Obama allies, foes both unhappy with HHS mandate

Catholic World News - February 09, 2012

In a new background/analysis piece summarizing the state of the debate on the HHS mandate, Rachel Zoll of AP remarks that President Obama’s public stand has managed to infuriate both Catholic bishops and liberal secularists.

The announcement of the HHS mandate prompted a chorus of outrage from Catholic bishops and their supporters, Zoll duly reports. But when the White House hinted that some compromise might be considered to accommodate the Church, Obama’s usual allies on the left of the political spectrum were appalled. Zoll says that “even even the suggestion of a revision, no matter how limited, has infuriated Democrats the president hoped to please with the regulation.”
