PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Palm Beach resident Rush Limbaugh ruffled feathers Thursday when he allegedly said women who want the government to pay for their contraceptives should have to post an online video of their sex act.

According to MSNBC, the comment was in regards to a Georgetown law student who testified in support of contraceptive coverage by insurance companies.

"What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?" Limbaugh asked his listeners.

"It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute," Limbaugh continued. "She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex."

In a close vote Thursday, Senate republicans failed to block President Obama's new birth control rule.

It requires most employees to offer free contraceptive even if the employer objects on religious grounds.
