Heidi Heitkamp Thinks Rick Berg Hates Women

As the national debate over a contraceptive mandate in Obamacare rages, the silence from Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign has been defeaning. Despite being an outspoken proponent of Obamacare in years past, Heitkamp has been unwilling to talk about the healthcare reform law or any of the controversies surrounding it as a candidate for the US Senate.

And yet, while Heitkamp refuses to talk about Obamacare here in North Dakota, she’s staring in campaign commercials with other liberal Democrat women attacking Republicans for a “war on women.”

Remember that while Heitkamp is busy starring in ads like this one, she’s also telling North Dakota voters that she is going to fix “a Congress that is bogged down with partisan fights.”

Because nothing says bipartisan cooperation like accusing your opponent of hating women.

Of course, this is the same nonsense we’ve seen heard from all of our friends on the left about the contraception mandate. They want us to believe that allowing people to have choice when it comes to paying for contraception is the same thing as banning contraception. As though women, or citizens in general for that matter, had a right to have the taxpayers subsidize their sex lives.

This isn’t a good issue for Heitkamp here in North Dakota, which is no doubt why she’s refusing to talk about this issue outside of this ad. Which makes me surprised that she would even want to be in this ad in the first place.
