I was appalled at the message White House Chief of Staff, Jacob Lew delivered about Obama care’s mandate of insurance coverage with respect to religious freedoms. The spin he put on it about giving women choices, is simply more of their Pinocchio politics. This is about the government over stepping its power and breaching the first amendment that prohibits the making of any law impeding the free exercise of religion. And when asked where the government had the right to do that, Mr. Lew said the administration granted itself the power in the Obama-care legislation…the one they “had to pass so they could see what was in it” (-Pelosi).
With some exceptions, our politicians will say and do anything for power and money. This administration has flip flopped on numerous campaign promises and now is stepping outside the bounds of our constitution. If we do not say no, we will wake up one day and find our freedoms gone. Free speech, freedom of religion, freedom to peaceably assemble, freedom against unreasonable search & seizure - to name a few - are indeed precious things. Think about that and then go to goooh.com and help restore integrity to government. Time is short. 2012 is the year.
