    As If It Makes It OK?

    There is no question the Insurance exchange moving successfully through the Senate was bad, and frankly capitulating to big brother Fed.  But some of the participants in its passing, including State Senator Mark Jansen might think THIS makes it OK:
    Sec. 3407c. (1) A qualified health plan offered through a state exchange pursuant to the patient protection and affordable care act, Public Law 111-148, and the health care and education reconciliation act of 2010, Public Law 111-152, shall not provide coverage for elective abortion. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit an individual, organization, or employer participating in a qualified health plan offered through a state exchange from purchasing optional supplemental coverage for elective abortion outside of the exchange as provided in subsection (2).

    Read the rest. Its as if its thrown in there to appease conscience conservatives.  Of course we don't wish to see tax dollars spent on abortion. We don't want to see abortions frankly.

    However, every time a bill is crafted to capitulate with the left and its great society plans, it seems there has to be riders and subsequent action to (hopefully) silence dissent from the right.

    I believe it may be best to take the ink out of all of their writing utensils for a couple years.

    . . . or at least a clarification, is in order here.

    Senator Schuitmaker voted against both SB 693 (which creates the exchanges) and against HB 5014 (which includes a Senate-introduced appropriation to fund said exchanges).

    SB 693 may die in the House.  (The legislators that I spoke with on Wednesday are all firmly opposed to it.)  And if it does, as I think it will, then all of this is a moot argument.

    However, there should still be severe consequences for the "republican" state senators who voted "yea" on SB 693.
