What he does not write about and I wish he would, is: First, the lameness of the B.O.'s about-face -- I mean, phrases like, "and as a Christian" -- oh, please, give me a break in life. And second, and perhaps more importantly that what he has done is really smoke and mirrors. In essence, the insurance companies will recover these increased costs by passing them on to the employers (perhaps especially religious ones) through increased rates for current programs minus the contraceptives. So you'll still have the Catholic institutions and others who object to paying for them, doing so indirectly but not being guilty of actually providing them. To those who are sincere in their beliefs -- this slight of hand just is not sufficient.
And finally, I would not put it past this administration to have even suggested to the insurance companies to take the 'virtual' hit (after all, look at what this administration has done for them with obamacare), but pass the costs on as they see fit. I mean, do you really hear any of them screaming blue bloody murder? I don't.
