Earlier today I posted about Roy Blunt’s bogus “Fact Check” on the topic of the Blunt-Rubio-Ayotte Amendment. I conjectured that his vocal role as a leader of the anti-contraception brigade wasn’t having the desired payoff, and that maybe Roy was feeling a little heat. And lo and behold, a new poll finds that, indeed, there aren’t many people that’ve been taken in by the phoney-baloney “religious freedom” line he’s peddling.
Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos and the SEIU used the “employer’s religious beliefs or moral convictions” language referenced in the amendment and got the following result:
Employers should be allowed to deny coverage based on their beliefs ……….25%
All workers should be allowed to access health care services regardless of their employer’s beliefs…… 67%
Not sure ….. 8%
Just goes to show …. you can certainly fool some of the people all of the time, but oh ye of little faith, you can’t fool ’em all when it hits this close to home.
