Democrats to Pass Bill Overturning Hobby Lobby Decision

By Onan Coca   / 9 July 2014   / 1 Comment   

Well that didn’t take long.

Senate Democrats are preparing to bring a bill to the Senate which will effectively overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling in the recently decided Hobby Lobby case. The Supreme Court ruled that a “closely held” business like Hobby Lobby could indeed handle their business suing their religious principles as a guiding force. For Hobby Lobby, that meant the government could not force them to pay for certain kinds of birth control which could be described as abortifacients. (An abortifacient is a birth control drug that works by causing the baby to be aborted.)

The Democrats worked quickly to get this legislation ready.

Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections.

The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act.

The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said.

bring back“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. “Since the Supreme Court decided it will not protect women’s access to health care, I will.”

House Democrats are developing a companion bill.

While the House Democrats are preparing a bill that is very similar to the one that will be presented in the Senate, there is virtually no chance of the bill passing in the House, thanks to Republican control of that chamber. Which begs the question – why are Democrats even trying this route to begin with?

The answer is simple my friends. Optics and Elections.

By drafting these bills which will die in the House of Representatives, the Democrats can revitalize their war on women propaganda. The claim will be that “once again Republicans are standing between women and their healthcare choices. Republicans are planting their hands firmly into the wombs of America’s women. Republicans, Republican, Republicans…”

Sadly, the mushy brained masses who vote Democrat will buy this drivel hook, line and sinker.

The reality is quite different than the lies Democrats are presenting.

Here is what Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) said, “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s business. Since the Supreme Court decided it will not protect women’s access to health care, I will.”

Pure nonsense.

Hobby LobbyFirst, if you believe your healthcare is not your boss’ business, then how can you logically support forcing your boss to pay for your healthcare? That makes no sense.

Secondly, please explain how the Hobby Lobby decision hinders women’s access to health care? It does not. The four abortifacients can still be purchased in any pharmacy in America. The woman who wants said birth control can even pay to get her own insurance for these things.

Democrats are hoping to use this bill as a bludgeon to use over Republicans’ heads this November in an effort to distract voters from the horrible mess the nation has become after 6 years of Democrat “leadership.” Sadly, it might even work. The media and low-information voters love claptrap like the imaginary “war on women;” it makes things easier for them – it allows them not to think too deeply about certain issues and it’s easy to remember.

Our modern America cares more about cultural choices (like morality, socialism and entertainment) than it does about liberty or justice. So these terms have become perverted in our modern dialogue. Privileges have become rights, Rights have been weakened by political correctness, and citizens who plead for their rights are now called extremists.

For example - Liberals call abortion a right, but in their eyes religion becomes a personal choice that is based on your own bigotry. So abortion must be protected and religion should be marginalized.

 

 
Our founders would have argued that abortion was a crime to be punished as murder. Our founders would have argued that the right to practice your religion must remain sacrosanct.

Our founders would be disgusted to see that Americans now elect people like Patty Murray and Harry Reid to office. They’d be disgusted with us -- and for good reason.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I will be surprised if they have the votes in the senate to pass it.  I think it is one big bluff.

“Your health care decisions are not your boss’s business,” said Senator Patty Murray, Democrat of Washington.

“Your health care decisions are not your boss’s business, comrade.  They are, however, the business of big government.”

whether they do or not, they certainly won't have them in the House.

Yes, but in the Dem leadership's convoluted logic they think this issue is a winner for them, and if they pass it in the senate, then they can make the GOP House the bad guys again.  But I have serious doubts as to whether voting against Hobby Lobby is a winner for the likes of Mary Landrieu and the other red state Dems up for re-election.  It's a vote to expand Obamacare, and it's a vote for public funding of abortion.  I just don't think Harry Reid has the votes for it.  I hope he does, because in the end it will help GOP senate candidates if the senate does pass it.
