So nice to see all the tolerance displayed by the NOW in this declaration.

Absolute power is incorruptible, otherwise, the power is not absolute. These sorts of people were already corrupted.
Not that it would matter to Ireland, et al, but it would be nice if these people so upset with the Hobby Lobby decision were asked what basic healthcare needs are being denied here. No women is being denied healthcare. Period. Yet these non-intellectuals keep uttering this canard. Corner them on this (if possible).
On an issue like this, how do you have a discussion? Ireland wonders about the business practices of a Christian Scientist, an issue that has NEVER presented itself and is actually answered within the Hobby Lobby decision. She keeps talking about women's health needs being denied because of this decision, yet cites no medical authorities to support her claims (she can't). Like so many on the left, she has no idea that Hobby Lobby supports contraceptive services and that Catholic organizations, which should not have to offer contraceptives for birth control because of Federal law, still allow for the use of contraceptives when they are actually needed for basic health needs (which does not include any of the forms of contraception not provided by Hobby Lobby). Facts don't matter to this person.
I know some on the left will claim right-wing judicial activism with these decisions, however, these are solid, we'll-crafted decisions applying the law to the cases at hand. No more, no less. If only more cases were decided in this manner.
Management is represented through our elected officials. Work harder to vote new & different representatives into office.
Be fair. Insurance companies are not raising rates just to "protect their line." Insurance companies, by law, need to maintain certain levels of reserve assets/cash in order to make sure they can cover the expenses of the people they insure. If the pool these companies insure uses more medical care, not only do the healthcare expenditures increase, but so too do the reserves these companies need to maintain. Also, there will be an increase in staff needed to process the additional claims and clients created by Obamacare, meaning the non-medical cost of healthcare also increases.
What a nice story. Made my day.
Remember Eastwood's empty chair? The intellect at work for us. I'm not sure which is worse, the empty chair or Reid's inability to ignore the chair's persuasive power.
