Collins, Snowe call revised Obama birth control rule a good move
The Portland Press Herald ^ | February 13, 2012 | Jonathan Riskind

The move by President Obama on Friday to alter his rule requiring birth-control coverage, shifting the mandate from some religious-based employers directly to insurance plans, hasn’t satisfied the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and some other critics. But Obama’s revised rule appears to have won over Republican Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine. Both had called for changes to the original rule despite their support in the past for a bill with a similar objective.

Collins is RC, Snowe is “Orthodox”, in name anyway.

It is still unconstitutional and it is still socialism.

Of course they would. Effing RINOs. With Senators like these, who needs a Constitution.

It's a good move if you support Obama's "fundamental change" to America where he is taking apart and destroying the constitution.

His rediculous shell game of a "compromise" is apparant to anyone with a centilla of reasoning power and not so hooked on the handouts and doles that they don't care. Nothing changed...he simply tried to divert attention. but the Catholic leadership sees it, the GOP stalwarts see it, the American people see it, and even some dems are so uncomfortable with it (they are realizing that they too are frogs in the increasingly hot water in the pot) .

This man is a domestic enemy to the constitution. In order to protect the constitution we simply must turn this man and his administration out before he completely takes it apart and renders it null by his executive fiats, and the acts that the complicit congress have passed to support him.

God grant that we may do so this November.

This is “a good move” in the manner of the parable of the deceitful manager...

0bama is using a deceitful process in order to further his power in the world.

Free stuff grows on trees in the northeast woods. Obama’s original plan was “deeply flawed” but this is a good move in the “right direction”. sheesh.

I understand that we are not going to get the most conservative people in the Senate in Maine. However, why can’t these two just shut up. I mean do they have to praise Obama every chance they get?

Of course the two RINO sister Senators must praise the Marxist Donkey, Zer0. This is what RINOs do to appear “bipartisan” and “reaching out”. Ecch!

Well when are they going to be “bipartisan” and speak up for the Republicans. I never hear them lifting up the Republicans. It is always praise for the Democrats and especially Obama.

One word — NEVER. RINOs only play the “bipartisan” game one way: praise the Donkeys. When it comes to praising Republicans, see McCain, John S. (aka: “Maverick” McCain).

Eugenics.,is a basic tenet of socialism which includes the whole range of the “isms”. The new religions created by Marx, Lennin, and Fascists that mandates its followers practice population control, through abortion or sterilization and of course “mercy killing”

Somebondy in Maine ought to tell those two twits that this is what Obama and his demo-com supporters is about...
