Harry Reid: ‘We’re going to
do something’ on Hobby Lobby

Politico, by Seung Min Kim

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/7/2014 8:48:20 PM

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

No, Harry, you´re not. First it would have to get past the Rebulicans in the Senate. As if they want to agree to unlimited Obambicare. Second, Even Boehner isn´t stupid enough to let a Dem Senate bill come to the floor of the House.. Talk big Harry and carry a feather duster casue that is all this is.

You miss the point, folks. Harry et al could not give a fig about women getting contraceptives (or healthcare for that matter). They just want the illusion that they care so they can sway low info voters.

Besides, in what universe does it make sense that an employer be required to buy contraceptives for employees?

Harry Reid is a moron. Does he really think that people won´t work for a company because it won´t cover Ella or one of the other 3 methods that kill the fertilized egg. Seriously, we´re only talking about the situation in which the woman isn´t on the free pill and the guy didn´t use a free condom. Are people really going to turn down a job with benefits because they have to pay for one treatment after unprotected sex? Try it Harry, you might find out what people think outside the DC bubble.

Only a LoFo will believe it is about contraceptives. Abortion does not prevent conception, it is birth control only because it prevents a live birth, but the four types of birth control that Hobby Lobby objected to were all abortifacients, that destroy a fertilized egg, or if you prefer, kill the beginning of a baby.

Words have meanings, and we all need to explain the meanings of the words that are being misused by the LIEberals.

It is obvious Dingy Hairy did not read the Supreme´s decision, nor was he interested enough to read the suit filed.
Hobby Lobby insurance pays for 16 different types of contraception for it´s employees. Hairy needs to get his head out of the dung hole it´s now in.

Adding to what #8 said. No one has to work for any company that will not give them the benefits they demand. Don´t work for Hobby Lobby. Find another job. Does Reid really believe what he says? The only time I see him on TV he is reading a statement prepared by someone else. Another moron on the liberal side of the aisle.

Why does no one in the media or the government point out that women who work at Hobby Lobby are NOT being denied contraceptives? They have the option of 16 different contraceptives... just not the four that induce pharmaceutical abortions by destroying a fertilized egg? If a woman wishes to kill her fetus, however, she may still do so with assistance from Planned Parenthood, or by purchasing the killing drug herself. This is America, after all--where no one need take personal responsibility for the result of their sexual conduct, and where women and children are used as pawns in political power plays.

Perhaps Harry Reid and all congressional advocates of abortion rights should reflect on the Sixth Commandment and take the time to read Genesis 18:9-10, Judges 13:2-3, Jeremiah 1:5, Luke 1:13, and Luke 1:31-33. These verses from the Bible foretell the births of Isaac, Samson, Jeremiah, John the Baptizer, and Jesus.

I can only conclude that Dirty Harry wants to kill off the unborn legal citizens through abortion so he can flood the country with the preferred legal immigration of muzzies (thanks to Kennedy) and flood the country with illegals (future lo-fo voters).

In the tapes, Clinton says the reason he didn’t go in for the kill is that he would have had to “destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him (bin Laden).” Scheuer, identified as head of CIA’s bin Laden unit 1995-1999, disputed Clinton’s

There was high drama on the Senate floor this evening. Harry Reid brought on for a vote President Obama’s $2.7 billion proposal to support illegals from Central America who are flooding across the border, in the form of a supplemental budget request. An extremely knowledgeable Senate insider offers this blow-by-blow account of what happened: Harry Reid filled the amendment tree on the supplemental, meaning no amendments can get votes. Sessions offered a motion to table the filled tree with stated purpose of making room to get a vote on the Cruz amendment. “Filling the tree” has been Reid’s preferred strategy

KRGV reports that a refurbished detention center in Karnes City, TX, will be used to house hundreds of women and children who crossed into Texas illegally. The center’s rooms, called “suites,” have only been used to house adult illegal aliens in the past, but with the recent surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America, it will now be used to house kids too. KRGV’s story says that the illegal aliens will only be housed at the center for an average of 23 days, or that’s the federal government’s claim. The facility includes flatscreen TVs in each suite, plus ping pong

A former Clinton-era CIA director is raising new concerns that Iran or North Korea will send U.S. civilization “to a cold, dark halt” by firing a nuke over America’s southern border, which is largely absent of missile defenses. R. James Woolsey said that the two rogue nations would copy the Russians, which launches satellites in an unusual trajectory that doesn’t send their gear over the northern border — the direction the Air Force anticipates a missile attack from. Woolsey is one of the nation’s leaders pushing Congress to defend against so-called electromagnetic pulse attacks. He and other government advisors fear Iran or

White House spokesman Josh Earnest called Israel´s attack earlier this week on a UN school that was sheltering Palestinian children "totally unacceptable and totally indefensible." He did not mention that the Israeli military has said that it was being attacked by Hamas terrorists in the vicinity, nor did he note that Hamas has used the UN to store weapons, to launch rockets at Israeli civilians, or to attack Israeli troops--as even the UN has noted. The attack on the UN facility is certainly regrettable, and might--perhaps--even be unacceptable. But the attack is certainly defensible, and a defense was offered by Canadian

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations.

Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama.

"The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing.

Many young people, especially the anti-social, dislike classical music so much that it can be played to discourage them from intimidating, harassing and robbing. This experiment has been successful over many years in countless locations. The earliest occurrence was in the mid-1980s, when Canadian outlets of 7-Eleven played easy listening and classical music to disperse teenagers loitering outside. After that, companies from McDonald's to Co-op, transport authorities, housing estates and shopping malls around the world have employed this method. In the UK, the first to do so was the Tyne-and-Wear Metro system in 1997, following Montreal’s underground system in Canada.
