notwithstanding the foregoing

in any given set, i will like the most ridiculous or surreal example. i like bright colors and shiny things. i do off-broadway theater, and think about it often. also slightly obsessed with television, music, feminism, knitting, politics. and hello kitty.

Blunt’s proposal doesn’t just apply to religious employers and birth control. Instead, it would allow any insurer or employer, religiously affiliated or otherwise, to opt out of providing any health care services required by federal law—everything from maternity care to screening for diabetes. Employers wouldn’t have to cite religious reasons for their decision; they could just say the treatment goes against their moral convictions. That exception could include almost anything—an employer could theoretically claim a “moral objection” to the cost of providing a given benefit.

I can’t believe the health insurance industry would stand for each company picking and choosing coverage elements a la carte; it would greatly increase their administrative costs.  Sure, for huge companies, but most small businesses get handed a few options and the only differences are really the co-pays and deductibles of various points of care.
