Contraception and Obama

President Obama wasn't quite paying attention the other day when he made a major error in forcing the catholic church to cover contraception in some of its ancillary organizations. Since then, the administration back-pedaled and re-framed the rules to (almost) Church's satisfaction.

While I think that providing free contraception is a wonderful idea to limit population growth, I'm still wondering if it should be free to more affluent folks who can afford the cost. When you think about about it, this is not a health related expense, but put simply a cost of entertainment, like paying for cable TV subscription or a movie ticket. What do you think?
