Apparently the Obama administration is working on another “fix” to the HHS mandate


CNN is reporting that Obama administration will propose a “fix” to the HHS Mandate today. According to the report, this “fix” would be for religious employers only.

Based on these early details, it looks like this “fix” is another phony accommodation. Private business owner rights will still be violated. Stay tuned for more…
