- Congresswoman Boo'ed Over HHS Mandate
My feeling on this HHS mandate "accommodation" is that it's going to be very costly for Obama because it shows American voters what he and his people are really like.
"You don't want to pay for it?" They say "Fine... you can just pay the insurance company, and they'll pay for it." Then without asking how Catholics feel about it, they pronounce the issue settled, and try to move on.
But Catholics don't think it's settled - not at all. And the more often the Democrats go out there and tell us that we're all OK with it when we obviously are not, the more they will alienate us.
I say 'us' only in the strictest sense. I'm hardly a model Catholic - not even close. But I think I've defended the church enough both in my private life and on this blog, that I can call myself a member, even if the idea of membership in anything makes me uncomfortable.
