Major fallout package -- missive from the president's new plan for health care coverage of birth control the White House now backpedaling after there was an -- from the Catholic Church.
Now some church leaders are saying the new plan isn't good enough.
Will this fight going on until November will it go on till November will it hurt -- president's chances for reelection it what does it mean for the GOP candidates.
Angela McGlowan is a Fox News political analyst Chris -- is a former aide to democratic senator Chuck Schumer and a Fox News contributor.
And it's great to see both that the -- fair balance let's take a look at this.
-- you first unique conference of Catholic bishops are not happy.
Where they stand right now and how influential group are they on voters.
The end very influential group and he's still out there Jamie have some of those one issue voters -- a pro lifers.
But this decision Jamie that the president made was not about religious freedom.
It wasn't about the Catholic Church is about independents in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
And it was about his -- some Florida.
Those states are very important.
For him to win reelection he does not want to lose the Hispanic basin mine -- I have those independent voters way to the GOP.
This -- Do you mean women.
Women didn't at the bottom line is this when -- well people that has.
A belief in pro life you have people that believe that the government should stay out of reproductive purposes are conscious that -- that's a strong voting bloc that's Senegal and vote their conscience.
Chris well president said he made an accommodation -- was it truly an accommodation wasn't enough to satisfy.
I think it's enough to satisfy independents now this may come to a surprise to a lot of people but.
Americans had sex all the time homer region's other than pro creation Angela.
We all -- We all.
And I think that's really high commissioner Chris this Chris come on -- -- I -- -- PA ID I ended.
It really the president had has a mandate that you have to buy health insurance including and that health insurance he wants women to get what they need including birth control.
Catholics have a really hard time -- rice and he still mandating.
That women who worked for Catholic institution I'll be able to get what ever they need -- whatever they want Jamie.
Jamie let me get in here because Catholics don't have a problem with this the Catholic Church -- -- problem with this and the Catholic Church has been wrong many times and they've -- been amended depositions and I believe -- will come around on birth control as well.
At some point but the Catholic parishioners are already way ahead of them on this 98%.
Of Catholics use birth control and 77%.
Of Catholic women trip to fort.
Paying for it okay so I'm not -- laid out is that I'm.
-- -- I don't know if you're Catholic.
But I am a -- -- and I am very conservative and I am a pro -- that's.
Yes but that in fact I don't not to -- that none of the bishops.
In the Catholic Church I -- people at Notre Dame I know religious organizations have a disease or -- do not want to dance contraceptives.
The morning after pill to their female workers they don't want it and -- -- Nowadays it doesn't matter that it.
Chris if the president says with this accommodation that they have to give it but you know what they don't have to have the conversation with the employee if they don't feel comfortable.
The insurance guy and he can let him know what's available including that.
Morning after our five day after pale even though that's against their religious beliefs.
Well that's all within the mandate that's required it's being constitutionally challenged and -- just any of this really matter to the race right now.
Jamie I think the thing that matters the race right now -- it's gaining up our right conservatives who might do something crazy.
Like nominate Rick Santorum.
-- the Republican nominee for president and that could only be good news for the president of the United States good let's -- guys Rick Santorum doesn't just not want the Catholic Church the Paper contraception.
Rick Santorum believes that contraception and of itself should be banned in America but -- -- if -- I think that's does not tell in the suburbs.
If Chris thinks that this helps Rick Santorum because of his beliefs of the people who believe what he believes go his way and he's on a bit of a surge right now let's admit it.
Then what does it do for President Obama.
We're not do.
President Obama bottom line under estimate the Christian coalition and this country not only Catholics not only independents.
-- -- -- That do not want the federal government.
In our bedrooms and talent -- charges that they have to get.
On the nation's women are part of organizations contraception number one number -- I don't wow me.
They're Rick Santorum is going to be the Republican nominee to Latin like Rick Santorum yes can Rick Santorum defeated Barack Obama and now -- Mitt Romney.
Yes not believe that he will be our nominee.
Right on some of those issues while Chris -- -- agreeing with you but Chris what does the president do now is this accommodation enough.
Are you satisfied -- the issue where is do you think it will withstand the overall constitutional challenge that the government should or -- not be telling us.
What we have to buy for health insurance and when and who has to pay for it.
Well you know that the debate over whether or not the government should or shouldn't tell.
You to buy health insurance is a completely different debate and what the Catholic churches employees over the Catholic Charities in Catholic hospitals and Catholic colleges employees should have in -- -- that's a different topic.
But what I what I will say is this cannot be making Mitt Romney comfortable what about -- I'm asking about your candidate -- -- -- we go.
President Obama Wear -- at yet you get the final word Christian it's about President Obama ha -- -- talk to -- I'll get over it I think.
-- -- I am not happy the way this whole thing unfolded but I think that this conversation helps President Obama because of these guys are talking about.
Contraception are talking about the federal government blocking women's rights.
And that anon is -- and get them -- and that's just answer question number one.
Obamacare is unconstitutional.
Number two to mandate and religious organizations have to get contraceptives that town summit constitution.
Got to leave it there you know we report and everyone out there will decide in this certainly is an issue.
That is being hotly debated and talked about all across this country thanks to both absolutely you have a great -- -- you guys.
