Contraceptive mandate seen detrimental to US economy

Pursuing the argument against the HHS contraceptive mandate from a different direction, Edward Morrissey explains in the Fiscal Times that the policy will harm the US economy, by imposing new costs...

The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

Not many statistics in the Financial Times article.

Basically, it builds on a pyramid of "worst case scenarios," most of which will never take place.

Case in point: It is in the interest of government to see businesses remain solvent. The idea that they would issue gigantic penalties is ridiculous.

The way I see it is this: they approved the mandate because of their feminist supporters, and because, even if they stood on their heads and whistled "Dixie" the bishops would find some obscure arcane reason to criticize them.

Most politicians are that way--if you are for their opponents no matter how much they try to win you over, eventually they'll write you off.

But they've won the feminists' support on this one...so what wouldn't hurt the economy? Probably a "penalty" of $80 a year for every woman of childbearing age.....small potatoes.....enough for government to buy the birth control for these women if they wanted it. A slap on the wrist.

They will never let companies or an economy collapse over this overblown, overheated stalemate.
