Libs Line Up Against Obama Policy
Lefty writer/commentator Mark Shields is one of the outraged over the White House policy that would force Catholic organizations to offer contraception on health policies for workers - and Andrea Mitchell is amazed to find a fellow liberal opposing the president.
The fallout is cataclysmic for the White House and for the President. And he's left them out to dry. I mean he really has. Just a policy that I think is, quite frankly, indefensible.
There are many others.
Former Democratic congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper, a Catholic from Erie, Pennsylvania, cast a crucial vote in favor of Obamacare in 2010. She lost her seat that November in part because of her controversial support of Obamacare.
But Dahlkemper said recently that she would have never voted for the health care bill had she known that the Department of Health and Human Services would require all private insurers, including Catholic charities and hospitals, to provide free coverage of contraception, sterilization procedures, and the "week-after" pill "ella" that can induce early abortions.
