White House: We’ll Decide Whether Someone Is Hurt By Contraception Mandate

No, really

(Politico) The Obama administration Wednesday said the Affordable Care Act contraceptive coverage regulations are fair — and they don’t really hurt the Denver-based religious organization that got a temporary New Year’s Eve reprieve from Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

“We defer to the Department of Justice on litigation matters, but remain confident that our final rules strike the balance of providing women with free contraceptive coverage while preventing non-profit religious employers with religious objections to contraceptive coverage from having to contract, arrange, pay, or refer for such coverage,” a White House official said.

Obviously, Team Obama knows if you’re hurt more than you do. Your feelings are just a part of their daily talking points and executive orders.

Let’s not forget that the contraception mandate, which includes sterilization procedures and abortifacients, is not a mandated requirement per It’s The Law. It does not appear within the text of the the Affordable Care Act. This was created by the bureaucrats who were given massive authority to craft the law by the law. The ACA wouldn’t be harmed in the least if they did away with the rule. But, Team Obama and the Dems needed a way to pander to their unhinged liberal base, and especially the 30 and under crowd, so free condoms, birth control pills, and Plan B are being used as candy bars to continue voting Democrat.
