Fox Panelist: Single Women Depend On Gov’t Because They Don’t Have Husbands (VIDEO)

Single women are “Beyonce voters” who depend on the government in lieu of husbands to provide their birth control, according to one Fox News panelist.

Jesse Watters made the comment Tuesday on “Outnumbered” during a discussion of the Supreme Court’s ruling against the Obamacare contraception mandate. After a clip played of Hillary Clinton calling the Supreme Court’s decision “deeply disturbing,” Watters suggested that Clinton would treat access to contraception as a constitutional right in order to curry favor ahead of a potential 2016 bid.

“She needs the single ladies vote,” he observed. “I call them the ‘Beyonce voters,’ the single ladies. Obama won single ladies by 76 percent last time and they made up about a quarter of the electorate.”

“They depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands,” he added. “They need things like contraception, health care and they love to talk about equal pay.”

None of the program’s four female co-hosts challenged Watters’ assessment.
