Trey Gowdy Shreds ObamaCare Contraception Mandate

Posted by on Nov 28, 2013 at 12:09 pm

We can’t get enough Trey Gowdy. Heck, we’re almost of the mind to ask for a man-date with him.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) accused President Barack Obama of misleading women in order to win reelection by advertising a contraceptive mandate in ObamaCare that he knew would be struck down by the Supreme Court.

“He knows he’s not going to win this at the Supreme Court, but he won in 2012, and that was his real objective,” Gowdy said in an appearance on Fox News’s “On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren.”

As ObamaCare has been implemented, a provision requiring employer-provided health insurance to offer free birth control has met with fierce opposition. While churches are exempted from the rule, religiously based organizations and for-profit corporations are not.

Several companies, including Hobby Lobby, have sued, claiming that the forced provision of birth control violates their owners’ religious beliefs and is illegal under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as well as the First Amendment.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court announced that it would hear Hobby Lobby’s case after the company succeeded in winning an injunction against the mandate in July.

Gowdy predicted that the Supreme Court will decisively strike down the mandate as illegal, and claimed that Obama was equally aware this was the likely outcome.

    Team Obamee has no idea what’s in store for them when Gowdy’s prediction is proven right. What I believe we will see is a ruling that will declare that a business has religious rights and that it can refuse to follow a host of federal laws that it objects to under the Bill of Rights.

    Don’t like it? Work somewhere else. If your employer is a devout Christian, in a Christian country, with Christian values, and chooses to hold employees to those values, the Constitution is clear about that.

    At the very least it’s your rights versus the company’s, and they’re the ones employing you. Guess who loses in that battle 100% of the time?

    This is a Christian nation. Get over it, libtards.

    the bottom line is that the college sluts were paying $100/month for health insurance and $10 for birth control.

    Under Obama Care they get to pay $225/month for health insurance but get freeeeeeeeeeeeeee birth control.

    Net loss per month for freeeeeeeeeeeee birth control is $115/month and the donks wonder why the youth is not signing up for Obama Health care and paying double.
