    When this all started and Obama came out and basically took most of the heat off himself by saying that  (paraphrasing):
    "No "religious based" institution will have to pay for coverage of contraceptives but the insurance companies will have to offer it to their employees free of additional charge, if they want it."
    Problem solved?  Apparently not according to republicans.
    Instead of accepting this as a victory, most of the republicans, including all of those running for President, have basically all tried to jump off the same cliff at the same time with their endless pandering to the far right.  Some now want to pass a bill to allow ANY employer to deny coverage for contraceptives because of religious objectives or others want to allow insurance companies to refuse to cover them if they have "religious objectives".  This return to the anti-woman policies of the pre-1950's and early 60's is laughable at best.  This could be the "gift that keeps on giving" to democrats in the fall.  Please, please repugs keep this up and then go ahead and JUMP!

    Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs?
