Hi everyone –
I would like to talk to you about a new mandate sent out by HHS. On January 20th of 2011, HHS secretary Kathleen Sebilius proclaimed a mandate that all employers would have to provide contraceptive protection and provide “Ella”, the early abortion pill, at little or no cost to all of its employees. This mandate would be in effect regardless of the employer, even Christian-based employers such as churches and hospitals.
Several issues arise about the abuse of power coming from the Obama Administration. One of those issues being the government overstepping its constitutional authority of separating church from state by dictating to the church what practices it must comply with. A second issue is the favoritism the Administration shows. In Obama’s Health Care Bill, it is mandatory to purchase health care. However, it gives waivers to Muslims from participating due to religious beliefs and freedoms, yet the HHS mandate requires Christian organizations to comply even though this goes against their religious beliefs and freedoms.
In addition, HHS is an administrative agency which is bypassing Congress’ authority to debate this issue in creating mandates. The balance of power in our three branches of government is extremely uneven and needs to be corrected and our Constitution needs to be followed. This is why we need new, strong leadership in Congress. Please vote Ted Yoho, District 3 Republican candidate. Thank you.
