Boehner Goes on the Attack Against Contraception Policy
John Boehner’s keen instincts have compelled him to zero in on the highly charged — and politically advantageous — dispute about religious organizations and contraception coverage that’s currently reaching the boiling point on Capitol Hill. On Wednesday, the House speaker made a special speech devoted to the topic on the floor of Congress. Talking Points Memo posted the video below of Boehner busily attaching himself to the cause that day.
“If the president does not reverse the Department’s attack on religious freedom, then the Congress, acting on behalf of the American people and the Constitution we are sworn to uphold and defend, must,” Boehner said. “This attack by the federal government on religious freedom in our country cannot stand, and will not stand.”
