Then that article is wrong. Dreaded Anomaly Send a noteboard - 11/02/2012 01:43:40 AM
See the WaPo article below.

And here’s how it works after the compromise: “Our policy is saying that the Catholic hospital doesn’t want to cover contraceptives, and they don’t include that in their policy. It also says that Aetna needs to provide contraceptive services for free to workers in the plan. Aetna sets the premium, but it cannot be higher than it would have been without birth control. The premium does not include contraception.”

And, in the end, that leaves Aetna with the bill. “There is a sort of bank account,” says the official, “and Aetna is sucking it up.”

Also, kudos for linking to a source, and a fairly non-partisan one as well. - 09/02/2012 01:33:07 PM 385 Views
I am a non-partisan guy, so I only use unbiased sources! *NM* - 09/02/2012 04:02:50 PM 267 Views
Is there really such a thing? *NM* - 09/02/2012 04:11:30 PM 195 Views
You lost all credibility in the first line of your post. - 09/02/2012 04:49:23 PM 332 Views
The subject line didn't help. *NM* - 09/02/2012 06:04:11 PM 210 Views
But it added some flair to the discussion! *NM* - 09/02/2012 07:46:47 PM 188 Views
You actually think any of us has 'credibility' anymore in regards to neutrality? *NM* - 09/02/2012 06:46:13 PM 190 Views
