This is truly alarming, if not surprising. Ed Haislmaier and Jennifer A. Marshall have done the reporting about the Free Birth Control Rule that the mainstream media won’t. 

This episode has confirmed my suspicion that seizing power for the bureaucracy was the primary point of Obamacare — even beyond expanding access to health insurance. Such centralized control gives the government the weapons and the pretexts — increasing efficiency in the provision of health care and promoting “wellness” — to smash the principles of limited government and transform us into a bureaucratic state. In other words, the U.S. is on a course that will turn Washington, D.C., into Brussels. Just wait until the cost-benefit boards and the Independent Payment Advisory Board come on line. Then we will see what bureaucratic power really looks like!
