So the democrats in the U.S. Senate have introduced a bill that would override the recent decision in the Supreme court concerning Hobby Lobby.
The mantra seems to be this:
“Your health care decisions are not your boss’s business,” said Senator Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington, who led efforts by Senate Democrats to respond to the court ruling.
The bill supposedly addresses the exception in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that guided the majority in the court. In other words, it looks like that the democrats want to impinge on the First Amendment rights of for profit, privately owned corporations.
It’s the quote above that makes me sit back a bit. So, your employer doesn’t have any say in your health care decisions, but your employer must pay for your decisions?
I didn’t like the decision to begin with but this bill looks like a few desperate politicians pandering to their far left demographic, trying to show that they’re going to “do something” about this as they said they would.
Because of that, I really don’t see this bill going anywhere and I doubt it will even pass the senate. It’s just for show. If they really wanted to do something about the decision the obvious solution is to write a bill that would have these devices/drugs addressed in the Supreme Court case paid for by the government(taxpayers).
Fat chance that would happen in an election year.
