Republicans not seeking to block HHS contraceptive mandate?

Catholic World News - July 30, 2012

Although Republican political leaders have denounced President Obama for imposing a contraceptive mandate as part of his health-care reform, the Republican leadership has not taken action to overturn the regulation, Politico notes.

House Speaker John Boehner said that the contraceptive mandate “must not stand and will not stand.” But no vote to block the mandate has been scheduled in the House of Representatives, where Republicans hold a majority.

    Justin. The candidates the NOT the same. Obama enthuses over abortion because he doesn't want his girls "punished with a baby." Saying when life begins is "above his pay grade." His healthKare rationing will make the elderly the new unwanted. Hey, adult children don't want to be punished with sick parents or grandparents. At their age, the old "should take a pain pill". The government won't waste healthcare dollars on them. God is watching all of this, Justin. Get your butt out to vote on Nov. 6

    Unfortunately, not voting is actually a vote in favor of Obama. Please reconsider your decision, hold your nose, and vote for the other guy. It is the only way to get rid of Obama!

    It's no surprise to me at all, as it has become abundantly clear over the years that both Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same rusted and tarnished naturalist Enlightenment coin. Neither side believes in anything but "business as usual". I will not be voting, for what good is a democracy or the power of the vote if neither side believes in Truth?
