Nobody needs to go into the horrendous mandate handed down by the Obama administrations Department Of Health and Human Services (HHS). By now everyone has heard about it, and the outcry by the Catholic bishops has been well documented by all the media although they don’t tell the whole story. They refer to it as regulations regarding birth control when actually it also includes abortion, and surgical sterilization.
Now the media is reporting that the administration is pulling back on the mandate by instead of forcing religious institutions to buy these services he will require the insurance companies to provide them for free. Imagine that. Insurance companies giving free services out of the goodness of their hearts.
It seems Mr. Obama has spent way too much time involved in the business of the automotive industry. He now fancies himself a car dealer. “I know you didn’t want the optional tinted windows but I’m going to throw them in for free.” How stupid does he think we are? Does he realize that the greater number of citizens have dealt with car salesmen before? No matter what the invoice says you paid for the tinted windows. I find this demeaning posture an insult to any thinking person no matter how you feel on the issue.
What is also being missed in this is that it isn’t just the Catholic Church that will be offended by this. As Obamacare becomes fully implemented tax dollars will be spent to supplement the insurance premiums of lower income citizens. Therefore if these mandates are in place, tax dollars will be spent providing these services which is against Obama’s promise, law and the ideology of many more than just Catholics.
This whole theater is only one small incident that illustrates why Obamacare can’t stand. This isn’t just a fight for the Catholic churches rights. It’s a stand that has to be taken by all to end this government over reach as well as many more to come.
Mr. Obama. The citizens of this country aren’t as stupid as those you surround yourself with. We know who pays for what.
