Keeping the government out of healthcare, indeed

I know that expecting intellectual consistency and honesty with Congressional Republicans is, I don't know, absurd, but let me get this straight: Republicans' opposition to the Affordable Care Act is based largely on their opposition to the federal government having anything to do with what should be personal decisions regarding health insurance (and on their belief that health care is not a "right"). And yet, they are sponsoring a bill to raise taxes on private insurance plans that cover abortions.

"This House is more pro-life than it's ever been," said Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa) yesterday.

Anyone who thought that the Tea Party Republicans are not all about the Kultur Wars is deluded.
