and Atlas Shrugged
There goes religious freedom.
I would not comply with this.
As a VietNam vet who had 5 dead Americans on the tailgate of my APC during TET 1968 while still in hostile contact with the enemy, I feel the same way.
Since when is it the government's job to make it illegal to offer certain kinds of health insurance policies? If the employee doesn't like the health insurance policy offered, just as if they don't like the salary or vacation hours offered, they're free to work somewhere else.
What if the government required all health insurance policies to cover female circumcision as an option for girls? Would you be okay with that?
what is going to happen is that those that have lower end jobs, will end up working 29 hours or less a week to keep the employer from paying for the health care cost.
we will people working at least two jobs to be able to support themselves without benefits.
alot of these businesses will have more employees working for the same hours available.
business owners are logical. politicians are not.
Those corporations shouldn't be allowed to discriminate against everyone else by operating a segment of their business according to religious standards and not tailoring other plans for other religions.
I am shrugging next year when I shut down 40 years of a family business that obama killed. I am John Galt.
The whole point of the article is the First Amendment angle. Is there no limit to your First Amendment rights when they start adversely affecting the lives of other people?
I don’t think that anyone ever tried to defend a whites only hiring policy on the basis of religious conscience. Actually the most egregious example of a whites only hiring policy was the Electrical Workers and Machinist Union and I don’t think that they claimed any religious exemption.
Remember, the racists were mostly Democrats.
Businesses that have these rulings inflicted on them should turn health care into a profit center for themselves by adding a 100% mark-up on the policy they provide top their employees. It’s time for the voters/employees to suffer the consequences of their decisions.
There are an awful lot of things I would do before killing a baby. Basically, no judge could make me ~ not under any conditions ~ not ever.
When is this nightmare going to end!?
Actually, he (Muslim or otherwise) is required by the government to provide its employees with free contraception and/or abortions, regardless of their religious principles.
“has the right to force”
All you need to know about 0bama and the Federal government in 5 words.
I draw the line at killing babies. The judge says the governmet stepped over the line. He, though, does not draw the line at killing babies ~ and that's a problem.
I hope your buddies in business do this because that will hasten the creation of a true single-payer system in this country since obviously the wonderfully benevolent job creators can’t be bothered to either provide adequate policies on their own or pay their employees enough so they can go out and get their own policy.
Since when does freedom of religion depend on us being a religious organization?? This is outrageous and unconstitutional. I refuse to fund abortions. FUBO.
