    Good for them; I like the union decision even better.

    I'll be interested to see the voting makeup and the justification. I'm also wondering if this will have an impact on a company providing services as well.

    Excellent. I'm glad to see both this decision, and the one regarding union dues wrt the health care issue.

    Great news !

    Saw some Democrat Politician hack on Chris Wallace's show yesterday.

    He equated a HL win to " discrimination ".

    Unbelievable.

    Hopefully, this will be the first major straw to break this bloated, ineffective camel's back.

    Far and wide, you hear the massive complaints over the skyrocketing costs and ruination that Obamacare is causing. Simple doctor's visits have become costly headaches for millions upon millions of people.

    And still, the sign-ups are sparce and consist of scarcely few healthy people.

    This is what Obama gets for trying to compromise. He should have gone with true Socialized Medicine, which would have avoided this situation.

    From the AP:

    The justices' 5-4 decision Monday is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies' health insurance plans.

    That would have been even a sweeter rejection by the courts. And this is what Democrats get for shoving legislation down Americas throats. Obamacare was held up by the SCOTUS only to have it's legs broken. Limp baby limp!
    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.
