Tyler (KETK) — Today's Daily Caller reports Hillary Clinton is the latest liberal to slam the Supreme Court's ruling on Obamacare's birth control mandate Monday, calling the decision in favor of Hobby Lobby "deeply disturbing."
"It's the first time that our court has said that a closely held corporation has the rights of a person when it comes to religious freedom," Clinton said at the Aspen Ideas Festival, TPM reports. "I find it deeply disturbing that we are going in that direction."
The funny thing is she is ripping a law apart that her husband Nill Clinton signed into law in 1993.
The Daily Caller report continues: The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was, ironically, signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The act says the government may only "substantially burden a person's exercise of religion" when it meets a demanding test - one that the Obamacare birth-control mandate didn't live up to.
When pressed on her husband's approval of the law that struck the final blow to Obamacare's pet provision, Clinton brushed aside his involvement.
When Bill Clinton signed the act into law in 1993, "there were legitimate cases of discrimination against religions," she told reporters. "This is certainly a use that no one foresaw."
I was up and paying attention in 1993. I can't remember any religion being persecuted. Not then, I can now.
This is not a war on women. The left is leading a war on the religious right.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
