No country for old nuns

While a federal appeals court ruled that

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius cannot enforce the Obamacare contraception mandate as it is written, but must follow through on a promise to rewrite the rule to accommodate religious liberty,

the cost of Obamacare could drive the Little Sisters of the Poor out of the US before the regulation is rewritten,

They [the judges] ruled that the Obama administration must rewrite the regulation by August 2013 and provide updates to the court every 60 days. If the government fails to do so, the lawsuits may proceed.

Even then, it may not help.

The nuns employ people of many denominations, which makes them ineligible for the exemption being granted churches. They have 300 sisters who tend to the elderly in 30 U.S. cities.

That’s what you get when, in order to know what’s in it, you have to pass a mandate.
