Obama Announces Pseudo Birth Control Waiver On Top Of 1200 OTHER ObamaCare Waivers

One paragraph tells you how crazy this “accomodation” by Obama in forcing religious organizations to provide contraceptive and abortion-producing services even if their religious beliefs forbid such services:

The change would allow religious organizations to refuse to cover contraceptive care. It would also require insurers to offer a plan that does not include contraceptive care in their contracts with nonprofit religious groups. But the insurers would be required to make contraception available free of charge to women anyway.

So if you move the burden back one organizational level everything is okay?

Imagine if you are a manager at an organization such as the Catholic League.  According to Obama’s “accomodation” you are exempted – at least until after Obama gets re-elected when he’ll come after you with a vengeance for making him look bad.  But even though your health insurance provider is an organization that was created by the Catholic Church, it will NOT be exempted, so all of the Catholic employees at that insurer will still be required to violate their consciences or lose their jobs.  But meanwhile you over at the ostensibly exempted Catholic League will be required to tell all employees that they can get birth control and abortion-inducing services because they work for you.

Here’s another example: Holy Cross Hospital would still be required under ObamaCare to provide free access to birth control, abortion and sterilization which it believes is all morally evil.  They don’t have to do it “directly” by Obama’s “accomodation”; rather, they have to pay an insurance company to do provide those “mortal sins” for them.  Now, on Obama’s magical thinking, the insurance company is providing birth control, abortion and sterilazation for “free.”  But that is quite literally insane; of COURSE it won’t be for free.  The insurance company is going to increase Holy Cross’ premiums.  Which is to say that Holy Cross is still going to be forced to pay to provide “services” that they view as genuinely evil.

Here’s a description of the continuing moral dilemma that is the Obama presidency:

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a non-profit law firm that recently filed three lawsuits on behalf of Catholic institutions against the new contraception rules, has come out against the the administration’s compromise.

This is a false ‘compromise’ designed to protect the Presiden’s re-election chances, not to protect the right of conscience,” Hannah Smith, an attorney for the group, said in a statement. “Hundreds, if not thousands, of religious institutions are still left out in the cold and will be forced to violate their religious convictions.”

The statement continued: “According to a White House statement, some religious employers will no longer be required to provide insurance coverage for contraception … However, at least three problems remain. First, hundreds if not thousands of religious organizations self insure, meaning that they will still be forced to pay for these services in violation of their religious beliefs. Second, it is unclear which religious organizations are permitted to claim the new exemption, and whether it will extend to for-profit organizations, individuals, or non-denominational organizations. Third, money is fungible, and many religious organizations may still object to being forced to pay money to an insurance company which will turn around and provide contraception to its employees for free.”

Obama, ever the perennial political weasel, said this:

I understand some folks in Washington want to treat this as another political wedge issue. But it shouldn’t be. I certainly never saw it that way,” Obama said. “This is an issue where people of good will on both sides of the debate have been sorting through some very complicated questions.”

See?  Obama is giving his far-left base exactly what they want while he further divides the country with still another wedge issue.  But there’s absolutely nothing political about that.

This facade is an outgrowth of what überliberal Newsweek editor Evan Thomas said about Obama’s style of governance:

“I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

And of course is God really political partisan???  Of course not.  Your god Obama would never do anything that might even hint at merely mortal politics.

The New York Times expressed this facade thus:

WASHINGTON — At the core of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is a promise that he can transcend the starkly red-and-blue politics of the last 15 years, end the partisan and ideological wars and build a new governing majority.

To achieve the change the country wants, he says, “we need a leader who can finally move beyond the divisive politics of Washington and bring Democrats, independents and Republicans together to get things done.”

The bare-naked truth is that Obama has been cynically running for re-election since the day he got elected.  This low-brow Chicago thug politician has amassed a $1 BILLION political warchest to acheive that end.  And simply consider the “core promise” of the Obama campaign that he would “transcend” Republican-Democrat politics, that he would “end the partisan and ideological wars,” that he would “move beyond the divisive politics of Washington,” that he would “bring Democrats, independents and Republicans together.”  And think about what Obama is doing right now.

And realize that this incredibly cynical liar is the most evil man who has ever held the office of the presidency of the United States.

We have never seen a more blatantly cynical political whore than Barack Obama.  And the formerly most liberal Senator in the United States is rightly THE most divisive president we have ever had.

ObamaCare is blatantly godawful and profoundly unconstitutional.  The Obama administration has already handed out more than 1,200 waivers to say, “You won’t have to do what Obama is going to force every other American to do.”

    Just when I thought the racist right couldn’t get any sick and disgusting, they keep proving my both right and wrong! Especially (excluding Matt) all of these pukes swallow the words of these scumbag Neo-Nazi Racists like Mark Levin and his fellow Neo-Nazi racists at the 2012 CPAC! I said last year that crap like this was gonna happen!

    I don’t get it, birth control wasn’t a big deal in America 20 years ago… why is it now?

    There’s been a backlash by conservatives, some religious, some not. Progress is made in this country by taking 2 steps forward, and then forced 1 step back. It amazes me that the religious groups think it is immoral to use birth control and that these Republicans, who are supposed to be about personal liberty, think that this is ok! Women have the right to CHOOSE whether they want to start a family or not. Every time I hear one of the Repubs speak, I realize how much I dislike them (except RP)

    The President arrived at a solution that satisfied all direct parties to the controversy. It is a compromise (if you even want to call it that) that gives up nothing—women will still be able to make their own decisions on birth control without having to run it past a bureaucrat, politician, or church official. It’s about choice and women are still the ones who get to make that choice. The GOP would like to take that choice away from women. President Obama, to his credit, didn’t let them.

    I have lived under 13 U.S. presidents, and I can say without hesitation that George W. Bush is the worst president of my lifetime, and he may well be the worst ever. One would have to go all the way back to James Buchanan to find a president of equal incompetence.

    The last thing America needs is another “businessman” like Bush. He had (whether he earned it or not) an MBA, for gosh sakes, and he was the worst president ever.

    Show me anywhere in the world where Obama is a Marxist. “There is none”

    Only in the mind of the “conservative” scum bags is our President a Marxist.

    This is the thing with conservatives. They don’t know the first thing about Marx or his writings, yet they label everyone a “Marxist” like the term actually means something.

    Anyone thinking that Obama is Anti-American needs to cover themselves up and brace for reality, soon.

    I wish you were joking but we all know that you are not and that GOP would be willing to do anything including destroying the country to keep Obama from a second term. Just look at what they did with the debt ceiling fiasco. The right held out held out held out saying they weren’t going to vote yes until their demands were meet. Well those demands were never meet the US credit rating took a hit. The only good thing from that was the American people knew who to blame the GOP.

    How can you even think President Obama is evil? That’s easy, because they are hate-filled racists! The scumbags here Believes anyone that does not look like him is Evil. Spoken like a racist and a refugee from the fact challenged Fox News.

    As for Obama being socialist or communist or far left. Name what he’s done that is socialist, communist, or far left. Easy NONEWHATSOEVER!

    Obama reacted the right way, and considered a thoughtful compromise to those who got their panties in a bunch over this non-issue.

    And no, Obama ISN’T a Muslim, Communist, Marxist, or leftist extremist.

    He has governed more to the center, than the last 4 POTUS’s.

    But who says that Obama wants to be a dictator – other than less than reliable sources as Limbaugh, Beck, and Fox Noise?

    Also, where in the Bible does it say “thou shalt not have contraception”?

    How about him being a dictator. Would you like to have a dictator? Bush Jr said we should have one, and he should be that one. Did you like that? I can’t imagine anything worse that a dictator. Obama is not a dictator; he just finally got aggressive after the pugs killed all things he wanted to do.

    It’s obvious why scumbags like you want him jailed Not for treason he never committed – or bribery he never did – or high crimes and misdemeanors he has never done!- not for any real impeachable offense – but only because the President is black! their only disgusting reason! It’s so obvious!

    Despite the incessant screams of “Traitor!” coming from the Right, Obama hasn’t actually committed treason You can’t impeach President Obama because he has not committed a high crime or misdemeanor, they only crime he committed was being black and they hate that! That’s why they create bogus charges of crimes!

    I’ll come out and say it. Anyone who calls Obama a “Clear and Present Danger to this country” is, without doubt, a fact-challenged racist. THAT is a fact! I noticed I remember past President’s doing stuff like this, but why is it Anti-American when President Obama does it? Racism or Double Standards, It’s one of the two.

    Oh, and by the way, check this out:

    http://blogcritics.org/politics/article/surprise-surprise-most-catholics-support-obamas/

    But you repeat these ridiculous lies anyway, because you can’t say the real reason you hate Obama: THEY CAN’T STAND A BLACK MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Questionman,

    Well, I’ll be blocking you after this ‘chat.’

    I would rather argue with the cockroach under the refrigerator than argue with a guy who claims that if you aren’t a Marxist liberal you must therefore be racist. Not that there’s much of a difference between you and the cockroach (other than that you’d be a lot easier to stomp on if you tried to crawl under my refrigerator).

    Frankly, I’m not bothering to read you past the

    I don’t get it, birth control wasn’t a big deal in America 20 years ago… why is it now?

    line. Two reasons why: 1) in saying that, you document that you are so ignorant that you are simply not worth having any kind of dialogue with, and 2) because you’d already documented 1) with your “All Republicans are racists” crap.

    So I’ll deal with that line and say goodbye to you.

    Birth control wasn’t a big deal in America 20 years ago, and it’s not a big deal NOW, you dumbass.

    NOBODY IS TRYING TO TAKE AWAY ANYBODY’S BIRTH CONTROL.

    What is very different indeed than your “20 years ago” is that 20 years ago we didn’t have a political party that was bound and determined to trample on the 1st Amendment and upon the right of people to live according to their most deeply held religious beliefs.

    20 years ago nobody was forcing the Catholic Church to provide birth control, abortifacients and sterilization. And it truly irritates me to have to spend a minute of my time pointing that obvious fact out to a fool.

    Now, I’m not going to waste another nanosecond of my time arguing with someone asinine enough to say:

    How about him being a dictator. Would you like to have a dictator? Bush Jr said we should have one, and he should be that one

    Unless someone would like to provide that quote where George W. Bush said anything even remotely close to that.

    Good riddance.
