Mitch McConnell is the world’s most dishonest politician. He makes used car salesmen look like saints. He likes to tell black-is-white type lies that are obviously false to anyone who knows anything about the subject. He is speaking to those who have never heard of the issue.
For example, Obama called for hospitals receiving federal money to offer full services, including contraception. Some Catholics, for reasons that cannot enunciate, believe contraception is wicked and wish to block people who do not share that nutty belief from using contraception. They want the hospitals they own to take the federal money but refuse contraceptive services. McConnell said that Obama was trying to force religious beliefs on people. That is what Henry VIII, did telling the church what to believe. Obama did no such thing. Catholics can believe whatever they want. They can use contraception or avoid it. Hospitals can provide contraception or not. They just cannot interfere with other people’s access to contraception if they take federal money to care for their reproductive health. It is a simple issue. If a hospital takes money to provide a service, it damn well better provide it.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
