The Catholic owners of a Colorado-based business won an injunction recently against implementing an ObamaCare mandate -- only to be denied a proclamation now from the Denver City Council.
Hercules Industries, a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning manufacturer which employs 300 workers and has been in business in the Mile-High City for 50 years, was to be honored with a Good Citizenship Award." The laurel was in recognition of contributions to the community, including the historic restoration of company headquarters and, ironically, its generous employee health care coverage.
But the award was taken away after the owners of Hercules Industries, the Newland family, won the court injunction which said that they did not have to start providing employees with coverage that included abortion-inducing drugs, contraception and sterilization. As with several companies and colleges around the nation, the family that runs Hercules claimed that the mandates force them to violate their own religious beliefs.
Denver city councilwoman-at-large Robin Kniech originally motioned for the proclamation before taking it away, citing a heated election season.

Ms. Kniech can play the sour grapes game all she wants. The fact the Newlands won a major victory over the evil obamacare steamroller stands.
Now the residents of Denver know who their enemies are.
Robin Kniech, scumbag in action, proving yet again that liberals really are collectivist monsters that will indeed throw you into a concentration camp as absolutely soon as they are able to do so without getting their hands dirty.
I read recently that several medical staffing agencies have ceased providing insurance and instead are giving employees a $900 per month stipend with which to purchase their own insurance. Sounds like a good plan all around. I hope it catches on.
When the entire Catholic population starts voting Republican, this nonsense will come to an end.
Fixed it for you.
Sounds like the city council doesn’t really know what a Good Citizenship Award.” is all about. Apparently, they aren’t good citizens, how could they know?
