After Republicans shamelessly took one more vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act on the eve of the contraceptive mandate among other health care coverage for women going into effect, Stephen Colbert had some fun with Mitch McConnell and Rush Limbaugh. Be afraid, there are suddenly going to be sex-crazed women all over America running to Planned Parenthood to get their free government contraceptives, who can't control their "birth control induced sex cravings."

After Republicans shamelessly took one more vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act on the eve of the contraceptive mandate among other health care coverage for women going into effect, Stephen Colbert had some fun with Mitch McConnell and Rush Limbaugh. Be afraid, there are suddenly going to be sex-crazed women all over America running to Planned Parenthood to get their free government contraceptives, who can't control their "birth control induced sex cravings."

Colbert did however, have a solution to help them with that:

COLBERT: Just remember Mitch McConnell and if that doesn't keep you from having sex, I don't know what will.
