It looks like the U.S. Senate will vote on the latest ObamaCare controversy.

They are calling it a restoration of "conscience rights".

S.1813 is an amendment to ObamaCare.

Lots of resistance from Democrats as expected.

March 01, 2012

( - The U.S. Senate plans to vote Thursday on a Republican-sponsored amendment that would restore "conscience rights" to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The amendment -- sponsored by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and attached to an unrelated transportation bill -- would remove "inflexible mandates" that prevent individuals from exercising their rights of conscience and that impede their ability to freely participate in the health care marketplace.

The intent of the legislation is "to ensure that health care stakeholders retain the right to provide, purchase, or enroll in health coverage that is consistent with their religious beliefs and moral convictions, without fear of being penalized or discriminated against under (Obamacare)."

ObamaVote !

If it passes, that could mean that all the hundreds of lawyers must think it may in fact be unconstitutional,

and they can get out easy now instead of later.

If it fails, look for a bigger fight

Purpose: To amend the Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act to protect rights of conscience with regard
to requirements for coverage of specific items and services.

They cite Thomas Jefferson in the bill too !!

I wonder how many Senators actually respect our rights of conscience

Going to the doctor must be a real pain because of all these laws and amendments you're all being put through lately.

I wonder what the next guy will try and do.
