    for health care items that private employers didn't want to cover.  Why not all of it?

      they could rule out all the fundies refusing to pay into a government program that provides women's health care?

      They already managed to carve out funding for abortions...with this decision, contraception isn't too far behind.

        those who think single payer is a panacea to deal with this issue that it has the potential to have problems, too.  Once we allowed the vile Henry Hyde to politicize women's reproductive health, I knew this would be a battle.  I never knew it would last forty fucking years.  The Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate, and I curse every one of them for not having the balls to stop this in 1975.  We wouldn't be where we are today if someone back then had the political courage to tell the wing nuts that they had no right to take away women's access to reproductive health care.  And now my daughter will have to fight this fight yet again.  God, I hate the right-wing religious.  They never do anything but make other people's lives miserable.

        Doesn't mean I don't want singe payer, though, and I would love the irony of a nutty right-wing court ruling getting us there.
