1: Most US employers have been required to provide contraception coverage since the year 2000. The Bush administration enforced the law, which had no religious exemptions (note:the ACA does have religious exemptions, so ObamaCare is actually better for bosses). Did Hobby Lobby sue the Bushies? No, Hobby Lobby did not sue the Bushies.
2: Hobby Lobby invests a lot of money in abortion drug makers, IUD makers, and other such. They have no religious concerns about taking money earned from abortion drugs and other birth control money-makers; they just don’t want to pay out for them.
3: Hobby Lobby has plenty of money to pay for insurance coverage for its employees: why, they are doing so well, they could afford to raise starting wages to fourteen dollars an hour. They did that a year ago.
So, government policy had nothing to do with Hobby Lobby’s lawsuit. And religion had nothing to do with their lawsuit. Money had nothing to do with their lawsuit. Employee retention had nothing to do with their lawsuit. Facts are facts, people, and you cannot argue with them.
So, why DID they sue President Obama? Why did a Fundagelical-run company sue over the ACA? One can only speculate. My theory is that it’s all a big political stunt.
After all, Hobby Lobby covered birth control when the Republicans were in charge. They only squealed when a Democrat got elected President.
Lying, hypocritical, greedy, partisan bastards.
