AZ, you’ll have to be more specific on exactly what views you’re referring to. Also, it appears you are not distinguishing between the personal/religious views held by a religiously devout politician as he shares those views with people of his faith in order to identify with them to garner support, and views that the politician runs on as policy. Regardless, mandating that employer insurance must cover $5 contraceptives is not such a major policy issue that it justifies voting for all the radically terrible ideas that the increasingly left-leaning Democrats are pushing, for most people. And besides, the Executive branch’s responsibilities do not include legislation, despite Mr. Obama’s corruption of checks and balances that got us to where we are today.August 3, 2018 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm #1568895
Insurance shouldn’t cover any predictable medical costs of any kind.August 3, 2018 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #1569033
Reply to akuperma: The Democrats of the pre-Civil War 19th Century were the party of slavery and slave holders. Yes, some of them wanted to annex Mexico, but their plan was to have Mexico admitted as a slave state (or states), so that they could expand their plantations. What that has to do with the current issue of border control is a mystery to me – and probably you as well.August 4, 2018 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #1569055
Curious, Pence has spoken at meetings to these xtian pacs. He has offered his opinion that contraceptives should be illegal. I do the fact checking before I post. Unfortunately this is a site that doesn’t permit links. I would suggest that you use google, it’s not difficult to find quotes and transcripts of his speeches to these groups. As I mentioned earlier I won’t respond to your straw men, again, you appear to have difficulty responding directly to comments.August 4, 2018 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #1569089
AZ, you can keep labeling my facts “straw men” if it helps you sleep at night, but that won’t change them. You can’t take the religious values a very devout Xtian man like Pence shares in an address to a solely Xtian group in an effort to relate to those voters on their religious similarity, and conflate that with an election platform. It’s like saying Schumer’s speech to AIPAC in which he says the Torah says Jews own the land of Israel means that he wants to enact Jewish Torah law as the law of the land in the USA – that’s completely absurd and we both know it’s not true and that he’s just pandering to his base, as all politicians are wont to do.
The fact of the matter is that a VP doesn’t dictate policy or legislate, so your point is completely irrelevant. If you want to get into absurd things politicians say in speeches, I suggest you listen to Hillary’s campaign speeches in which she asserted at the 2015 Women of the World summit that, (and I quote) “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” So I ask you, does she deny the freedom of religion protections in the Constitution? I assume not. I assume it’s reckless pandering to her base. Nonetheless, Democrat policies are backward and stupid with destructive ends, and I would never vote for one. Anyone who lists gov’t subsidized contraceptives as a primary reason to vote for the left needs to reassess their priorities.
