BUZZING: Today in the Hive
From a TPM Prime member: "The oddity of this decision by Wheaton is that now its students, who are suddenly uninsured, will mostly get coverage elsewhere (perhaps on their parents' insurance if they are under 26 and their parents have insurance, perhaps heavily subsidized through the exchanges). Any of those methods will result in the students getting coverage for birth control. So Wheaton's actions have set in motion a chain of events that will lead to birth control being covered for their students -- exactly the outcome they were trying to avoid. Except now, the students or their parents will have to pay more for their coverage. Heckuva job, Wheaton!"
