Any number of GOP pundits have condemned the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) as the start of the slippery slope to single payer health care in the United States. To that I can add, I only hope!

But as part of yesterday’s Supreme Court Ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom (I hope the […]

“Supreme Court Rejects Contraceptives Mandate for Some Corporations“:

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that requiring family-owned corporations to pay for insurance coverage for contraception under the Affordable Care Act violated a federal law protecting religious freedom. It was, the dissent said, “a decision of startling breadth.”
