Letter to the Editor for Dec. 13, 2013

President doesn’t make laws; that’s Congress’ job

Just read the letter in today’s paper from Pete Sundin. Two things struck me. Mr Sundin, the president and his “administration” do not make laws. Congress makes laws.  The president either signs the congressional bills into law or vetoes them. That is his only power re: laws. 

The second thing is business owners are not being forced to provide birth control to their employees; they are being told to provide insurance or get into one of the state exchanges and thus choose the insurance they want. Which part of that insurance the employees choose is none of anyone’s business.  It’s really quite simple; please don’t make it any harder for yourself.
