    1. It isn't free since they are either paying their premiums or getting health insurance through employers, meaning it is a benifit of their job and they are working for that benefit, meaning it ain't free in the same way that when employers are paying employees, it ain't the same as them just giving away free money.

    2. The point of the hearing was to discuss the affects of this legislation, and those who it affects the most were not represented. Issa has turned his committee into a bad joke.

    So does supporting the notion that women should be excluded from a discussion that deals with our reproductive care.

    I am saying that unless members of said group are actually represented they don't have representation. That is duh... Just like why Colonialists got angry when the king of England said we will represent your interests with out you sending anyone how is that unfair.... Really its common sense stuff.

    I'm not saying they should be intentionally excluded from a debate on whether or not they should have a right taken away from them (which isn't happening, whether the law goes into affect or not). What I'm saying is that this hearing had NOTHING to do with the women and EVERYTHING to do with the churches. When it's about women, let 'em come...whatever.

    So should we start asking kindergarteners to voice their opinions on Superintendent candidates?
    Should we start asking steal workers to voice their opinions on what color to paint play grounds?

    This hearing isn't about women's rights.

    So in your analogy women equal kindergardeners picking the superintendent? Now that's sexist.

    Dude, get it through your head already.

    This is directly from the article:

    After more prodding from Maloney, Issa turned to the heart of the dispute between himself and the Democrats on the committee.

    "We are not having a hearing on the policies or the details related to the single issue of Obamacare and this particular mandate," he said, "This hearing is about religious freedom."

    Ok - well she was asking them - the memebers of the church: why there weren't any women there.

    So: what do women of the faith have to say? Maybe next time they'll bring a few along to explain things from a female perspective. Is the church afraid of this?

    Should they also have included a proportionate number of representatives from all races present in this country as well?
