Joe Biden and Bill Daley Warn Obama Of Contraceptives Mandate

Two of Obama’s top advisers, who both happen to be Catholics, cautioned the President of the public outcry from his contentious contraceptives mandate forcing religious organizations to pay for birth control under their employee’s health plans.

Vice President Joe Biden and former White House chief of staff Bill Daley both told the president that the decision would be cast as a government intrusion on religious freedom and that it could alienate Catholic voters in swing states, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. The decision has whipped up a frenzy of criticism for the president that he’s been battling since the move went public.

When Joe Biden warns of controversial fallout, you know it’s serious.
