What was the breast cancer drug that the Obama administration refused to pay for?
Lost in the media frenzy of who called whom what is the point that "womens health" must be provided for free--without a deductible, or a co-pay.
Not just $9/month birth controls pills--sterilization procedures (surgeon, outpatient surgical center, anesthesiology, etc).
Oddly, however, Kathleen Sibelius has not seen fit to provide breast cancer treatment without a deductible or co-pay. In fact, Kathleen Sibelius saw fit to explicitly prohibit federal funds from being used to pay for a drug that was regarded as effective in treating late-stage breast cancer.
Alas, I can't remember the name of the drug. Anybody know?
Why is the Obama Administration so willing to perform sterilizations--but so unwilling to provide care for breast cancer victims?
