Listen Carol. I have no sympathy for the Catholic Church on this issue. I think the Church wants this issue to be active during the election so they can get Catholics out to vote against the Democrats. I negotiated a satisfactory settlement with a representative of HHS and presented her offer to my pastor, the lawyers at the Camden, NJ diocese and the USCCB in Washington. They not only kept me out of the loop on this, but to my knowledge, they did not pursue the settlement. By now, I could have every Church organization exempt from the HHS Mandate. So I voted for President Obama to preserve Medicaid for my sister and daughter without regard for the HHS Mandate issue. If you have any questions, please contact me.
