    It impedes HHS's authority.

    Well like I said in another post here, how far does that religious freedom of a company go. Can they claim that a procedure such as a transfusion, etc. shouldn't be paid for because it goes against their religion?

    Sadly, this decision will probably result in an increase in abortions. Good job Christian lobby group!

    I found it interesting that in BOTH decisions, they were rather narrow and apply pretty much to a much more defined group and the Court passed up the opportunity to make a sweeping decision which would have turned the nation to the hard right.

    Not in a real significant way IMO though. The main, and IMO the most important parts of the ACA, are still in tact.

    That is such a bs argument. Contraception is easily obtained if needed, many times for free. If an employee of Hobby Lobby wants to not get someone pregnant they can always "pull out" as well. Sadly, such an argument makes people seem dumber than a bag of nails and perhaps, just perhaps --- those that are shouldn't pass on their gene pool. So I agree - Good job Christian lobby group!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Basically the Supreme Court sidestepped the bigger more important issue if larger publicly traded company's can hold religious beliefs, but a closely held one like Hobby Lobby can. Really people are going to think this decision by itself will do more than what it actually does.

    I'm reading through the opinions of Alito, Kennedy & Ginsburg. Interesting musings.

    It would have never passed and the Democrats know it.

    I agree, and have said that.

    This wasn't a positive ruling for HHS in any way, shape or form. That is the reality.
