Senate Democrats unveil legislation to reverse high court's Hobby Lobby ruling


Greg Nash

Senate Democrats introduced legislation on Wednesday to effectively reverse the Supreme Court’s decision last week exempting some employers from having to provide insurance coverage for contraception.

The law would bar for-profit corporations from seeking exemptions from the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that their health plans cover contraception costs. Religious institutions would still be able to opt out.

“Our bill simply says that your boss cannot get between you and your own healthcare,” Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) told reporters. Murray is the bill’s chief sponsor.

Is the border surge a humanitarian issue or an invasion from South America?

“Last week, we saw the Supreme Court give CEOs and corporations across America the green light to design legally mandated healthcare coverage for their employees. Women across the country are outraged,” she said.

Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), a cosponsor who is in the midst of a tough reelection contest, said over 60,000 women in Alaska who use birth control would be impacted by the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores decision.

“I can tell you [during] my trip I just returned from in Alaska, this was the topic,” he said. “Women are talking about this issue as an impact to their lives, their livelihood and their economic security.”

If these  60,000 + women want to get laid then they need to pay for there own damn protection period.

Say it again and again and hold feet in the fire!

EVERY EXECUTIVE, LAW ENFORCER, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, AND JUDGE IN THE COUNTRY, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, AT ALL TIMES is constitutionally (Article 6) and 2nd oath/duty bound and empowered to aggressively defend and enforce the Constitution AS IT IS DOCUMENTED, RATIFIED, AND WRITTEN; AGAINST ANY VIOLATOR!   NONE ARE EMPOWERED TO ALTER, UNDERMINE OR ABANDON ANYTHING!

Religious freedom is as simple as 16 words of supreme Constitutional law!   “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”   NO JUDGE OR OFFICER CAN ALTER OR UNDERMINE IT WHILE IN OFFICE.   The oath/duty words “preserve, support, protect, defend, allegiance, true faith, obligation, etc.” apply 24 hours, every day in office… word by simple word, where desecration of that sacrament is defined as treason by Webster’s Dictionary!

Give the bill sponsors and everyone who voted for the bill a copy of this and demand vote conformation or retraction, with witnesses to their action.   Then process treason charges with Holder to press treason charges for any confirming intent to violate Amendment 1!!   Likewise hold Holder to his oath/duty in the same direct manner

ANY JUDGE OR OFFICER that ALTERS, UNDERMINES OR desecrates those sacraments are committing treason (Webster’s Dictionary)!   Make no accommodation for liars, thieves, or traitors.   Remember the “progressive’s” Arab Spring.     Seeds of evil bear bitter fruit!

It will sit in the senate as a waste of paper because it will never make it through the house.

I agree with what has been written but would like to add this not a womens right issue or taking away controceptives.Look at what Reed said that five white men made this decision. this ia not a doubt a mockery to our surpream court and he should be taken to task about this.

They are wasting their dictatorial thuggish ways to try and override the Big Court. Obama is losing power every day and the Supremes know this is his last term and they could care less. Does lame duck ring a bell? There will be some more boat rocking rulings coming down the pipeline before the next 2 years are out. They now realize what a gigantic screw up was made on the ACA or healthcare or Ah blamey care fiasco. It's not through playing out as of yet. Even some of the democrats want to run and hide from that jewel.

They had better not do this!

It is just another distraction from the real problems and scandals. And the media will run with it.

Let them pay for their own abortion pills....Hobby Lobby pays for 16 birth controls out of 20 and that is more than generous...  

The usual libtard lies.  The ruling had NOTHING to do with contraception which Hobby Lobby provides.  It has everything to do with murdering babies by using abortofacients.  Dem/Socialists love killing American babies.  They just love abortion.  Unfortunately, their mothers disagreed.

Some women are just dumb b-----s. The militant left women are embarrassing. All of this is the oldest trick in the book. Look over here...... ,while the country burns to the ground. What till the Islamist come to America. That will be the least of their problems.

Why are men in the Senate so worried about irresponsible promiscuous women and sluts need for abortions and birth control?

People do not have to work for Hobby Lobby! or work for the Little Sisters!

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
