We Actually NEED This Law? Sadly, Yes.

Democrats in the U. S. Senate and House (no Republicans as yet) have introduced legislation to keep our boss’s paws out of doctors’ exam rooms. This is necessary because the Roberts Court (including corrupt porn addict Clarence Thomas) decided that our employers’ “religious views” are more important than our lives and health:

Democratic Sens. Patty Murray and Mark Udall fought back today against the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling with plans for legislation intended to restore the contraceptive coverage requirement under the Affordable Care Act.

Joined by fellow Democrats from both chambers of Congress and women’s rights groups, the senators urged Republicans to support the bill they have nicknamed “Not My Boss’s Business Act.”

“We are here to ensure that no CEO or corporation can come between people and their guaranteed access to healthcare,” Murray, of Washington state, said, speaking at the Capitol. “I hope Republicans will join us to revoke this court-issued license to discriminate and return the right of Americans to make their own decision about their own health care and their own bodies.”

Christ on Soap-on-a-Rope, are we really having this discussion? Has the “Supreme” court become such a load of Neo-Luddites, or perhaps just plain unhinged by greed, that they truly think that medical care for our wives’ and daughters’ uteri is somehow sacreligious? That clearing up endometrial irregularities will consign Hobby Lobby to a fiery Hell?

Apparently the “Justices” think so, and thus our tax dollars will be wasted on legislative measures to restore the rights we already had in the first place. For a party that claims to want a small government that spends less money, the Repubs sure are spending lots of coin peeping into our bedrooms and Gynecologists’ exam rooms. This law is needed, but it shouldn’t be.
