‘Sobby Lobby’ rides again: Forget ‘it’s the law,’ Harry Reid pledges action against Hobby Lobby ruling
**Written by Doug Powers
Reid should be able to focus on this in the coming weeks thanks to all the extra time freed up by not worrying about a budget combined with the fact that he’s insane:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Democrats will take up legislation in the “coming weeks” to address last month’s Supreme Court decision that allowed some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare’s contraception mandate.
Democrats on Capitol Hill have overwhelmingly criticized the high court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case and are working to craft a response that would restore the coverage, though no specifics have yet been outlined.
“We’re going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation,” Reid said on the Senate floor Monday as he ticked off the Senate’s to-do list over the next several weeks.
It wasn’t very long ago that Reid and the Dems said an Obamacare ruling by this very same Supreme Court was “the law,” and tough pomegranates if you didn’t like it:
I need to remind everyone that Obamacare is THE LAW and it has been found CONSTITUTIONAL. We are not re-litigating this.

Sorry Harry, but the contraception mandate has been found in violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act you voted for and President Clinton signed in 1993. IT’S THE LAW.
Maybe Reid’s anti-Hobby Lobby legislation will be a bill to overturn the RFRA — all while blaming the law on the Koch brothers of course.
Harry Reid bonus cuckoo points: He considers Clarence Thomas to be a white man.
