Posted on 07/07/2014 1:43:27 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Democrats will take up legislation in the coming weeks to address last months Supreme Court decision that allowed some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacares contraception mandate.
Democrats on Capitol Hill have overwhelmingly criticized the high courts 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.
Were going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation, Reid said on the Senate floor Monday as he ticked off the Senates to-do list over the next several weeks.

A supreme court decision is NOT Legislation, and if he wanted to “do Something” about “the legislation” the only thing he could do is Repeal Obamacare....
Once the SCOTUS issues a decision, isn’t it the law of the land? Or does that only work when the Democrats like the decision? /sarc
Harry is a detestable slug.
Exactly, and also, the left always, always, plays offense. I would say the putative right plays defense, but at least our so-called representatives on “the right”, don’t even do that even more. I think about half of them are secretly playing for the other team.
oops , you do not control the House this time ,LOL, get some Ex-Lax and shift this Harry The Reid
I’m tired of these people with little Bill of Rights tell the government what to do.
It’s time the little people come to heel.
Congress can exempt federal laws from the RFRA. I don’t think it would have a chance of passing, though. The Hobby Lobby decision was mostly about the applicability of the RFRA rather than a constitutional case.
Yeah, too bad there’s that pesky second house of the legislature!
It’s time the big God was called back into the picture.
He’s omnipresent to be sure... but right now it is as with His back turned to us, because we turned our backs to Him.
This was a decision against a rule instituted by the secretary of HHS, not against the law itself.
Hairy Reed is the result of a botched late term abortion. His brains were vacuumed out of his skull, but he somehow survived.
Bills of attainder are illegal in the US. Then again, Reid is a criminal.
That’s probably because for his ilk, they are. (Geithner, etc).
Little hard to “do” something in the Senate without the House.
Some of us turned our backs on him long before it was cool.
And who are the bitter clingers now!
