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!


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!

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
