As far as complaints about rising costs of health insurance go, mandating BC is WAY down on the list.
You pay a pittance for the BC mandate, but you do not pay for others BC (just like you don't pay for anyone else's cancer treatments). You pay for the services you are receiving.Not a proper analogy. Tucker, let me explain it again, when you join a risk pool you agree to covered/not covered and you also agree to whatever conditions are contained in the policy. This means you pay to be risked with everyone else agreeing to be in the pool and you pay for the pool, meaning whatever liabilities the company incurs. So no matter what Obama and Sebilius claim YES you do pay for a birth control mandate.
Saying "My costs for health insurance could increase slightly because of the BC mandate" is very different from saying "The BC mandate means I have to pay for other people's birth control".
One is an honest and accurate statement, the other is saying you pay for other people's birth control.
