Posted on 08/03/2012 8:04:02 AM PDT by tsowellfan
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) again would not say on Thursday whether the Republican-controlled House of Representatives he leads would provide the Obama administration with money to implement a regulation that Boehner himself has called an "attack on religious freedom."
The regulation, which took effect on Wednesday, requires health-care plans to provide coverage, without cost-sharing, for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.
The Catholic Church has condemned the regulation as an "unjust and illegal mandate" that would violate the First Amendment right to free exercise of religion for Catholic workers, business owners and institutions by forcing them to buy and/or provide health care plans that violate the teachings of the Catholic faith...

Boner has to go - Bachmann for Speaker in 2013.
Yes, we demand a stupid and futile gesture!
“Repeal John Boehner as Speaker” needs to be a required campaign promise of any conservative running for Congress in 2012.
More than 40 Catholic institution and business owners have filed suit against the HHS regulation, arguing it violates the First Amendment. American Orthodox bishops, Jewish, and Protestant leaders have also criticized the regulation.
See, a federal court issued an injunction to stop implementation of the CA Constitutional amendment, passed by the legislature and the people, stating that marriage is between a man and a women.
Another Court hearing this bold faced assault on religious freedom, issued on the whim of a single cabinet secretary, totally outside the legislative process, will do nothing.
Please replace this spineless jellyfish with Michelle Bachmann.
Boehner is still caught. Reid has refused to even permit budget hearings in the senate for FOUR YEARS NOW, demanding that the House must pass continuing resolutions (at the same rate as the last bloated Bush budget), or it will be “their fault” if the government is shut down.
And Reid knows that if the Republicans do shut down the government, the MSM will launch a gigantic blitzkrieg attack on them for doing it, now just before the election.
The bottom line is that if Boehner waits until the election, it is likely that the Republicans will control both the House and the Senate, and then they can nuke a huge amount of the government.
But until then, he is stalemated.
Can anyone answer my questions? Does anyone have any ideas on what we can do??????
Yeah, I do.
Channel George Washington? Not a bad idea really.
Boehner and O must have had a REALLY good time on that golf course...
Town Hall's and calls to the local offices are all I know to do, anymore...since no one in DC really gives a flip what I think =(
Another reason to get somebody else to replace him. If the man's caught between a rock and a hard place and because of that is forced to put politics ahead of the nation HE NEEDS TO GO.
BWAHAHAHHA...*pant, wheeze* (breath) HAhahahahha (holds sides). I don’t care who you are, that’s some funny stuff right there!
Spineless cry-baby, waiting for the pounce. He’s ‘reached across the aisle’ EVERY SINGLE TIME he’s had the upper hand. He’s a Chamberlain, and should be booted out ASAP.
” Boner has to go - Bachmann for Speaker in 2013.”
Boehner: “ Let me cry on this for a while”
Just so I am crystal clear on this...
“This” is the GOP that’s going to rein in Romney when he goes full lib? “This” is the GOP that refused to defend against the enemy. What is the likelyhood that they will tell the leader of their party “NO”?
I’d also like to point out something else. All the Freepers who claim that we must abandon our principles to elect Mitt Romney...THIS is what you get when you abandon principle. So not one of you ABO types should bitch. “THIS” is what you want. Bohner and the rest abandoned theirs and here in naked glory is the result.
So tell me again why abandoning ours is for the ‘good’ of the country. You can’t have it both ways folks.
