DWS: Hey, it’s government’s job to impose their values on people, or something

posted at 12:10 pm on February 17, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants people to know that she opposes the imposition of values onto others … when relationships are voluntary.  In an interview with Megyn Kelly at Fox caught by Doug Powers at the Boss Emeritus’ site, the DNC chair denounces employers who impose their values by, er, deciding whether or not to pay for contraception for their employees.  The DNC chair also denounces religious organizations who try to practice what they preach over the demand for subsidies from their employees — for products and services that are so readily available that the CDC shows that 99% of all reproductive-age women who wanted to avoid pregnancy had access to them, and where employees could look for better benefit packages by going to work somewhere else.

But in involuntary relationships — say, where government dictates its values to employers within the US through massive regulation?  Debbie Downer is totally down with that:

“The flip side of this is that religious institutions shouldn’t be imposing their values, necessarily, on their employees who don’t necessarily subscribe to those values.”

Well, here’s the solution to that: if you don’t subscribe to the doctrines of the religious organization for which you work, find another job.  Benefit packages are a competitive part of compensation, and those who don’t like the package at one employer can vote with their feet by working elsewhere.  Believe me, as a hiring manager for 15 years, those competitive practices do work, and businesses are constantly calculating their competitive position on all forms of compensation.  That’s the nature of voluntary, market-based associations like employment.

Even besides that point, going off onto a harangue about the evils of imposing one’s values while demanding compliance with a government mandate that forces religious organizations to subordinate their doctrine to the values of this President is about as good a demonstration of irony as one will see.

Where did this come from? Is there a huge group of catholic employed women complaining about their access to contraception or is this imagined by Øbama to stick it to the Catholic Church.
And if 99% of Americans have used contraception in their lifetime, then it mustn’t be too hard to get, or too expensive, eh? We are fighting this battle over 1%? That’s rich.

Democrats want to impose values by having taxpayers fund things they don’t believe in. Republicans want to stop the govt from doing so.

If you want contraception, get it. Get it by the gross. Get it and give it to everyone you want. Just don’t make me pay for it. Pretty simple really.

What else do you expect from this vile human being? She’s all for killing off babies and has fought for using federal funds to do so. To expect Debbie Wasserman Schultz to have any morals is as silly as expecting fidelity from Bill Clinton or sanity from Maxine Waters. In other words, you can’t expect an evil amoral shrew to understand why religious organizations are against her position.

Happy Nomad on February 17, 2012 at 12:25 PM

I thought DWS’ appointment to Dean of National Contraception Democrat National Committee Chair made Obama’s 2012 campaign strategy transparent: Women, women, women. Democrats need to improve on their numbers with women vis-a-vis 2010. They have completely lost white, working-class males; with minorities locked up, women is the path to victory.

We can’t let religion and that darn “conscience thing” get in the way of some good-ole demagoguery about women’s rights.

youknowit on February 17, 2012 at 12:25 PM

Libs actually believe this garbage and are unable to see the irony.

These poor folks are missing the freedom gene, an unrecognized disability. We should be harping about research and funding for the cure instead of discussing why John Doe, as part of her same insurance coverage pool, should pay for Sally Smith’s already easy and cheap access to contraception. Note that John Doe will have to go to confession to deal with the violation of his conscience.

BTW This is not a cue to discuss whether or not confession is really useful to the Catholic folks. That topic would be a tangent.

A parrot doesn’t have to be intelligent, it just spouts the lines and you give it a cracker. Liberals don’t really have to be intelligent, they just tell you so. Hillary Clinton took the BAR down in Arkansas because she failed to pass the one in DC. The claim is she is the smartest woman in the world, yeah she married the right guy.

As for Sarah, self made woman. Didn’t have to marry anyone to attain her status. Sometimes it’s just a matter of commons sense, leadership ability and honesty. The above two liberal women have none of those qualities. Besides it seems all the Mensa people currently in power are too busy looting the treasury and telling us how we just don’t understand the world of finance!

Yeah take in 2 trillion spend three trillion, we will reduce the debt by 5 trillion in 10 years, but the debt will go from 15 trillion to 25 at or more at our current rate of spending. They have graphs, charts and projections though, the stupid people just don’t understand. Well tell them to balance the budget, they say no, after all they are smart and you are a dumb dumb.

Africanus on February 17, 2012 at 12:36 PM

Yakko77 on February 17, 2012 at 12:39 PM

RYAN: Leaders are supposed to fix problems. We have a $99.4 trillion unfunded liability. Our government is making promises to Americans that it has no way of accounting for. And so you’re saying, yeah, we’re stabilizing it but we’re not fixing it in the long run. That means that we’re just going to keep lying to people. We’re going to keep all these empty promises going … You’re showing that you have no plan to get this debt under control. You’re saying we’ll stabilize it but then it’s just going to shoot back up. And so my argument is, that’s Europe. That is bringing us toward a European debt crisis.

GEITHNER: What our budget does is get our deficits down to a sustainable path over the budget window. Why do they take off again? Why do they do that?

RYAN: Because we got 10,000 people retiring every day, and healthcare costs going up…

GEITHNER: That’s right. We have millions of Americans retiring every day, and that will drive substantially the rate of growth of healthcare costs. You are right to say we’re not coming before you today to say we have a definitive solution to that long-term problem. What we do know is, we don’t like yours.

Secular Humanism is a very powerful religion. It is butting heads with the Catholics on purpose to prove that it’s stronger, and DWS is playing a cheerleader for it.

“The flip side of this is that religious institutions shouldn’t be imposing their values, necessarily, on their employees who don’t necessarily subscribe to those values.”

-Hello, new employee, we here at the Catholic Hospital value hard work and diligence to the assigned tasks.

“Hey man, you’re trampling on my rights. It’s break time, I’ll be back in an hour or two.”

Bishop on February 17, 2012 at 12:42 PM

The cost of contraception is only an issue when the woman has to pay for it, I gather. When someone else pays for it, it’s no longer an issue. I have no need for contraception, but maybe Congress could mandate some other “free” stuff that I could get in on.

SukieTawdry on February 17, 2012 at 12:44 PM

So Debbie wants to force Catholic churches to pay for abortions.

That’s it in a nutshell. Debbie wants to use the power of government to force Catholic churches to pay for abortions or face criminal and civil prosecution by government.

Repeat, repeat, repeat. People need to recognize that that is all the Obama Party is doing — using the power of government to force churches to pay for abortions.

Socialism must always be forced upon a people. For those who desire to be dependents of the State, the “force” used is handouts – the “carrot” is really the hammer. Don’t do what the State tells you to do, and we’ll take things away from you.

For those who don’t desire to be dependents of the State, the “force” is a mandate, a directive … an order.

There is always the use of force – only the instrument of force is variable.

The flip side is that religious institutions are guaranteed rights in the Constitution.

That would be that little part in the First Amendment which states that Congress shall not prohibit the free exercise of religion. Notwithstanding that ObamaCare forces citizens to buy a product.

Which this does Debbie. Have an 8 year old read it to you.

Debbie needs to start dressing according to her beliefs.

This means her and her boss need to start wearing the brown suits and swastikas arm bands right along with the hammer and sickle emblems.

Eventually, when they stop trying to hide it, they’ll also have to put the Chinese, Venezuelan, and Iranian flag emblems somewhere on their shirts next to the Che portrait.

These people will look like fruits with all the colors, but at least everyone will know where they’re coming from before they open their big socialist mouths.

Sounds like the standard liberal one-way-street view on “tolerance” and “imposing values” – tolerate the things that we believe in and approve of, and don’t try to impose your values and beliefs onto us… but don’t expect us to tolerate the things that you believe in or refrain from trying to force our beliefs down your throat.

“The flip side of this is that religious institutions shouldn’t be imposing their values, necessarily, on their employees who don’t necessarily subscribe to those values.”

thuja on February 17, 2012 at 12:59 PM

So, here’s the problem for Pro-Choice or whatever you want to call the group that is for women’s rights to abortion, birth control, etc….

The Conservative argument is that Obamacare and national health care control is taking away the right or “CHOICE” for not only religious groups, but other groups as well as individuals to make decisions about their health care and choices, which at this ten seconds is framed by the mandate for religious groups to provide contraceptives to their employees in spite of whether it is in direct contrast to their beliefs.

What, in the future state run health care model would prevent some future (or current) administration from mandating that no woman can have an abortion or use contraceptives?

When you turn the argument around it is still valid. One can segregate Pro-Life folks from “Pro-Choice” folks, in terms of the ability to make one’s own decision to abort or use contraceptives specifically, but in the end it is ALL about choices.

We are ALL Pro-Choice when it comes to our desire and ability to make our own decisions on our healthcare and well being. It is not about abortion or contraceptives. Those are a red herring and not the main problem.

The larger problem and where all of us have the chance to come together for at least one thing, is our ability to retain a CHOICE.

Obamacare and the future model of healthcare in America will take that away from you no matter which side of the abortion or contraceptive issue you are on.

Let me put it another way. If the government or administration or HHS has the ability to control what healthcare services you will receive today, and abortion and contraceptives are in there, what on God’s green earth makes anyone on the other side of this argument think that a future Conservative president or Congress would not hesitate to use that health care mandate to take away those choices?

That is the real problem for both sides.

I do not know why, but it still amazes me at how many people just give up their freedoms and liberty inch by inch because they’d rather not be bothered about it and prefer to watch TV.

I used to laugh about how far off a ledge Glenn Beck is, and he still is on the next global financial crisis; we will not be growing our own food and kitting our own clothes.

However, he is more than spot on; on DC assuming total control over you, your job and your life. He may have actually been off and it may happen faster than he thinks. If obama gets back in and with the gop continuing to go along, it is definitely possible for the US to catch England in 4 years in the government control/socialism department.

I feel so sorry for anyone under 40 that knew what the US used to be and will live thru what it will become if the US doesn’t change in 2012.

Personally, I’ll be going out early from cirrhosis of the liver as my only escape from this when it is determined for me that i am too costly to keep alive.

The real solution is to not impose it on anyone, both because it is wrong but also because people without religious affiliation have just as strong feelings about their convictions as do those with affiliations.

What third world leftist dictatorship did Whatsherface-Shrew grow up in? Oh, yeah, I forgot, the Dimbecile party.

Hey, Shrew, guess what? Our relationship with the gubmint is voluntary as in the gubmint gets its power from We The People and you’d know that if you would read and occasionally consult that document known as the US Constitution that you swore to uphold and defend.

But for the grace of your constituents who keep voluntarily voting stupidly, you would not be there to spew your idiocy into the lamestream.

The fact that the Dims chose her as their face and mouthpiece is all you need to know about them.

I do not know why, but it still amazes me at how many people just give up their freedoms and liberty inch by inch because they’d rather not be bothered about it and prefer to watch TV.

Hey Cougar, it is no longer inch by inch or even yard by yard. We who have an informed conscience are beginning the long march. Better be prepared to see yourself in shackles. That’s next years new fashion accessory. That and stripes.

I’m confused.

I have to buy my own condoms… nobody provides them to me for free by a government mandate… but this isn’t evidence that anyone is “forcing their ideas on me”.

But ask women to buy their own contraception themselves… and this is intolerable, unacceptable, and horrific to consider.

I’ve seen the pricing on the pill, it’s not much different from my condom purchase; so this isn’t price-driven. It must be something else.

Why is it that women’s contraception must be covered and they can’t pay for it themselves? What is it that liberals see that makes women somehow incapable of this responsibility?

Melodrama will get us nowhere. Does Obama and his crew have and push bad policy, absolutely; but furnace designs, really?

Wait and see, my friend, wait and see. Once life quality goes down sharply, the time will come to give the masses “the enemy within”. And the economy worsens and “the enemies within” multiply, there will be time for technical solutions. Between camps, furnaces, and mass shootings, maybe they’ll come with a novel approach.

This entire country would be a belly busting joke if it wasn’t so terribly sad and disgusting.

Really?

How many churches of this powerful religion exist? Humor me with specifics.

Sorta funny how M. Kelly just lets DWS talk w/out challenging her at all. The more she talks she’s very likely to say something really stupid.

You see, they believe that women and anyone not of european caucasion descent, needs to be propped up in order to be able to acheive equality in this country. One can only therefore conclude that they believe that white caucasian males are inherently superior to women and other races, such that there is a need for this propping up.

However, Republicans are the party of racism according to them.

Yes, the irony and lack of logical/critical thinking is truly mind boggling.

Democrats: Employers MUST to provide birth control.

Santy: I don’t believe in it and I don’t think the govt should PAY for birth control for anyone.

Only a fool or a liberal, but there I go repeating myself, can’t distinguish between the two.

DWS:

I think I do well without the government ruling over every aspect of my everyday life. Kindly take your regulations and stick it where the sun don’t shine.
