Hobby Lobby May Close Because of ObamaCare

  I received this forwarded email today(below picture). How, in any way can we allow ObamaCare to kill American Jobs?
  I read Randall Babish's blog from 9/8 entitled "Does The Constitution Provide For Overt Discrimination Against Christians And Jews and Bias Toward Muslims?" 
  In his blog he suggests  that in the language of ObamaCare, it exempts Muslims from having to participate. If true, that is religious bias. Yet, God lovin' Hobby Lobby may be forced to close because of their beliefs.
 
 
We must defund ObamaCare no matter the government shut down consequences. It is bad for the country.
 
 
Hobby Lobby May Close.

   By David Green, the founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
 
 
   When my family and I started our company 40 years ago, we were working
out of a garage on a $600 bank loan, assembling miniature picture frames..
Our first  retail store wasn't much bigger than most people's living rooms,
but we had faith that we would succeed if we lived and worked according to
God's word.
 
 
   From there, Hobby Lobby has become one of the  nation's largest arts and crafts retailers, with more than 500 locations in 41 states. Our children grew up  into fine business leaders, and today we run Hobby Lobby together, as a family.
 
   We're Christians, and we run our business on Christian principles. I've
always said that the first two goals of our business are (1) to run our
business  in harmony with God's laws, and (2) to focus on people more than
money. And that's what we've tried to do. We close early so our employees
can see their families at night. We keep our stores closed on Sundays, one
of the week's biggest shopping days, so that  our workers and their families
can enjoy a day of rest.
 
 
   We believe that it is by God's grace that Hobby Lobby has endured, and
he has blessed us and our employees. We've not only added jobs in a weak
economy,  we've raised wages for the past four years in a row. Our full-time
employees start at  80% above minimum wage.
 
 
   But now, our government threatens to change all of that.
 
 
   A new government healthcare mandate says that our family business MUST
provide what I believe are abortion-causing drugs as part of our health
insurance.  Being Christians, we don't pay for drugs that might cause
abortions, which means that we don't cover emergency contraception, the
morning-after pill or the week-after pill. We believe doing so might end a
life after the moment of conception, something that  is contrary to our most
important beliefs.
 
 
   It goes against the Biblical principles on which we have run this
company since day one.
 
 
   If we refuse to comply, we could face $1.3 million PER DAY in government
fines.
 
   Our government threatens to fine job creators in a bad economy.
 
   Our government threatens to fine a company that's raised wages four
years running.
 
 
   Our government threatens to fine a family for running its business
according to its beliefs. It's not right. I know people will say we ought to
follow the  rules; that it's the same for everybody. But that's not true.
 
 
   The government has exempted thousands of companies from this mandate,
for reasons of convenience or cost. But it won't exempt them for reasons of
religious  belief.
 
 
   So, Hobby Lobby and my family are forced to make a choice. With great
reluctance, we filed a lawsuit today, represented by the Becket Fund for
Religious  Liberty, asking a federal court to stop this mandate before it
hurts our business. We don't like to go running into court, but we no longer
have a choice. We believe people are more important than the bottom line and
that honoring God is more important than  turning a profit.
 
 
   My family has lived the American dream. We want to continue growing our
company and providing great jobs for thousands of employees, but the
government is  going to make  that much more difficult.
 
 
   The government is forcing us to choose between following our faith and
following the law. I say that's a choice no American and no American
business should  have to make.
 
 
   The government cannot force you to follow laws that go against your
fundamental religious belief. They have exempted thousands of companies but
will not  except Christian organizations including the Catholic church.
 
 
   Since you will not see this in the liberal media, please pass this on to
all your contacts.
 
 
    Sincerely,
 
   David Green
 
   CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
