Key Dem: A Little Too Much Tyranny
The political meltdown over contraception offers voters a chance to finally understand two big motivators of the left; its contempt for religion, and its contempt for the Constitution. That reality continues to be driven home as Democrats, some close allies of the president, break ranks on the attack on the church.
Tim Kaine, a former Democratic National Committee chairman running for Senate in Virginia this year, also said the White House should revisit the rule’s exemptions for religious organizations. The current policy does not apply to churches, but institutions such as Catholic hospitals and universities have to comply.
“I think the White House made a good decision in including a mandate for contraception coverage in the Affordable Care Act insurance policy, but I think they made a bad decision in not allowing a broad enough religious-employer exemption,” Kaine said in a radio interview, according to a transcript provided by his campaign.
In other words, Kaine supports the tyranny of ObamaCare - he just thinks, in this case, the tyranny goes too far.
