I am astounded by our president's boldness in dictating new regulations, spending moneys we haven't got, bossing around the churches, insurance companies and banks! All in one week!
He meets with Catholic hierarchy, assures them they won't have to violate their consciences in his healthcare program, turns right around and caters to his ardent left-wing, extremist, feminist base by announcing that religious institutions will have to provide for their employees birth control/abortifacients --not abortion per se --but the chemicals that prevent pregnancy by abortion --and pay huge fines for non-compliance. One commentator noted that it would cost Notre Dame U. 10 million dollars for non-compliance.
There was such an outcry (in conservative media outlets) that he held another press conference and said the insurance companies, nor religious institutions, would have to provide these things --free --to the Catholic institution employee. Again, against the conscience of the employer/the church. As though the insurance company won't raise rates or get it back some way. As though the employee and church employer weren't paying for the insurance. Does he think we're stupid --or is he --that he doesn't know that all his give-away money comes from US and indebts our grandchildren?
Seems he takes on way more authority than he should --even failing to have his justice dep't. defend DOMA, the 1996 federal law in defense of marriage. Since he doesn't agree with the law (he has said both that he does believe marriage is between a man and a woman and that he thinks gays should have "equal rights" --code word for marriage.)
Who is the president to boss around churches and private business? It's all part of his big brother take-over of the health care industry, banking, insurance companies --creating new entitlements and relief programs daily with money we don't have!!!
It's clear he's buying constituents to vote for him with every give-away program, every expansion of entitlements. It's going to take voter fraud, however, and a Democratic turn-out of everyone on the public dole, to get him elected --so irritated are those who know what's going on.
