  •  Third frame makes IMPORTANT serious point: (15+ / 0-)

    If an employer "indirectly subsidizes" birth control by obtaining a group insurance policy, even if the insurer pays for the birth control and the employee askes for it, then the employer "indirectly subsizes" birth control by paying wages, too.    You can take all the arguments about "insurance" and insert "wages" and the arguments about "indirect subsidy" are equally true, and equally relevant to morals.

    So the slippery slope is that the employer will have to make sure that wages aren't used for sin, just like the insurance policy.  And that means that laws against employment discrimination among others are out the window.  

    Romney is campaigning to be President SuperBain; his cure is to cut wages, end pensions, let companies go bankrupt, and let the assets of production go dark or be sold to China. He really thinks thats the best of all possible Americas.
