    The RNC has provided elective abortion insurance benefits for their employees since about 94 I think.

    Pretty cool :)

    Okay. I read it. It looks like whoever signed the contract did not scrutinize the coverage close enough and no one else caught it. Looks like they're correcting the situation now. Other than bull shit partisan politics, why is this an issue?

    Just total irony and something about those who live in glass houses not throwing stones comes to mind.

    In the face of the Republicans making an issue of Federal dollars going to abortion inside the health care legislation it becomes an issue of hypocrisy. The fact that they are correcting the oversight is to their credit. But they should be embarrassed at letting something this significant slip through.

    :eusa_eh: Maybe you misunderstood what I garnered from the article in my post. If it was done purposely then I would agree with you, if accidentally (which appears to be the case) then I can only assume you are being partisan and grasping at straws.

    Of course it's an embarrassment. I'd be embarrassed also, that was pretty damn stupid to let that one slip by.
