I’d like to know what New Hampshire Democrats think about this?
Under President Obama’s healthcare law, the HHS can levy $100 per employee, per day against institutions that won’t comply with the (contraceptive) mandate.
Therefore, religious employers with hundreds of employees could be fined millions of dollars each year. A 50-employee institution, for example, would face a penalty of $1,825,000 each year.
For people who like to spout about rights when it suits them, how do you comport with the idea of bankrupting religious groups out of existence so a scant few million people can “get health insurance.” (Your words not mine.)
And I’d really like to hear form Carol Shea-Porter, Ann Mclane Kuster, Maggie Hassan and Jackie Cilley. Would any of you, beholden to the abortion lobby as you are, and they to the mandate, stand up in defense of the religious conscience of the people you wish to represent in New Hampshire?
Or, as is more likely the case, will you defer to the General Government in DC and sit on your hands while it executes fiscal penalties that drive them out of existence? (Putting their employees out on the street to beg that same government for sustenance.)
