Setting Biden Straight on Obamacare's Anti-Conscience Mandate

Posted By Sarah Torre On March 3, 2012 @ 1:52 pm In Featured,Obamacare | Comments Disabled

Vice President Biden didn’t get the story quite straight.

As the Obama Administration reels from the backlash for Obamacare’s anti-conscience mandate that forces religious employers to provide coverage and pay for abortion-inducing drugs, Biden yesterday set out to convince America [1] that the Administration has a “new” version of the mandate that respects religion. The only problem is, the version is neither new nor respectful of religious liberty [2].

To set the record straight, we’ve put together a point-counterpoint response to the Vice President’s remarks. Simply put, the federal government should not be meddling with religious freedom, and the American people need to know the truth about Obamacare’s liberty-trampling dictates.
