    And no-one will mandate that people use the insurance to cover birth control. If they don't believe in it, then they don't use it. This type of health insurance coverage is mandated in 28 states already. Shall we just exempt all church related "medical" organizations? Jehovah's-anti-transfusions, scientologists-anti-psychiatry & all psych meds, christrian scientists-any conventional medical facilities; and other groups. The administration backing down on this issue could open the it up for all such groups.

    If those groups are the ones providing the insurance, then yes. This is a major loser for Obama. There is no way he can enforce it. The church's will not back off here. So how does Obama go about enforcing this?

    The White House struggled Wednesday to contain the growing uproar over its birth-control mandate, with Democrats peeling off one by one in what has become an increasingly divisive election-year controversy.

    Pressure to roll back the new contraception policy mounted quickly as the day wore on, driven by divisions among Democrats, mixed messages from President Obama’s advisers and a constant drumbeat from the GOP.


    “It’s becoming a thorny problem for the White House and it appears to only be getting worse,” said one Democratic strategist. “The politically astute move would be to modify this thing, and quick.”

    Asked if the administration should shift course, a former senior administration official said, “I don’t see how they couldn’t. It’s pretty bad.”

    I'm not sure what they are proposing here but it is setting the GPS to the status quo in the end.

    I dont know where you are getting this particular bit of information, its not true. Not even Chris Matthews is willing to take the 28 state administration spin, its more like 3.

    What a load of crap.

    Answer the question below, Obama.

    “The White House Fact Sheet is riddled with doublespeak and contradiction,” Smith continued. “It states, for example, that religious employers ‘will not’ have to pay for abortion pills, sterilization and contraception, but their ‘insurance companies’ will. Who pays for the insurance policy? The religious employer.”

    Not backing off.

    Catholic bishops said Friday night that they would not support the Obama administration's proposed compromise on a controversial rule that requires most employers to fully cover contraception in their workers' health plans.
