Dear Leader shifted his mandate today to the insurance companies. He says they ‘must‘ provide ‘free‘ contraceptive care to all women..blah blah blah. Newsflash to the left, there is nothing free, someone has to pay for this!
Here’s a short and to the point version of what he’s demanding, which is going to cost those of us on an insurance plan dearly…again!
President Obama announced a new plan to require full contraception insurance coverage for female employees at religiously affiliated institutions.
Obama made clear that all religious affiliated institutions will not be forced to offer contraception coverage to employees. Now, insurers will be required to give complete coverage free of charge to all women who work under religious employers.
During his speech, the president urged politicians not to use the complicated matter as a wedge issue.
I don’t know about you all, but this is blatantly unconstitutional too…how can one man have the power to do this through an edit such as this?
I’ve been watching CPAC 2012 on and off since it started yesterday, so thought I’d throw in some fun from a panel yesterday covering this subject as well.
This is from Cal Thomas, hope he still has a job on Fox now and then as a commenter on various segments of their broadcast. You just know the Leftist-Loons have to be screeching about this at the top of their lungs, demanding he be fired…especially at the msDNC Funny Farm!
Here’s a summation of what took place in the video in case you can’t watch this.
During a CPAC panel discussion on the Obama administration’s controversial contraception mandate, The Heritage Foundation’s Genevieve Wood played a clip of Rachel Maddow saying that “the Republican Party was waging war on contraception.”
Turning to columnist Cal Thomas, Wood asked:
“Cal, let’s talk about this religious–this is serious, we laugh about it, but this is serious in terms of, if they get away with this, what would happen in a second term? If that outrage doesn’t turn to action in November, what are we looking at here?”
To which he pointedly responded:
“I’m really glad, Genevieve, that you played the Rachel Maddow clip. I think that she is the best argument in favor of her parent’s using contraception. I would be all for that! And all of the rest of the crowd at MSNBC, too, for that matter.”
Last but not least, Mike Huckabee opened up CPAC this morning…and he summed it up pretty well right off the bat!
Here are the words that had me cheering:
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Huckabee gave “a great big thank you to President Obama.”
“You have done more than any person in the entire GOP field, any candidate has done to bring this party to unity and energize this party as a result of your attack on religious liberty and the attack on the personhood of every human being in America,” the former Arkansas governor declared.
“The fact that Catholic hospitals– and not just Catholic hospitals, but any hospital, any organization — would be required to provide not just contraceptive services, but Plan B abortion pills and other services that are outside the conscience of people of faith is, in fact, a direct violation of the First Amendment.”
You can read the rest here.
I don’t know about you friends…but I have never seen anything like this administration, Ann Coulter spoke today as well at CPAC 2012, she said something that hit the nail on the head as well, I’m paraphrasing here;
“This isn’t about religion, this is about freedom…and what he’s doing now when he puts his mandate on insurance companies is communism!”
So friends…add your sentiments about this matter, how do you see all this through your viewfinder in life?
Also, add any links or thoughts about this matter as well…especially if you’ve been watching CPAC 2012 too, or catch some of the news about this that interests you as well.
