I was amazed to see how easy it was for Mr. Obama to solve the conflict with the Catholic Church over the paid for birth control (abortion) measures. His compromise solution, that the insurance companies and not the church would pay for the costs, was a stroke of genius. How could the church object? And according to the New York Times Feb. 11, 2011 editorial: “Mr. Obama’s new rule on birth control coverage lets institutions affliated with a religion shift the cost of coverage to their insurance companies, but Mr. Obama assured Americans it would not result in other women, or the rest of the country, subsidizing that shift.” Wow, it will be a cost only the insurance companies will bear. He is a miracle worker. Now that he has established the precedent that companies can be forced to provide services for free, he should apply this new power to balancing the Federal $1.3 Trillion Budget deficit. All companies doing business with the government should be instructed to work for free until the budget is balanced. One miracle begets another.
