    ^The “government”, like righty-tighty chickenhawks said a long time ago you couldn’t get away with that. How about we make those “religions” pay property taxes on everything but their actual worship facilities and take away their income tax exemptions if they get any of their funds from commerce?

    You get to say its your religious right as a corporation to not support birth control? Then its my right to execute corporations who commit murder with shoddy cars or environmental disasters. Corporations have no personhood unless you can jail and execute them.

    This is why the Government has no business in healthcare.

    Ask the older members of your extended family that have used Medicare what they think about using that communist instrument.

    The government is not providing healthcare, only regulating the insurance industry.

    Agreed, Basqueian.
    Ever since “Citizen’s United” decreed that corporations were people it has been my own stance that if this is true, a corporation should be subject to arrest and jail, in the form of being unable to do business at all for a decreed period of time, for just the types of reasons you list as well as others that come to mind. Enron seemed to have suffered the Death Penalty, but the many financial institutions that brought us down in 206 through 2009 didn’t even get house arrest and our bipartisan cannibalistic legislators have gutted the rules and regs meant to prevent these institutions from repeating their mistakes.
    If religious institutions are going to demand that women give birth to every child then I join those who demand that religious institutions pay taxes and that those taxes go to help women afford to stay home and take care of those children they are forced to have so the children won’t grow up uneducated and unsupervised in a society that only cares about them before they leave the womb.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Didn’t the Supreme Court declare that Corporations have the same “free speech” rights as people a few years ago, enabling them to lavish unlimited money towards election campaigns? Then they should be held to all the laws people are subjected to. They can’t have it both ways, when it suits them.

    This is why employers should not be the main purveyor of health insurance. They don’t want that burden anyway.

    @If my words offend you - you don't have the open mind you claim to have

    “Yawn… the shakedown of business continues.”

    Yawn…. Your comment is generic and pointless.

    Nothing like government continuing to forcibly expand Statist Capitalism on the US economy. It is going to drive the economy right over a cliff.

    The government should pressure Hobby Lobby to the point of closure. They have no right to their own business. They didn’t build their company, the government and employees did. The government can take care of the 13,000 unemployed with health care, food and housing programs. The government should just take over the entire business and run it. That would show those capitalist block heads. The selfish SOBs.

    “and take away their income tax exemptions if they get any of their funds from commerce?”

    They fall into the classification of 501c3 and are required to pay taxes on any income from commerce.

    How about property tax?

    @Adrian Snare

    Adrian, I was purposefully, sarcastically showing how ridiculous the liberal mind thinks. The government IS the problem, not the solution. There are those that work for a living and build wealth for the good of society and those who vote for a living, who covet what other people have and want to enforce their twisted view of “social justice” and high minded, iron fisted liberal moral code.

    “Ask the older members of your extended family that have used Medicare what they think about using that communist instrument.”

    It works quite well, although it requires a supplement to cover the deductibles and co-pays, and a separate premium for prescription drugs. Total cost for me is around $325 per month.

    However, my employer and I contributed a portion of my total income (about 2-3%) for 47 years into the program. Had that money been invested privately instead, it would have provided me with a monthly income of about $470.

    So yes, it works well for an insurance policy that has an effective cost to me of around $795 per month.
