Weekly Standard:

On Friday afternoon, the Obama administration released an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to announce it was proceeding as planned with its new federal mandate that abortion pills, sterilization procedures, and contraception must be provided without co-pays under virtually all health care plans.

The mandate will force almost all employer-provided health care plans, including those purchased by employers and employees who object on moral or religious grounds to paying for these services, to pay for abortifacients, contraception, and sterilizations by August 2012.

The mandate will force religious institutions--such as charities, universities, and hospitals--to provide these services by August 2013. As Cardinal Timothy Dolan said when the Obama administration announced the rule in January, "In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences."

I just don't see this as a winning issue for Obama (and it is certainly a losing issue for the country). He doesn't seem to care. I guess that means he expects to lose in 2012 or is certain he's going to win regardless of how unpopular he makes himself. He's like a truck driver going down a steep hill with no brakes. Maybe he'll make it, maybe he won't. But he's decided he's going to enjoy the ride either way.
