Do these liberals actually believe the sound waves that emanate from their own mouths - "ask our bosses’ permission to receive basic preventive health care"? Let's be accurate here, libs, you are not ASKING anything, you are DEMANDING your boss give you something for free. If my employer identified a particular health benefit to be excluded from coverage, regardless of what it is or why they want to exclude it, I do not believe I have the right to have the government come in and FORCE my employer to provide it. Where do the libs come up with this belief in right by force?

Common Core should be judged by the color of its skin not by the character of its content. Even if Common Core was the best curricula ever designed it would still be a bad idea because it removes power from the people and sends it to The Capitol.

Good point. With regard to affirmative action, exactly how do blacks benefit by being held to a lower standard? When do we begin judging people by the content of their character?
I really don't think this is a good idea. Instead of indicting the king, we should be indicting the king's court. I think it would be more effective to go after Obama's minions - impeach them for failing to protect the constitution or to properly conduct the office they hold or for lying under oath to Congress. Once the underlings start feeling the flames at their feet, they'll start singing.
Please offer concrete examples.
Mr. Barber, your summation nailed it. I have always looked for a way to hold a mirror up for the liberals to see themselves in the same position. What if the government forced them to do something that was a violation of their religious beliefs or even their conscience? It has been a bit difficult, though, to find a suitable example.
And it really isn't that "someone else ought to pay"; their belief is that the government should FORCE someone else to pay.
Ginsburg's quote that it "bears note in this regard that the cost of an IUD is nearly equivalent to a month's full-time pay for workers earning the minimum wage" reveals an estrangement from the Constitution that is nothing short of astounding. It is as if she believes the expense is the salient point not consistency with the Constitution. Many of these liberal women, and apparently Ginsburg is one of them, seem to believe that someone else ought to pay for these birth control methods on the sole basis that they are expensive and therefore out of reach for lower income women.
Though I have to admit that Marcus was on the money with her first question: "How did the Supreme Court manage to agree unanimously that police must obtain a warrant before searching cellphones yet split on whether employers must offer contraception as part of their health-care plans?" I have the same question.
This is where the leftists make me nuts. Marcus's position that "understanding the importance of access to birth control" was key to getting this decision right is crazy. The leftists believe that if they think something is a good thing, the government has every authority to mandate it. Access to birth control is important, therefore the feds can require employers to provide it. Whether there is a Constitutional basis for it does not get a reaction from a single synapse. End of discussion.

How did we get from the limited government, restricted power concepts that were pervasive at the founding of this nation and embedded in our founding principles and documents to today where the federal government has the power to decide which healthcare benefits are required and the ability to compel employers to provide them? Hobby Lobby was able to halt the barbarians on what appears to be the very thin thread of religious freedom, but what would stop the federal government from compelling employers to provide other benefits? What stops them from compelling employers from providing free lunches? Free transportation from/to work? Six weeks of paid vacation? Free tickets to the opera?
