The Supreme Court chips away at ObamaCare
Monday the Supreme Court weakened ObamaCare's controversial contraception mandate, ruling 5-4 that some employers cannot be forced to cover birth control as part of their health-insurance plans.
The majority opinion, written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, said such a mandate infringes on religious freedom, and thereby can be waived by certain business owners.
Demonstrators react to hearing the Supreme Court's decision on the Hobby Lobby case outside the Supreme Court in Washington, Monday, June 30, 2014.
The Supreme Court says corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.
However, a blistering dissent by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Sotomayor lambasted the majority opinion, delivered by five male justices, as "a decision of startling breadth" that would allow corporations to "opt out of any law … they judge incompatible with their sincerely held religious beliefs."
Ginsburg said the 'radical' Hobby Lobby ruling may create 'havoc.' Ginsburg was joined by Sotomayor in lambasting the majority opinion by five male justices.
Perhaps the ‘radical’ label should be placed on Ginsburg and Sotomayor rather than on the ruling.
