Is it just a coincidence that so many of these fast-food places that sell salt and grease laden trash and call it food are getting their panties in a twist about healthcare?

No. It is about personal liberty.
Not some delusional spin.

It is ridiculous to force others to pay and contribute to what is exactly known to be others "recreational...sex. It would make more sense to pay the hotel bill so they do not get cold. This thing for the recreational, a non necessitous in the guise of health should be a very easy argument....why not youngsters helmets for batting practice..? whats more important looking out for the toddlers in this world or horsing around trying to act like a family guy with no job...get your mind out of the gutter and go do something productive for the day bud instead of acting like something has been done. Thats right beer-head, your the problem.

Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a "gravely immoral" practice.
Willful ignorance. There is a long list of medical conditions such as endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome that contraception is indicated for that have nothing to do with preventing pregnancy or enabling recreational sex.

Since the Supreme Court (pssst, the people who decide what is constitutional or not) have decided that Obama Care is within the powers of Congress to pass, you are plain wrong.

Personally, I don't think there was anything special protecting the constitution prior to 1852. The constitution is alive and well and just because the reactionaries don't like Social Security, Medicare, abortion rights, etc., doesn't make them unconstitutional.

So why can't they afford HC for their employees? Fast Food competes with other domestic fast food providers who are in the same situation. They really don't have to worry about Chinese pizza delivery.

It's been estimated that adding HC for employees would add about 15 cents to a pizza. But I will tell you why they oppose HC -- right wing ideology.
