McConnell: GOP Will Fight To Let ANY Employer Deny Birth Control Coverage


Not satisfied with President Obama’s new religious accommodation, Republicans will move forward with legislation by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) that permits any employer to deny birth control coverage in their health insurance plans, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Sunday.
 . . . Tellingly, McConnell was eager to keep the focus on religious freedom as opposed to contraception itself.
 “The fact that the White House thinks this is about contraception is the whole problem. This is about freedom of religion, it’s right there in the First Amendment. You can’t miss it — right there in the very first amendment to our Constitution,” McConnell said. “What the overall view on the issue of contraception is has nothing to do with an issue about religious freedom.”

The republicans are hiding behind religion to avoid admitting the truth. The truth is, the insurance companies have long complained that they don't want to pay any claims so they can maximum profits. Not giving us what we paid for was at one time called fraud, but republicans have for the most part sided with the insurance companies to maximize profts by taking our money and refusing for any reason they can find to deny our claims. Their real problem with healthcare reform is that it requires insurance companies to pay the claims.
