
Provide free birth control women want it 75%.
And the rest of the counties are so war are all.
Nobody lives there.
Pres Obama well understands that he needs American women supported next November 2080 -- John McCain 56%.
To 43 among women.
Thus Sandra flock is now a major part.
Of the Obama reelection campaign.
Backs with this is all about.
