Boehner Indicates GOP House May Fund Obama's 'Attack on Religious Liberty'
Oh, yeah, the Obama Administration's new regulation that "requires virtually all health care plans to cover, without cost-sharing, sterilizations, contraception and abortion-inducing drugs" is scheduled to go into effect this coming Wednesday.
In February of this year Boehner called the regulation "an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country." To date Boehner's House Republicans have not lifted a finger to stop the funding of the regulation. At a press conference last Thursday the mealy-mouthed and unprincipled Boehner said:
“We’re continuing to work with those groups around the country who believe that their religious liberties are being infringed to try to come to a resolution of this issue. Sometimes resolving these issues can sometimes best be done other than legislative avenues. So we’re continuing to work with them on the best way forward.”In other words the tan and two-faced Leader of the House Republicans wants Catholics to swallow the regulation whole. If you recall earlier this year Obama betrayed Catholic Archbishop Timothy Dolan on this issue, apparently promising him one thing and doing another. Now Dolan's getting the exact same treatment from Boehner.
As the old saying goes, with friends like this who needs enemies!
