Today’s dumb Obama campaign demagoguery: The GOP wants employer permission slips for birth control

posted at 8:54 pm on March 1, 2012 by Allahpundit

A nice change of pace from last night’s Koch brothers campaign demogoguery. Today, in lieu of scaring leftists into reaching for their wallets with tales of the evil billionaire hiding under the bed, Team Hopenchange floats this Dan-Rather-worthy mock-up on its Tumblr page as a sign of what’s to come if the Blunt amendment ever passes:

If you can’t read the text, follow the Tumblr link and enlarge their image so that you can. When I first saw it today, I glanced at it and thought Team O was claiming that employees would need ad hoc permission from the boss in order to have their individual health coverage include contraception. That’s an irritating distortion: The Church’s objection isn’t that they want to pick and choose on a case-by-case basis which workers can have their birth control covered or not, it’s that they want to be able to drop birth control from their group plan entirely on conscience grounds. The Tumblr image makes it seem more like a matter of discrimination, in which the company plan does include contraception coverage but whether you’re allowed to participate or not depends entirely on the arbitrary whim of your boss.

But I’m mistaken. When you read the slip closely, you’ll see that it has … nothing to do with health insurance. What Obama’s campaign wants dimwits to believe is that the Blunt amendment would give America’s bosses the power to block their employees from buying contraception — as if suddenly pharmacists everywhere will demand a note from your company before they sell you the pill. Read the text for yourself. Even by the usual standards of hysterical liberal scaremongering over “women’s health,” it’s an instant classic. How dishonest is it? Michael Dougherty of Business Insider counts the ways:

Lie #1 The idea employers have creepy discussions with individual employees about their sex lives when discussing their health insurance compensation. This does not happen. New hires usually get a packet with their insurance information just like everywhere else.

Lie #2 That employers currently (or under any law) would be granting or revoking permission to even use birth control. This is just not true. Currently many schools and hospitals just refuse to pay for it because they believe it directly implicates them in a sinful act. But employees are absolutely free to follow their own conscience and do what they want with their wages.

Lie #3 That there will be more ongoing creepy discussions and that a person’s health insurance will be constantly changed and reviewed according to changeable moral standards. This is not the experience of anyone working at a religious hospital or school, nor would it be.

Lie #4 That these decisions even get this personal. These institutions typically write up an agreement with a health insurer–or they self-insure. It’s an impersonal contract, not an inquisition.

Lie #5 Implicitly this makes it seem like it is also about women and their most common birth-control choices. It doesn’t mention sterilization or “morning-after” drugs that are part of the mandate. And it doesn’t mention most health-policies that don’t cover birth control also don’t cover elective-vasectomies for men.

If a transvaginal ultrasound can constitute “rape,” I suppose a debate about health coverage can turn on whether people will need hall passes from their CEO in order to buy Trojans. Via Politico, here’s Biden today admitting that the first iteration of their new contraception mandate was “screwed up” but that the phony new “compromise” has made things all better. Well, in light of that Tumblr page, obviously.

OBAMCARE 2020

This is what Progressives would like to have us all have to deal with after full implementation of ObamaCare.

Reports indicate the White House and the HHS Secretary will begin implementation of the new “Healthy Choices Adviser” in high risk groups beginning next month. The new device is too be implanted inside the mouth to detect caloric intake and will work with a second implanted device in the stomach that has the ability to supply a small electric shock to the stomach area to motivate the user to cease consumption of food items when a caloric limit (preset) has been reached.

The Administration believes starting this in those identified as “Obese” will help to reduce hospitalization costs and will provide the opportunity to possibly roll the Health device out to a wider population as testing continues. The Administration also will work with the HHS Secretary to set the definition for those to be classified as “Obese” and eligible for implantation.

This is just a sample of what they would really like to do FOR us.

Good Lord but you have to realize we are dealing with liberals here – they aren’t the brightest bulbs on the tree.

To prove my point – a conversation I had with my very liberal cube mate today. We were talking about another co-worker going to Hawaii.

Question #1
“Do they drive on the same side of the road as we do here”
My answer
“Um yes they are part of the US”

Question #2
“Do they use the US dollar as their main currency or something else”
My Answer
“You do realize that Hawaii is a state right? You know just like Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, etc” She asked again. I rolled my eyes and went back to work.

gophergirl on March 1, 2012 at 9:29 PM

Obama knows that the mainstream news media will simply run a small clip of him making this inane and baseless statement and people who don’t have the time to dig deeper accept it at face value. Maybe they don’t even pay attention to what he’s actually saying. Maybe they just catch a soundbite and think he sounds sincere, so they assume he’s trying to do the right thing. I think Obama banks on that every single day and it seems to pay off. It’s either that or the 50% that approve of him are parasites whose kids we’re feeding.

Another example of ‘when you got nuthin’, baffle ‘em with bullshit’.

Perhaps for them, birth control should be MANDATORY.

The Lyin kING may have an idea here, he as always, identifies the problem, then advocates the wrong solution!

The solution is for any not able or willing to pay for their own contraception, spay or neuter!

For your petes sake spay or neuter your pete if he can’t or won’t pay!
Bob Barker would certainly agree if your Pete shows up for free stuff hand it over after a spay or neuter job ONLY!

No, not at you, AP. It’s necessary for someone to point it out. How to strike the right balance between being aware of its falsity, and the right-wing blogosphere spending day after day talking about everything Team Obama throws out there, is the question.

They can keep this up indefinitely. As long as it works, they’re never going to stop. We have to figure out how to change the agenda and the debate — and it won’t be by parsing their themes.

I do think their mendacious tactics are evidence of the pressure they’re feeling over this issue.

The whole question of employers and birth control would be obviated by repealing Obamacare anyway. One simple policy decision would make all this go away.

Thanks for the encouragement and support.

I realize that the leftists can’t face the facts, so all they can do is resort to Alinsky tactics. But we’ve come to know those tactics so well over the last 4 years that they don’t really work anymore.

The fact remains that the only “documents” Obama has “released” are three electronic “documents” that are ALL forgories:
1) Short form Certification of Live Birth
2) Long form Certificate of Live Birth
3) Selective Service Registration

There are two distinct issues related to Obama’s eligibility:
1) Is the “Obama birth narrative” 100% true?
2) If yes, does the “Obama birth narrative” meet the Founder’s definition of “natural born citizen”?

I think the answer to both quesitons is No.

I don’t know the truth about the “Obama birth narrative”, but I do know that he has never released a certified document directly from a certificate authority, and the electronic “documents” that he has released all show multiple signs of forgery.

ITguy on March 1, 2012 at 9:56 PM

ITguy, I’m with you 100%. Just the fact that he fought releasing his BC for so long is cause enough for a Congressional investigation, imo.

I’m so fed up with Obama doing whatever he wants as if he can. And just the fact that he has the balls to do it seems to be enough. He gets away with it. No one seems to know that our Constitution provides controls to address the branches of gov’t overstepping their bounds.

The bigger problem is the failure on the part of those responsible to act. Congress is charged with oversight of the Executive branch. They have failed to respond to the voice of the American public with a Congressional investigation as to why Obama’s entire past remains a mystery. It’s so long overdue, it’s ridiculous!

Impeachment is for those who are eligible to hold the office.

That means that everything from Obamcare to Surpreme Court nominatinos are null and void.

Why stop there given the left’s fixation on contraception. I say put the pictures of leading Democrats on condoms and let people like Sandra Fluke collect them like baseball cards. Shoot, the one with Nancy Pelosi’s face may even be the first time in history that the condom packaging is more effective birth control than the contents.

The DNC has decided that women are so stupid and gullible they will buy into the lie that the GOP wants to control their individual choices on contraception and that birth control is a civil right and must be paid for by the rest of us. Just how right are they?

This is without a doubt the most incompetent and corrupt administration in our history. With the artificial inflating of our economy that will make the crash that much more diabolical, Iran closer to destroying Israel, Obama constantly being a laughingstock on the world stage and this deliberate attack on religion and what is in the news…free contraceptives. UN-FREAKING BELIEVABLE.This band of fools might be totally incompetent, but they beat the Clintons which until then was the most corrupt administration in history. Obama will not go easily and knowing how to manipulate the ignorance of the American people is all he has. Add the republican leadership is led by cowards and life as we know it may soon be a fading memory. Racism and class warfare is all he has, but it is all the demonrats have ever had. Deja Vu.

I like Instapundit’s response:

The big lie behind all this is that somehow allowing some employers not to pay for this kind of coverage amounts to a “contraception ban.”

Meanwhile, I think we should require every employer to buy every employee a gun. Otherwise, you’re being denied the right to bear arms.

The only person at HotAir (that I know of) who has written a post on this has been Anita MonCrief in the Green Room

Update: Ed Morrissey has weighed in… I may not agree with his perspective on this issue, but I respect him for at least acknowledging the press conference and the conclusions of Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse:

Arpaio: Obama birth certificate is a fraud
