Everyone knows Obamacare is a colossal failure. On the level of Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2. Most of us want to see it flushed down the drain. We haven’t slain the beast yet, but we’re getting there. Thanks to the Trump Administration, we just scored a pretty big victory. The Obamacare birth control mandate? Consider it aborted.
The Trump administration will allow virtually any employer to claim a religious or moral objection to Obamacare’s birth control coverage mandate under a sweeping rollback announced Friday.
The new policy, which takes effect immediately, reignites a fierce battle over one of the health care law’s most controversial provisions. The requirement to provide FDA-approved contraception at no cost was long opposed by religious groups that heavily favored Trump, and has been wrapped up in legal challenges for more than five years.
“The United States has a long history of providing conscience protections in the regulation of health care for entities and individuals with objections based on religious beliefs or moral convictions,” the administration wrote in new rules.
I like this.
Requiring a Catholic employer to distribute birth control pills? I’m pretty sure that doesn’t jibe with the First Amendment. Seeing as birth control is a major no bueno in their religion. Leftists are quick to protect a Muslim’s right to
wage jihad worship. Christians? Not so much.
This is a good start. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a full repeal of Obamacare, before insurers bow out of the industry completely. Or people have to sell a kidney to pay the premium to cover their dialysis treatments. But, I have a hunch that’s what leftists wanted in the first place.
Be excited over this victory, but don’t lose focus. There’s still a long way to go toward casting Obamacare back into the hell of bad ideas from whence it came. Hopefully, we’ll keep hacking away at
Obama’s legacy this abomination of a bill one limb at a time.
Let’s not even get started on “Medicare for all”
