As LifeNews points out, Franciscan warned of this outcome in September, while the Obama administration contemplated how to structure the religious exemption to the contraception/sterilization mandate. Dozens of Catholic colleges and universities insisted that they would not comply with a government mandate to provide products and services that violate religious doctrine. As a result, in just this one case, hundreds if not thousands of students will have to get their coverage from the government, subsidized by taxpayers, unless they can get coverage from Mom & Dad.
The cost issue shows that the problem won’t end with the religious exemption. Franciscan is a relatively small school, one that cannot self-insure and save costs through managing their own premiums. Many small businesses will have the same problems meeting the new coverage mandates even apart from contraception and sterilization, making it easier to pay the penalties for not providing the insurance and throwing employees onto public subsidies instead. That will cause an explosion in the overall cost of ObamaCare, and a much higher burden for taxpayers.
Remember, folks - THIS IS THEIR ACTUAL GOAL - to make people into slaves, dependent on the government for their very lives. Because once you enslave a population, you don't have to worry about silly things like elections.
