Obama Plans Major Obamacare Speech to Liberal Catholic Group

Washington Examiner

President Obama will tout his healthcare law Tuesday to a Catholic group that has consistently supported the law despite deep divides over its birth control requirement.In a speech to the Catholic Health Association — which represents hundreds of hospitals and nursing homes across the U.S. — the president will talk about the law’s major tenets and make his case that it has improved health plans for virtually everyone, in addition to expanding coverage to millions.The address comes just days before the Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling that could halt the healthcare law’s insurance subsidies to millions of Americans.Like the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Catholic Health Association opposes birth control, which employers are now required to provide for workers. But the two groups split when the administration issued a conscience accommodation allowing religious hospitals, schools and charities to ask a third party to provide the benefit.
