Chipping away at morals and values, one sliver at a time. Remember when Obamacare was being planned behind closed doors in Washington, being hatched, plotted and rammed through in spite of what the public wanted? When Nancy Pelosi said "We have to pass it to see what's in it?" Remember when the subject of abortion came up and Obama and the Dems said, "Oh, No, there is no provision in this bill that lets the government pay for abortions, in fact, they are prohibited." And the skeptics amongst us said "We'll see." Well, now we see. Today the DHHS and Ms. Sebelius mandated coverage for "women's health." They are forcing health insurance companies to cover all birth control methods, voluntary sterilization, emergency contraception (like Ella, Plan B, and morning after abortion pills), breast feeding information and guidance, breast pumps, domestic violence screenings, diabetes screenings, H.I.V testing, HPV testing, annual wellness checks, etc., etc. Morning after abortion, anyone?
Insurance providers are now forced by Obama to provide this coverage to ALL women, rich, poor or otherwise, without co-payments, deductibles or any other charges. Now who do you think is going to pay for this? It isn't the government. The government is BROKE. Oh, you think the insurance companies will pick up the cost? You think so? Really? Seriously? Think again. This cost is going to be passed along to every American who has health insurance. And soon that will be everyone because we will be "mandated" to have insurance - unless the Supreme Court stops the madness.
We have gone from providing free birth control and womens' health services to poor people to mandating that we subsidize care for those who can afford it, who are currently paying for it themselves, and guess what? We are all going to pay for it whether we use it or not.
It is mandatory coverage. It is not FREE. Insurers will simply raise the cost of the premiums to all of us to pay for this mandate. So you may have no copay or deductible, but watch out, there go your premiums, up, up and away.
And jobs? How many jobs do you think will be lost in the insurance industry due to this mandate? More regulation equals less employment. Wish the inept Socialists running this country realized that.
