Hey, I am backing the moderate. We have to get past the silliness eventually.
Obamacare’s costs: The hits just keep on coming | Kyle Wingfield
"President Obama’s national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law."
Gee, I wonder how much free contraceptives added to that. Well, since we have an idiotic system in place that let's the regulators decide after it's signed into law, this was not hard to predict.....
1. The constitution speaks to preserving individual rights with regards to religion. What you continue to advocate here is the government promotion of religion.
2. Don't look now, but 70% of the population think that the Citizens United ruling sucks. I wouldn't expect it to last too long.
It's not trivial at all. You want organized religion, working in the secular world (in schools and hospitals and elsewhere) to be able to dictate everyone else's standard of conduct, and have the government enforce this conduct on companies and individuals who have little, but passing contact with this religion.Originally Posted by kmiller1610
I agree that government has no compelling reason not to grant the religious organization a waiver - when dealing with it's own organization. The church, however has no compelling reason to force the government to prevent any health insurance hired by the church how they must conduct their business, particularly in the secular businesses like schools and hospitals.Originally Posted by kmiller1610
See, that's not freedom of religious belief at that point. It's religious oppression of everyone else. And the church wants the government to sanction it.
