Health insurance plans must cover birth control as preventive care for women, with no copays, the Obama administration said Monday in a decision with far-reaching implications for health care as well as social mores.Now let me ask this question. If your auto insurance were required to pay for oil changes and tire rotations would your insurance premiums go up, down or stay the same?
The requirement is part of a broad expansion of coverage for women's preventive care under President Barack Obama's health care law. Also to be covered without copays are breast pumps for nursing mothers, an annual "well-woman" physical, screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer and for diabetes during pregnancy, counseling on domestic violence, and other services.
"These historic guidelines are based on science and existing (medical) literature and will help ensure women get the preventive health benefits they need," said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
I think we can assume that health insurance premiums will go up even further since insurance companies aren't inclined to eat their cost increases. As a result, do you think that more employers will offer insurance to their employees, pass along the additional costs or eat the additional costs because they're such nice guys ?
So once again, we have a liberal policy impacting a large segment of society. who gets impacted the most?
1) Lady Gaga
2) Barbara Boxer
3) A single mom office worker
4) Carly Fiorina
Many people point towards Obama claiming he's a socialist. That would actually be better than what he really is.
See, when a socialist government takes control of a business sector, they are responsible for the price of product/service and delivery of said product/service. In other words, they're accountable.
The Obamunists are far worse. Let's call them regulists.
What they do is inflict all kinds of regulation, taxes and additional costs on companies and then blame them for the additional aggravation to the public. It's worse than socialism because they get to hold their hands up and blame everyone but themselves for the poor and increasingly expensive product/service.
