Does anyone know if the Little Sisters of the Poor were acknowledged by Obama in his final State of
.....the Union address, along with all the other charitable people invited by Paul Ryan, U.S. Speaker of the House? I watched on and off and didn't see anything. The sisters run 30 nursing homes for the elderly and have also invoked a “conscience clause” in the Health Law Meant to Accommodate Religious Objections. However, Obama is denying them this "clause" after all. The order has taken their case to the Supreme Court, which will be heard in 2016.
I ask that any denigrating remarks please be set aside in this particular case. Thank you.
The case is before the Supreme Court, and given Scalia's death, it isn't hopeful that nuns won't have to pay for healthcare that includes abortion.
Thanks. I'll pay attention. I'll go into my (Supreme Court) link to see if there are any transcripts yet. Personally, I'm not happy that a Catholic hospital may be forced to do something against their conscience....or else pay hefty fines, I presume.

Does anyone know Obama's plans for helping the middle class?I am still deciding on who to vote for. I hear a lot of talk about helping the middle class, but no plans. Being in the lower side of middle class I feel most of what I do hear will hurt us. Has anyone heard real plans?
