Maybe Billy Long should have fact checked.....

Remember lat week, on August 1, how Billy Long and a whole bunch of Republicans were OUTRAGED because Obamacare mandated coverage of prescription birth control to take effect on August 1, 2012--

Here's what Billy said:

You don't have to worry about the brave. We're still home of the brave, but we're not the land of the free anymore. And we need to get that straight.
When you're not free to practice religious freedom in this country, what in the world have we come to? Seriously, goodness gracious. The land of the free, the home of the brave. We're no longer free in this country.


"We're no longer free in this country" --

Actually Billy Long, according to the prestigious Guttmacher Institute, Missouri and 26 other states already required insurers that covered prescription drugs to provide coverage of FDA approved contraceptive drugs and devices.



Where's your outrage now. Or is this just more of your auctioneer schtick?

Let's not forget oh Billy was quick to endorse Mitt Romney. Romney of course launched Romneycare which also had contraceptive provisions similar to Obamacare. http://bungalowbillscw.blogspot.com/2012/08/billy-longs-contraception-freedom.html

Like I have said before, everyone dislikes and makes jokes about Belly Long.....except the voters.

When they get in the voting booth and pull that curtain, their love for Belly seems to rekindle in their hearts.

Its hard to figure out the people of SW Missouri It is really getting to be a good place to be from.
