From National Review Online, By Kathryn Jean Lopez, July 27, 2012 – At his weekly press briefing on Thursday, John Boehner was asked about the Department of Health and Human Services contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drug mandate that goes into effect August 1. “We’re continuing to work with those groups around the country who believe that their religious liberties are being infringed to try to come to a resolution of this issue,” he said. “Resolving these issues can sometimes best be done other than through legislative avenues. So we’re continuing to work with them on the best way forward.”
What does that mean? Bearing in mind that he’s been concerned about abortion and conscience rights since before the president’s health-care plan was even on paper, I think it means exactly what he said.
