Skip to comments.GOP: 'The Court Ruled On The Side Of Liberty'
Posted on 06/30/2014 9:22:44 AM PDT by PoloSec
The Republican National Committee praised a decision by the Supreme Court Monday in the case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby that will allow employers with religious objections to refuse to pay for contraception. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus issued a statement shortly after the decision was announced wherein he described it as a victory for "religious freedom" and "liberty."
"This decision protects the religious freedom that is guaranteed to all Americans by the First Amendment, and we're grateful the Court ruled on the side of liberty. The central issue of this case was whether the federal government can coerce Americans to violate their deeply held religious beliefs, and thankfully the Court has upheld the proper limits on the government's power," Priebus said.
Priebus also described the decision as proof President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act is "intrusive."
"The fact that Americans had to bring this case in the first place reveals once again just how intrusive ObamaCare is. It's a misguided one-size-fits-all policy that not only failed to fix our healthcare system but has trampled on our Constitutional rights," said Priebus. "Americans deserve a healthcare system that allows them to make the right choices for themselves, gives them more freedom, and comes nowhere close to encroaching on our First Amendment rights."

I wish the gop would shut up and not taint this victory with their treacherous weasel words.
I despise anything that comes from official republican sources.

shut up RNC/GOPe..
It was one of YOUR people that let this POS out of committee knowing it would pass...
Clean up your damn mess rinos..
i am a little surprised that they are happy with the decision... i just do not equate the GOP with freedom anymore...
” i just do not equate the GOP with freedom anymore...”
Exactly my thinking. When someone like Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz or Louie Gomert, or others who have had the courage to stand for something, speaks, I like to read what they say, even if I disagree with them.
When yet another mouthpiece of the gop yaps, I have no interest in their politi-babble.
Exactly...is this issue safe for the G(utless)O(pinionless)P(uttycats)
