        I love the Union dues ruling because I have several family members that have been pressured or pretty much screwed over by unions.

        The Hobby Lobby one, on the other hand, leaves the door open massively for abuse or for future rulings that will piss off people that are celebrating right now. I personally think the government should not be mandating female contraception because the "preventative care" argument is absolute BS and it's freaking 9 dollars a month on the high end. If anything, they should be supporting male contraception to try to blunt the spread of STDs. I wish this ruling wasn't even necessary.

          This is just another finding that the Right Wing on the court believes that corporations not only have the rights of individual citizens, but that they have more rights.

            Baby Jesus said Corporations are people too. Don't any of you watch the 700 club or fox news? The least you could all do is read the good book for the cliff notes.

              It turns out you don't have a right to force me to purchase your birth control for you.

              Obama violates the US Constitution again.

                Yes, this decision has taken America back to...3 years ago when women actually had unlimited access but had to--get this--pay for it.

                  There should be no religious stipulation attached. Mandating that I pay for someone else's birth control is clearly unconstitutional no matter which way you spin it.

                  This is a huge defeat to Socialist Regressives, because it takes a small amount of control out of the hands of the federal government, and gives it back to the people.

                  Of course, we must always keep fighting.

                    It shouldn't be that big of a blow to Obamacare. He got his most important ruling when they upheld his fine for people who don't sign up. had that one went against him Obamacare was probably done.

                    But when you pass things, before you know whats in the law, then you get some court rulings to sort it all out. Right?

                      Not at all. They are protecting a companies right to be religious, nothing more.

                      The union ruling is preventing employers from taxing the employees with dues they don't want to pay.

                        Supreme court ruled for the people today, all the people. Just be glad they upheld the fines for not signing up on Obamacare.

                          Next Up. Don't have to cover transfusions, porcine sourced replacement heart values, insulin, etc.

                          This falls deftly under the "beware what you ask for".

                            It's a huge blow. Some women only supported it, because it forced others to pay for their birth control. Obama had convinced them it was their "right". Now that their stealing has been deemed unconstitutional, it doesn't give them a reason to support Obamacare anymore. Much of Obamacare's inherent gender-bias has been removed. The false female-entitlement that Obamacare used to get female support exists no longer.

                            What you're left with is a gender and race neutral monetary mandate to pay for a vastly overpriced product. That will make sense to no one.

                              Comical. An employer can provide zero coverage. But she can't provide otherwise-all-inclusive coverage that denies abortifascients (like most policies actually did prior to the ACA)

                              What ideological flexibility!
