Stop the HHS Mandate

Nov 13th 2012 new

A short while ago, I made this post on Catholic Advocates Website.

I encourage you to do the same. Also, write your congressman and senators.

Thank You!

To whom it may concern:

AS you know the HHS Mandate is forcing Catholic Institutions to provide abortion coverage as well as sexual contraceptive medications in their health insurance plans.

I am suggesting that you contact members of congress and the senate to give Mr. Obama the tax hike on the 2% in exchange for a wavier of the HHS Mandate. Religious Freedom is far more important. After all, Jesus said "Give to Caersars what is Caesar's and to God what is Gods!".

Mr. Obama would have to give something up and risk getting criticized by his base.

Mr. Obama needs to learn that he can not receive and eat his cake at the same time.

What do you think?

I wrote Mitch McConnell an email on this subject

What is the Catholic Advocates Website and what it is it used for. Do you have a link for it?

Interesting idea....I don't think they will do it because it is mostly a political sham to make the liberal socialist party look good but it wouildn't help the economy....it would only cause those people to cut jobs to make up for the hikes....or so they say. I'd be open to finding out because taxes can always be lowered again after they destroy the economy if that is what happens....but as you say our religious freedom is vital....still I don't think they would do it. Perhaps you and others should start a petition. We've been talking a lot about that site where if they get 25,000 signatures the pres. has to acknowledge the petition.

Good Idea!

Nov 13th 2012 new

Sounds good to me.

But I'm willing to bet in his heart of hearts Mitch McConnell cares one million times more about keeping taxes low for rich people than he does about the HHS Mandate.

.

BTW, today's income tax rates (which have not gone up since Obama took office) are substantially lower than they were in the 50s and 60s - when the US economy was the envy of the world

It's not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison, but this is strong proof that higher taxes won't kill us. Given the structural budget deficit, we must raise taxes.

So good deal as far as I'm concerned.

Excuse me? Yes, give the govt. MORE money to waste and have their parties and spend that will solve the problems? No, they need to cut spending and waste....the govt. doesn't have the right to steal people's money to spend it on what they think is OK like abortions. Envy is one of the ten deadly sins....people have a right to their money. However, if you want to give yours away, I'm in need....feel free to send it to me! By the way, I don't buy that we are taxed less then they were in the 50s and 60s...they made less money in those days and weren't dealing with inflation as we are now....duh!

Cathy - what is too low? Name the rate where even you think it is too high. Is it 30%, 40%, 50%, how about take it all. How about make it 100% over a certain amount. Then you run for office and tell us all what that amount should be. Then you take all the money and hand it to others as you see fit.

God asks for 10% - why do governments deserve more?

I often hear the justification for them taking more money the Bible verse about "Giving onto Caesar what is Caesars". I remember they were trying to trap Jesus when he answered that. I just don't think that is what he meant...that what is Caesars should be unlimited. I also emphasize that one of the ten deadly sins is envy. How comes I know this, and I'm not rich!

in this segment, the discussion pointed out that many of the mandates will take effect after the election:
