1. Why are we raising taxes on anyone right now? Raising rates now as opposed to a year from now will not change the long-term budget situation and it may hurt the recovery.
2. Why shouldn't there be co-pays on birth control? Don't tell me it's a low-income issue. If it's a low-income issue you subsidize low-income care or restrict the policy to Medicaid. Don't tell me it's a mean employer issue either. If it's a mean employer issue you mandate coverage.
