The RNC's abortion problem

The RNC issues a statement that sounds like they've immediately canceled the abortion coverage in their health plan, although if you read through, it's actually going to take a little time.

What hadn't occurred to me is that this represents a real donor problem for them as so many of their donaters would hold back if they thought part of their donations to the RNC went to a health plan covering abortion.

I would expect to see every Republican campaign and organization asked this question from here forward as it represents a way for Dems to take away a partial week or so of fundraising.

(And there's also the ugly image of these women losing this coverage.)

Later: Does no one in the RNC's insurance pool get abortion coverage? Because that money the RNC is paying to Cigna is paying for that procedure somewhere whether the RNC takes the benefit or not.


  • I'd be interested in knowing if the RNC plan covers birth control and what forms... and Viagra.

  • Good question. They're headed down the slippery slope.

  • The RNC is toast baby!! But why isnt this bigger news on the so called looney left controlled media?? It seems to me they would be all over this by now. Something tells me they dont want to open that can of worms any further. B ut BRAVO to the journalist who broke this story!!! I Just Love It!!!

  • Yeah.

    I think they don't want to make too big a stink because it's something they could pull out again against others. If it costs the RNC too much now, nobody will ever make the same mistake again.
