Kyl Must've Been Delivered by Stork

The general rule is that if Senator Kyl is speaking, Arizona is being embarrassed. Even by those standards, though, this is nuts:

"I don't need maternity care," Kyl said. "So requiring that on my insurance policy is something that I don't need and will make the policy more expensive."

Stabenow interrupted: "I think your mom probably did."

It's bad enough that the Senate doesn't reflect gender or ethnic parity found throughout the country, even worse that it retains a neanderthal like Kyl who is so devoid of empathy that the question must be asked if he was delivered by stork.

Maternity care is the last thing that should be used as an excuse to water down the current health care reform proposals moving through Washington. You'd think that was a no-brainer but we're dealing with Senators with no brain nor heart.
