The 'mandates' laid out by the Heritage Foundation were of an entirely different nature, as they focused on two areas: 1) Employer Mandate, requiring all large companies to provide healthcare coverage and 2) A Catastrophic Insurance Mandate, intended to protect the public from absorbing the costs for uncovered emergency care.
Routine health care was always regarded as an individual obligation.

The theory I was referring to is that the pagan tribes of that area and time period used homosexual acts as a major component of their rituals, and the law against homosexuality was actually a law against participation in the pagan ceremonies.
Backward and wasteful use of resources.
Trump picked U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general, rewarding a staunch supporter whose tough and sometimes inflammatory statements on immigration have reflected his own.
The choice was applauded by the top Republican in the Senate but drew sharp criticism from civil rights activists.
One of the earliest Republican lawmakers to support Trump's White House candidacy, Sessions opposes any path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and was an enthusiastic backer of Trump's campaign promise to build a wall on the border with Mexico.
He has also argued for curbs on legal immigration on the grounds that it drives down wages for U.S. workers.
"How can we trust someone in that role who has demonstrated he thinks all forms of immigration are bad for America?" said Beth Werlin, head of the American Immigration Council.
Sessions and Pompeo seem likely to be confirmed by the Senate despite heavy resistance from Democrats. Republicans will control a majority, with at least 51 seats in the 100-seat chamber, when Congress reconvenes in January. Flynn's post does not need Senate confirmation.
And now they are scared of their own boogeyman, and are having temper tantrums, and holding their breath until they get their way. Acting like they can pout their way into power again.
Like the children they are.
2) There are no anti-homosexual verses in the Bible. There are verses that describe the act of homosexuality as a sin, and describe Marriage as the union of man and woman. Homoesxuals are not sinners because they are attracted to same gender. Homosexuals are sinners because they sin like most everyone else: they lie, they covet, etc. In some cases the engage in homosexual acts, but then so do some heterosexual people. Heterosexual people sin with adultery and pre-marital sex. We are all sinners, join the club. But gay folks don't automatically have some special "dark brand" on their souls because they like people with the same genitals.
As with most things, the lies come from those who are creating strawmen to then plan NEXT STEPS against.
this is an actual quote Bannon gave Michael Wolff:
“Darkness is good,” says Bannon… “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they—“ I believe by “they” he means liberals and the media, already promoting calls for his ouster “—get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”
For Attorney General: Jeff Sessions
And that is what happens if you don't insist on a decent minimum wage for EVERYONE.
And any person who still holds up "The Bible" as some sort of mandate is no better than ISIS.
The New Deal was a series of social liberal programs enacted in the United States between 1933 and 1938, and a few that came later. They included both laws passed by Congress as well as presidential executive orders during the first term (1933–1937) of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
