Pelosi: Absolutely, I Agree With The Majority of My Fellow Catholics That The Catholic Church Itself Should Be Compelled to Pay for Birth Control and Abortions

She didn't actually say she was "standing with her fellow Catholics" this time, as she claimed last time -- but the rest of it is accurate enough.

By the way: cost of the birth control pill, per month: $9

Cost of the morning after pill: $20-30

This is about sparing workers those costs, huh?

And here's the world's most boring question: Will the Maine Twins defect from the GOP on the mandate?

I don't really think this is a question. Of course they will.

After Obama's "compromise"...

“It appears that changes have been made that provide women’s health services without compelling Catholic organizations in particular to violate the beliefs and tenets of their faith,” Snowe said.

Collins made a similar statement: “While I will carefully review the details of the president’s revised proposal, it appears to be a step in the right direction.”

Snowe, by the way, has been introducing contraception-coverage mandates for years -- with no exemption for religious organizations or conscience objectors.

So.

Not a hard one, huh?

By the way, in that case, absolutely, primary them out. At that point, if they can't even show up for an easy vote, what good are they? None.
