Sandra Fluke's Bait-And-Switch

Good piece on her latest claims.

The central deceit here -- engaged in not just by Sandra Fluke, but the entire liberal movement -- is to constantly speak of "access."

Access to birth control, access to health care.

"Access" is usually taken to mean you're permitted it. But they are using the word in a novel way -- in order to have "access," they maintain, someone else must be picking up the check for it.

If you're required to pay for a thing out of your own funds, you do not have "access."

They constantly attempt to mislead people with rhetoric designed to imply that the question here is about outlawing contraception.

Of course it's not. You could find only one voter in ten willing to even consider such a proposition.

The question is whether third-parties will be dragooned by yet another government law to cover yet another personal expense.

This is what they call "access" -- their ability to compel you to pay for their wants.

They should be hounded on this deceptive word choice, every time they employ it (which is always). Anytime they're on a talking head Sunday show, the conservative must ask them to define "access," and ask them why they've chosen to use that irregular usage of the term, if not to mislead.
