Hosted by Abe Proctor. Joe Uris is on Summer Vacation.
Even in these days of shadow, we manage somehow to lurch toward enlightenment. Amid the unfolding debt debacle -- and the first-ever downgrade of U.S. credit -- the Dept. of Health and Human Services announced that all health plans must cover contraception, with no copay. It's a tremendous victory for everyone who likes to have sex.
Predictably, the usual hysteria ensued. With Joe on summer hiatus, Abe looks at the fallout from the debt "deal" and the surprise decision in favor of good sense.
