NY Congresswoman Kathy Hochul Booed Over ObamaCare Mandate

“It is an absolute insult and Catholics deserve better. We were taking care of this country’s sick long before the government got involved in it.” said one attendee at a town hall meeting in Lancaster New York as freshman Congresswoman Kathy Hochul attempted to speak to her constituents.

When Hochul spoke in support of the President, the crowd booed. Many in the audience carried signs, including one that read: “Kathy why have you betrayed our Catholic institutions?” One woman in the crowd told Hochul: “This President has lied to us repeatedly when he proclaims support for conscience protection in his infamous speech at Notre Dame as well as in the executive order he signed following passage of the health care law. He is not worthy of your support in this matter.”  Another man shouted “It’s an insult to the Catholics in this country to even listen to that gibberish. It is an absolute insult and Catholics deserve better. We were taking care of this country’s sick long before the government got involved in it.”

Although the town hall was open to any topic the attendees wanted to talk about the focus was clearly on the health care mandate and what folks in the crowd certainly perceive as a slight against the Catholic Church by this administration and by extension Democrat lawmakers.

Pastor Leon Bienart of Our Lady of Pompeii Church also asked Hochul if the President or Congress consulted with Catholic bishops before they issued the policy. Hochul replied that it was a good question and she would try to get an answer. The Congresswoman also replied this way to the questions and criticism “We’re not gonna agree on this one. I’m gonna tell you that I will stand for our religious freedoms. But I don’t see a conflict here. Now that there’s been an accommodation that says religious institutions do not have to provide these services. So we’re just going to have to disagree on that.”

Again the takeaway or lesson from this should be “pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it!” is not the way America should do business!!!
