Government 'forcing' I

After reading Peg Bittner's screed “Forcing their beliefs” , I almost fell out of my chair in disbelief and amazement. The Trib highlighted the quote, “That decision is made by you and your situation, not the employer, and not the clergy at church. You decide on your personal care!”

She also opines that the Catholic Church and employers are “forcing” their beliefs on us.

Oh, really! What planet does Ms. Bittner live on?

I am a practicing Catholic, and the church has never “forced” me or my wife or daughters to choose the type of health care we use, nor has my employer, US Airways. But I can educate her on what does: ObamaCare !

This monstrosity “forces” us to give up our own plans and doctors, even if we like them, and “forces” us to buy insurance we don't need or want, at a higher price.

We were told we had to pass ObamaCare before we could see what's in it. And now a majority of Americans believe our president lied to us on this issue. Period!
