Obama Had Said We Could Keep Our Healthcare Plan...BUT Now Obamacare Forces Catholic School To Dump Its Healthcare Plan

Obamacare: Catholic school dumps its health plan

Beltway Confidential

The Franciscan University of Steubenville, a small but well-known Catholic college in eastern Ohio, has its own answer to Obamacare. It is cancelling its student health insurance policy in order to avoid complications from the Obama administration’s mandate to cover contraception, sterilizations, and abortifacient drugs.

The school notes on its website that even if it had kept its insurance policy available to students, Obamacare’s other requirements would have caused students’ premiums to double. The school will continue to provide cheap basic medical care for students at the low cost of $5 per visit, but they are on their own for more expensive treatments.

I, too, love the self-made creative caricatures of each of Wild Thing’s posts with the different outfits, long legs and hair, sexy blinking eyes, and pet companions of dog Sebastian and cat Missy. I look forward to them. They’re fun. They keep me coming back.

The horrendous, egregious, and all-life consuming Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which took all of 2009 in writing and deliberation was passed by a Democrat controlled Senate 60-39 and House 219-212 and signed into law in March 2010 by this President as their signature legislative achievement in a dubious/corruptly seen process reaffirmed by the thousands of waivers from the Act handed out by his administration mostly to unions, businesses in Chicago and Speaker Pelosi's San Francisco.

A majority of the fifty states filed actions in federal court challenging the constitutionality of the Act during 2010 and 2011 with the Supreme Court finally hearing oral arguments this past March 2012.

In less than an hour, I read the Supreme Court's transcript (less than 200 pages) of those oral arguments here:

If you take time to read them, you, too, will conclude that a majority of the Supreme Court Justices will vote to declare the Act unconstitutional when the decision is handed down next month in late June.

It will be a hard blow to this President and the 111th Congress that wrote and passed it.

More importantly it will be a pivotal milestone in this President's reelection campaign with continued growing popular resentment highlighting the continuing perceived failures of this administration.

Even if the Supreme Court were to decide differently, the Act will be repealed by the 113th Congress seated next January, with Republican majorities in both houses, and a Republican President who together will have the hardest time finding a way to pay for the never before seen profligate deficit spending and cumulative debt of the previous three Congresses and their dereliction of duty of never even passing a budget.

There will be consequences to the now $16 trillion and growing in public debt, some of it severe in so many ways.

And somehow we still have American citizens voting for and sending Democrats to Washington.
