    I heard on a radio show the other night about your fight over this. It was very informative and what I heard makes the contraceptive mandate look like nothing. One thing that is being argued is that they are not treating all religions the same. Apparently the Amish are exempted because they believe if you take insurance you are testing God (I may not have this worded correctly). What what not said was Muslims are exempted because of some reason (I had read this before but not sure. Think they consider it like gambling). Because they do not respect ALL religions this puts the mandate in a bad light. Although they would still have a fight, if they didn’t exempt any religion it might be different.

    Another thing really bothers me and hope this is not true. The Administration will eventually fund abortions but it will come out of the taxpayers pocket. Also there will be a Preventive Health Committee which Sebilius will decide what justifies treatment. If you are older and have cancer, you may not be considered worth the cost,

    I may have heard this wrong because I cannot believe anything this EVIL could be happening- I am scared
