No more Texas governors for president

“Next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be president of the United States, please pay attention.” - Molly Ivins

Harvard law professor Elizabeth Warren, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, appeared on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show to discuss the current battle over insurance plans that cover contraception.

“Lets just start with what the statute says,” Warren said. “The statute says that in effect any employer or any insurance company can decide that it has a personal moral objection to providing any kind of health care coverage for anyone and therefore they’re not going to do it. So, if your employer says, ‘You know, I don’t like that vaccine thing, I’m going to have an insurance policy that doesn’t cover it for your children’… that’s just too bad you’re out there on your own now.”

She added that the bill allows employers and insurance companies to “design” the health insurance system.

“This is just a cold political calculation,” Warren continued. That they can appeal to the employers and insurance companies, who might not want to spend money, and at the same time try to stir up some kind of misinformation among people of good faith by calling this an attack on religion. I think this is why people really hate politics.”
