HHS Mandate ‘Must Not Stand’

John Boehner:

On January 20, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services announced that under President Obama’s health care law, religiously-affiliated institutions in the United States will be required to cover contraceptive benefits in all insurance policies, regardless of whether the provision of such benefits violates their religious beliefs.  I believe that with this action, the Obama administration has violated the religious freedoms of faith-based institutions across America.     

this mandate is not about whether or not we as citizens agree with the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Instead it is about insisting our government stay within our Constitutional boundaries.

….

The rule put forth by the Department of Health & Human Services must not stand.  The Obama Administration must re-evaluate this decision and reverse it.  If it does not, I believe the United States Congress, acting on behalf of the American people, will.

He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More

The Beatification of Beto

The media’s treatment of Texas Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke wasn’t the most egregiously unfair coverage of the past year -- that would be the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh -- but it ranks among 2018’s most annoying. The endless glowing profiles of O’Rourke in every publication from Vanity Fair to ... Read More
