The king compromises, well not really

I waited a few days to write about this because I really thought Obama would come up with a waiver for the churches and business who's conscience would not allow them to pay for abortions and other types of contraceptives. I find it strange that he didn't supply waivers like those supplied for some of his unions and large employers that wanted to opt out of government controlled healthcare. I'm tired of waiting. Lets take some time to get the time line right. The presidents healthcare plan included violating the first amendment. Put simply he is forcing individuals and business entities to purchase health insurance for their employees that includes contraceptive devices, sterilization surgeries and abortions in direct violation of their beliefs. The president must have, in part, agreed that this is a violation of the first amendment to the Constitution of the United States because he created a compromise. He stated that the organizations and businesses didn't have to pay but the insurance companies would have to provide these products and surgeries for free. Insurance companies do not provide surgeries and products for free. So, they will have to add it to the bill. I know the president knows this. Any citizen of these United States knows this, and I am told he is one. His plan: All non-waivered employers will pay for insurance policies who will provide abortion and contraceptive products. His compromise: All non-waivered employers will pay for insurance policies who will provide abortion and contraceptive products. Do you see the difference? I don't either. So, if the first was a violation of the first amendment then why are we supposed to be happy with the compromise? I'm not.o has the power to, is violating a constitutional amendment. (again) Where are the minute men? I'm ready to sign up and support whoever is fighting for my rights and I know I am not alone on this. We beat back tyranny once in the backwoods of this country, and some are getting ready to do it again.
