Obamathematics: 12 X 9 = 18,000
Barack Obama claims that birth control pills cost $18,000/year. Target and WalMart charge $9/month. Twelve months in a year. That comes out to $108 by the math I learned. But then, I'm not a liberal Democrat.
If anything as embarrassing as what follows occurred at a Republican presidential contender's website, including the follow-up ridicule by the opposition, the press would never be able to resist covering it.
A mythical (I hope) ecard created at the Obama-Biden campaign site call purports to be from a daughter to her mother, and asks about the most ridiculous question you can imagine.
Here it is:
I have no idea how the Obama campaign came up with $18,000.
As I noted over six months ago in March, $9, 28-day supplies of birth control pills can be had at Target (which now appears to be down to $4), Walmart, and in the Midwest, Kroger (Kroger link no longer works).
