Defintion of Blunt-Rubio Posed to Romney: It Would Allow Employers to Ban Birth Control
Update: Romney Supports Blunt, Campaign Spox Says; Question Was Confusing

Watch the video, see how this bill is "defined" for Romeny.

It's confusing, but the definition this genius settles on, in posing the question, is that it "allows employers to ban providing female contraception" based on religious scruples.

That sounds like a bill that would permit employers to, um, "ban providing female contraception," whatever that means, but it sounds like an employer gets to include "We will fire you if we find out you're using birth control."

So, 24 hour rule, huh? The definition did not mention this was about insurance, or about the HHS Mandate that Romney has specifically opposed.

I'll wait to see what Romney says. Sounds to me he didn't know what he was being asked about, and the questioner asked him he'd be in favor of employers "banning providing female contraception."


Update: Romney supports Blunt.

Yeah, if you've listened to the debates, one of the areas in which Romney has sounded particularly conservative and on Team Red was in discussing this very thing, and talking up his resistance to such attempts to bigfoot religious conscience by the state.

It really made no sense that he was reversing himself on a very defensible, popular, and clearly-expressed position.
