Contraception, an issue created out of thin air. An issue that not only wasn’t an issue, but nobody and I mean nobody was talking about it… until 1/7/2012. That’s when George Stephanopoulos asked this question, “Governor Romney, do you believe that states have the right to ban contraception? Or is that trumped by a constitutional right to privacy?“ WTF? Where did that come from? Now we know.
On 1/20/2012 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius released a statement. A statement forcing
…health insurance plans to cover preventive services for women including recommended contraceptive services without charging a co-pay, co-insurance or a deductible.
Out of the goodness of their hearts though it does give religious organizations an extra year to figure out how to violate their religious beliefs:
…nonprofit employers who, based on religious beliefs, do not currently provide contraceptive coverage in their insurance plan, will be provided an additional year, until August 1, 2013, to comply with the new law.
A direct assault on the first amendment. The First Amendment of the Constitution in no uncertain terms says that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The One and his administration are now attempting to take our eyes off of the total violation of the constitution and the threat to all of our liberties that this HHS mandate is. They have decided to just lie and make this about republicans wanting to deny women access to contraception. Again I ask… WTF?
Timothy P. Carney over at the Washington Examiner says it best:
It’s hard to recall a political cause as dependent on dishonesty as the support for Kathleen Sebelius’s ObamaCare contraception mandate. Mandate proponents attack opponents for wanting to ban contraception, or at least for “politicizing” contraception.
Don’t fall for the deception. The lies from The One’s administration will continue and they are counting on you to remain silent. Silence is no longer an option if you ask me. The fact that no one wants to ban contraception or deny women access to it makes no difference to Dear Leader. Obama and his administration will continue telling you that lie until you cry B.S. and let him know you’re on to him.
Violating the constitution and stealing your liberties are not minor issues. They are the true issues surrounding the contraception deception. Do not fall for the lies, stand up for your liberties and freedoms.
