So Obama pulls off some more razzle dazzle. The best part is now contraceptive services prevent various cancers including ovarian cancer so the man says. The quote is in about the first minute of the video below. Tell me how this works.
The Catholic Church somehow is resolved of this issue by the insurance company not the Catholic Church providing this service.
President Obama just announced his plan to “accommodate” religious organizations being forced to provide free contraception. And guess what: he thinks the American people are idiots.
H/T: The Blaze/ Here’s what I mean:
- Obama just said that he won’t force employers with religious reservations to provide free contraception.
- Instead, he said he will now force the insurers to provide such services for free.
- But let’s ask this: who pays for those employees to have those policies? It’s the employers.
- Who do yo think the insurers will pass the cost of such “free” services onto? The employers.
- That means, in the end, employers will be paying for the “free” birth control. That’s basic economics.
For someone from the University of Chicago — home of the great free-market thinker Milton Friedman — President Obama really doesn’t seem to understand some basic economic principles. Or, maybe he does. And then the issue becomes this: he thinks he can fool you, and believes you’re not smart enough to notice.
This isn’t an accommodation or a compromise. It’s a joke. The Blaze/
Under the new policy to be announced today, women will have free preventive care that includes contraceptive services no matter where she works. The policy also ensures that if a woman works for religious employers with objections to providing contraceptive services as part of its health plan, the religious employer will not be required to provide contraception coverage, but her insurance company will be required to offer contraceptive care free of charge.
The new policy ensures women can get contraception without paying a co-pay and addresses important concerns raised by religious groups by ensuring that objecting religious employers will not have to provide contraceptive coverage or refer women to organizations that provide contraception. Background on this policy is included below: White House
