Speaking as someone who uses birth control pills for medical reasons, I will attest that insurance does very little to defray the cost of birth control pills. One insurer we were on made me get notes from the doctor to state that it was for medical reasons every time I went to get a refill, even though the doctor had already okayed the number of refills I could get. I would have gone through Planned Parenthood, but there wasn't one close enough. Making sure a woman has access to a place that provides both family planning, as well as proper medical care, is much needed.
Where there is a will, there is a way. Rooftop solar makes sense because the energy is used where it is produced. When you shift over to these big installations in the desert or elsewhere, problems arise. Keep it small and keep it local.
I'm finding it difficult to reconcile my desire for the entertaining buffoonery a Palin/Barbour/Gingrich/Bachmann primary would bring with the fact that the allowance of such intellectually deficient people to run for our highest office is, to say the least, horrifying.
