    Perhaps it's more a sign that when you shove things down peoples throats, it usually doesn't work out the way the shovers want.

    Regardless.....the harder you make it to get contraceptives, the more likely unwanted pregnancies will occur which means increase abortions. This is true whether you like it or not. By making contraceptives harder to get, these Christian lobby groups have insured that more abortions will occur. I wonder how they feel about the blood on their hands.

    I am CEO of my own one owner corporation. I certainly hold beliefs. Every CEO and board member in every business in America is a living breathing human being who has his/her own set of beliefs. You cannot separate the corporation from the owner, CEO, or board of directors. They are part and parcel of the corporation. Corporations are given status as a separate legal entity for the purpose of paying taxes, suing, and being sued, etc. But they are run by human beings.

    LOL, not totally expected because of course Medicare with its trillions of unfunded liabilities is a great indication of a successful single payer system. And of course there is the 17.5 trillion dollar debt creating approximately 250 billion in debt service a year that certainly could be used to truly help people but then again that doesn't resonate with liberals, does it?

    What is it about a massive central govt. that really interests people like you. Do you have any idea what the role is of your state and local govt. really is? Seems to me that the one size fits all solutions you people promote ignores the individual cost of living, the individual state and local cost of living, the local and state responsibilities. Is it as expensive to live in TX as it is California? Are the tax structures the same, federal, state, and local? Tell me why a one size fits all program will work in healthcare?

    Personally, yes. But I am pro-choice. I would like to see no abortions take place, however, I don't believe that the government should be the one making that decision.

    I think Obama thought he'd have at least some conservative support, since he got the idea for the mandate from conservatives. Just saying.

    The only contraceptive HL objected to was the type that causes an abortion. The employees who want this coverage can purchase their coverage through the exchanges.
