Headline of the day

Check this one out:

Most of Obama's "Controversial" Birth Control Rule Was Law During Bush Years

Here's an excerpt:

"In December 2000, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that companies that provided prescription drugs to their employees but didn't provide birth control were in violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prevents discrimination on the basis of sex. That opinion, which the George W. Bush administration did nothing to alter or withdraw when it took office the next month, is still in effect today—and because it relies on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, it applies to all employers with 15 or more employees. Employers that don't offer prescription coverage or don't offer insurance at all are exempt, because they treat men and women equally—but under the EEOC's interpretation of the law, you can't offer other preventative care coverage without offering birth control coverage, too."

And here's where I say: Good grief!!

    It is just another excuse to jump on the "blame Obama" band wagon.

    I seem to be getting used to it...even though "nothing stays the same" they this case...some things will never change!
