"Not satisfied with President Obama’s new religious accommodation, Republicans will move forward with legislation by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) that permits any employer to deny birth control coverage in their health insurance plans, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Sunday."

That explains why they were something like +700 in the election won/lost in 2010.

It is a shame that there will be idiots in this country that vote for Obama once again after seeing all his lies. It is also a shame that stealing tax money for their flat screen tv's and pole dancers is not enough, now they want everyone to pay for their birth control.

Will the "takers" in America ever have enough?

This is supposed to be covered because as part of health care reform, preventative medicine is to be covered without co-pays or deductibles.

Why? Obviously, for the benefits of that preventative care to save the covered population from having health problems occur that were preventible, and actually, to SAVE A LOT OF MONEY by lowering the need for far more expensive care down the road.

So the issue really is why should one class of persons, women who are of child-bearing age, be denied this same no co-pay or no deductible access to this area of preventative care?

Under equal protection of the law, it is impermissible to discriminate against this (quite large) class. As a matter of law.

Your issue is with health care reform as passed, not this particular detail, although you apparently don't realize it.

Unless and until that law is repealed, it has to be obeyed, and this benefit package is part of what is mandated.

</div></div>They aren't. If you want this type of service then go pay for coverage that includes it. Forcing all providers to offer this is not constitutional.

</div></div>My issue is that Obama has stepped over the boundary, no make that jumped over the boundary as far as humanly possible. The HC bill was unconstitutional and if we have to fight for ever single instance in which it oversteps the constitution then so be it. Obama has no right to tell insurance providers what they have to offer for free.

Let me ask you this, what would you think if the insurance provider decided to up the cost of insurance for any woman that took advantage of this? That would be fair right, make the ones that are using it pay for it?

Obama is weak and he proved it yet again. I just hope he is gone and this whole thing get repealed before it goes any further.
