Besides your deceptive assertion that the GOP is 'opposed to birth control', a bigger issue is the question: Since when did the federal government have the authority to mandate that any business provide any product or service for no cost?

The correct answer is that it can't, but this administration doesn't care very much about unconstitutional intrusions in to private, corporate and religious affairs.

By the way, if 98% of women have used or are using birth control, apparently they have plenty of access to it already. There's no need to force employers, and church-affiliated organizations to provide it.

Dosnn't Congress have anything better to do than to regulate a person's INDIVIDUAL choice??

Doen't they have spending to SLASH in order to BALANCE the BUDGET??

Congress needs to 'run the country'... and not try to regulate a person's LIBERTY!!

Republicans are for less government for big business and more rules and regulations for people.

The country would be a lot better off if they'd stay out of church and out of people's bedrooms.

Wrong again; if they are not opposed to birth control, then they are pandering and lying.

An agreement is not a mandate; but your basic assumption that the Federal government has no power is just a superstition.

That's the most ignorant thing I've ever seen you put in print, and that's a tough assignment in your case.

Manchin is one of the sell-outs. He proved he can be bought in the insurance mandate argument. Now he has been proven to be an idiot, too, regarding the executive order that paid for his vote.
