As I said, most did read it. Many were involved in writing it. The only people saying that they didn't have time reading it are republicans. Because they want people to believe that the bill was pushed through too quickly for the bill to have been read. Problem here is, most of the bill was 6 months old when the final version made it to vote and the final version was nearly 2 weeks old when it got its first vote. The Senate version, in its entirety, was voted on by the House since there wasn't enough time to negotiate between the two versions. The Senate version was nearly 9 weeks old when the House got that vote. Anyone that can honestly say that they didn't read it, or have a staffer read it in 9 weeks, is a liar.<quoted text>
All of it for not reading the whole thing. These religious complaints were part of it since the bill passed. What gives ,someone didn't want to touch it til now or didn't read it.
I wont name the institutions that are exempt from medical coverage for children til age 26 but they are there. Probably the largest employer in the Valley.
Insider trading for elected officials to protect us from the same abuseses ? People go to jail for that kind of activity.
Church and religion is a racket . Agreed , so is war and politics.
The reason the contraception issue is coming up now, isn't because someone finally read the bill, it's because that part of the bill became enforced this year. Just like the individual mandate and employer mandate aren't enforced until 2014. The other reason, Santorum is going to possibly be the GOP candidate, so the GOP is making a big push to make religion an important issue.
The largest employer in the Lehigh Valley is Lehigh Valley Hospital Center. Their insurance carrier does cover dependent children to the age of 26.
