Righties despise government and public service. And to obstruct, defeat or sabotage government/public service, Righties will do anything.
Including crying wolf.
We hear it every year with Fox Lies' "War on Christmas," we heard it with Iraq's "Weapons of Mass Destruction," "Obamacare's Death Panels," and State-bankrupting "Cadillac Public Employee Plans." The list of GOP exaggerated false alarms are overwhelming (it's practically all they do when not outright lying) but this one over employer-provided medications for women puts them in the Floppers Hall of Fame! Move over NBA.
The proposed, not implemented, "plan" exempts churches ~ although DePaul University the largest Catholic university provides contraceptives to female employees, and Planned Parenthood (the new ACORN) doesn't provide free contraceptives ~ and wouldn't have taken effect until 2014. The issue is a red herring AND a Strawman. Because since 2000, employers and insurers have had to provide birth control as part of preventive care for all women by law.
Obama head faked and the Righties flopped, for everyone to see. So he gave the ball to insurers. Women get their due coverage and the church has given their blessings. But Republicons are still flopping on the floor waiting for a foul call.
As to government/service hating Righties, GOP, Republicons seeking governmental offices, it makes you wonder? Then you realize, these haters strive to show that government doesn't work, even if it kills them.
Make no mistake, Christmas-Destruction-Death Panel-Cadillac-Contraceptives are no more real than the elusive "Job Creators"!!! Move over Big Foot.
