ObamaCare And Catholicism

Dear Editor,

A recent writer to The Wave related the facts of Obamacare as to the Catholic Church. His letter was accurate but this involves more than the Catholic Church. It involves every religion and is more than contraception. However, let’s put the religious angle aside for a moment.

Let’s also put aside the clear violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution. Let’s also put aside the so-called “conscience clause” and have a cogent and intelligent discussion.

Cogent and intelligent? How can one even get to that point when the Obama Administration looks at you with a straight face and says, by the way, we have granted over 1400 exemptions to the plan. McDonalds, AARP, Jack in the Box, Waffle House, PepsiCo, teamsters locals nationwide, United Federation of Teachers, Firekeepers Casino, the State of Nevada (Harry Reid country) as well as Bill Miller’s BarBQ Enterprises, etc., etc., etc. are all EXEMPT from Obamacare.

This fact alone should have every American incensed. Oh, but you’re a teacher and it doesn’t affect you! You’re a Teamster member and it doesn’t affect you! You work for AARP and it doesn’t affect you!

Wake up America. This has little to do with contraception/abortion and the Catholic Church. It affects ALL of us.
