In a stunning loss for religious freedom, the supreme court ruled today that businesses (who also happen to be people) can suppress the rights and freedoms of their employees and force their own religious views upon their employees.
Here is a great article explaining the details:
So what can the employees of Hobby Lobby do?
1) They can quit. Hobby Lobby is a low paying company. Many people work there for lower wages than they can get elsewhere because they like the company owner’s Christian stance. Well if they like the company owner’s greed just as much and they are willing to give up $1,000 in health care costs to fill the pockets of those rich owners, then they will stay employed there. Otherwise they will just leave.
2) They can opt out of the crappy Hobby Lobby health care plan and opt in to an Obamacare plan that provides all the coverage they need!
Is this going to be even another victory for Obamacare? Will they Obamacare get thousands of new signups from women seeking decent health care?
