Is the President's contraceptive mandate a precursor to cutting government aid to religious groups?


In the first week of February 2012, American President Barack Obama signed a government mandate that forced religious institutions that offer insurance to employees to include contraceptives in the insurance plan. The president's decision caused a major stir from the Catholic church, GOP political opponents, and members of his own Democratic party. I wonder if the President Obama floated a fight he knew he could not win in order to justify something else; that is, a move to cut all federal aid from religious institutions such as religious-backed colleges and universities?
