Today the White House house says the Supreme Court ruling on contraception coverage jeopardizes women's health.

Really?

The National Journal reports the news this way-- The Supreme Court on Monday weakened Obamacare's controversial contraception mandate, ruling 5-4 that some employers cannot be forced to cover birth control as part of their health insurance plans. The majority opinion, written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, said such a mandate infringes on religious freedom, and therefore can be waived by certain business owners.

But in a blistering, 35-page dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, joined by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, lambasted the majority opinion-delivered by five male justices-as "a decision of startling breadth" that would allow corporations to "opt out of any law … they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs."

The reason they have their robes in a wad: This chips away at their beloved Obamacare.

Isn't it funny how those who say stay out of the bedroom now want to go into our bedrooms? The ruling is for religious freedom. What do they have against religious freedom?

CNN reported the Obama administration will work with Congress to ensure women affected by Monday's Supreme Court ruling will continue to have health care coverage for contraceptives.

Since when has the president wanted to work with Congress?

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Charging interest was against Jewish law?

idiot what are you smoking, crack?

Ever here of neshekh? It was permissible to make loans with interest to non-Jews. What is more they would loan the money to a non-Jew and use that person as a front to loan that very money to OTHER Jews... through the non-Jew!

You liberals need to read up on what you preach.

You need to read your comment below.
You ultra right wingnut conservative wackos try to change everything to fit your situation.
Well,your words are in black & white yet, still you deny them.
This is why you are held in such low esteem by people.
You'd tell your mother she wasn't your mother if you could win an argument.
Do you know who your father is?
Likely not.
If he was half a man he'd deny you were his son.
Bottom line you best have a sitdown with your preacher.
It'll make you a better man.

SCOTUS is deeply divided on this ruling
It will be challenged again when some clear headed thinkers on are the bench.
Hobby Lobby owners should be put to the test.
Do they walk the walk or just talk the talk?
Those are the questions SCOTUS should have addressed.
Jesus did NOT condone charging interest.
It was against Jewish law.
He cleared out the Temple saying "My Father's house is a house of prayer. You have turned it into a den of thieves."
You embarrass your pastor with your stupidity & lies

Eastman,
I'm not nice nor politically correct. I can't stand odumass nor any of his staff nor his cabinet appointments nor his executive orders and especially his views on illegal immigration and amnesty. He doesn't deserve to have his name capitalized nor the office he holds

you are not smart either and don't forget that the only President in the History of our Great Nation to ever grant amnesty was a Republican and an Icon and still a GOD to the T-Party / GOP.

The SCOTUS didn't rule against the democruts. No, they ruled against the liberals who are so busy trying to destroy the country. As a matter of fact, this is the second time in my life I ever supported a SCOTUS decision. As a general rule I put them on the same level as I do liberal democruts and Rhino's. There are simply things which are right and times when something is wrong and the majority of the SCOTUS sided with the vast majority rather than the liberals that live off the Gov.

Again don.. Jesus never came out against buying and selling and making profits. No were did he or any of the apostles said that. Many of their followers were businessmen (as attested by those who took care of Jesus's body after his crucification.) He was not even against governments ("Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's, but give unto God what is God's")

So Hobby Lobby is quite correct in not wanting MORNING AFTER ABORTION PILL coverage.

And quite HYPOCRITICAL by using their business and profits to force abortions on citizens of another nation.

News flash..
FEDS: 85 percent of ObamaCare 'inconsistencies' can't be fixed. Yes 85 percent of 2.9 million “inconsistencies” can't be fixed.
Federal judge threatens to have outside expert investigate lost IRS emails...
New Quinnipiac University survey just dubbed Obama the worst president in six decades
Obama sends attack helicopters to Iraq (and more ground troops as 'advisors'.)
Obama chastised by SCOTUS 13 times in 2 years.

Hope for change in 2014. Can't vote Obama out... CAN dems out!

Hobby Lobby is owned by a bunch of true HYPOCRITES. They are against abortion and birth control in the US and claim it to be their Christian beliefs but then stock their for profit stores with goods they spend their money on that are produced by a commie government by child slave labor in a nation that has forced abortions on their citizens. Hobby Lobby says they will fight spending $ on Americans health care to include birth control but they will spend millions of $ to force abortions in China

because that is their Christian beliefs........Hobby Lobby is no more a Christian Corporation than Charles Manson is a Profit. If they are the representatives of Christianity they give true Christians a bad name.
Next the corporations owned by the jehovah witness people will deny blood transfusions and any medical treatments to their employees and their families (children).

The corporations, which are made up of stockholders (people that is) may very well have their own religious beliefs. And if these stockholders (again people) feel being forced to fork over for the "MORNING AFTER ABORTION PILLS" then you can see why they objected to it. For that was their great objection, being forced to pay for abortion pills as 'contraceptives'.

Now as for capitalizing the president, well I do remember people calling Bush a chimp, nazi, etc... so not capitalizing is no biggie.

Oh but they support FORCED ABORTIONS , CHILD SLAVE LABOR in China by sendinding millions of $$ there. These stockholders (people that is) are NOT CHRISTIANS, they are HYPOCRITES.

Supreme Taliban /Al-Qaeda NO common sense court. Justice so called conservative breyer stated "The Government can pay for the contraceptives"!!!!

So now conservative judges are for BIG Government

The problem I've found with religion is it often times crowds out a relationship with God. Most Christian business owners probably don't concern themselves with employees birth control. Conestoga and Hobby Lobby seem to be in the minority on that issue. I wonder how these companies deal with gay or atheist employees?

Damn SCOTUS, ruled against the Dems. Does this mean they're playing partisan politics again? By definition they are. Let's here the rallying cry from the left!

No they did not rule against the Dems, they ruled against working class women and men. You are just too stupid to understand the big picture and it would be a waste of time to explain it to you.

And you missed the sarcasm.

If a closely held corporation owned by Muslims wanted to have similar variances from a law, you would be so supportive? Tyler is a small city that has a relatively large Jewish population. Would you afford Jewish corporations those same exemptions? I don't think you would. This is about insurance coverage. These companies are paying insurance premiums, not actual health care coverage. Ginsburg was right.

Actually yes, this ruling says the exemptions would apply. The ruling also under pends the idea that the left cannot impose their religious values on America.

Guess we could say that we Now have RELIGIOUS CORPORATE FOR PROFIT DEATH PANELS SANCTIONED BY THE U S SUPREME COURT.

No, it just means the Supreme Court has upheld Freedom of Religion and freedom from religious persecution by the state.

The Lefts religious values are that NOBODYs' religious values should be imposed on any American by any government at any level , business or Corporation, but the right believe that their religious values should be imposed on ALL People and not just Americans by our government, businesses & corporations. Don't agree with that just look at who is trying to overturn freedom of religion Supreme Court Rulings form the 50's, 60's, 70's & 80's and the current supreme court rulings.

The question should be "when has Congress wanted to work with the President". You show your lack of respect for Obama when you capitalize Congress but not President. Your bias is showing loud and clear. With regard to the Supreme Court decision, their robes are in a wad, as you so eloquently put it, not because of the Affordable Care Act, but because of the ramifications (look it up) of their decision. see remainder in next post :)

News flash.. President jokes pastry chef laces pies with crack cocaine...

Same president that joked about ordering the IRS on his enemies...

Makes one wonder...

Hope for change in 2014. Can't vote Obama out, but we CAN vote all the democrats out to dhow our displeasure with this administration.
