Irony or Common Sense?

The latest firm to fight back against the birth control convenience item mandate imposed by Ms Shecantbeserious is Eden Foods, which makes and markets soy-based drinks (among other products). They don't find the mandate particularly healthful, and are seeking to opt out of it. As Eden's CEO puts it:

"I'm not trying to get birth control out of Rite Aid or Walmart, but don't tell me I gotta pay for it"

So of course advocates of a national healthcare system immediately pounced on this rather sensible business decision as reprehensible:

"I think we're going to have to put up a list of companies on our website that actively oppose implementation" of health-care reform, says Erin Gill-Ninehouser of the Pennsylvania Health Access Network, which touts [the ObamaTax]"

Nice straw-man you've got there, Erin. Keep it away from the flames.
