Enzi and Barrasso Weigh in on Supreme Court Decision
Both of Wyoming’s US Senators have weighed in on the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case against the contraception section of the Affordable Care Act.
Senator Mike Enzi said…
“The Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious liberty today. The federal government should not have the ability to force people to pay for contraception. I am pleased the court affirmed that Americans have that right to make their own decision on this issue.”
Senator John Barrasso went farther…
“This ruling is a victory for freedom and another blow against the Obama Administration’s unprecedented overreach into the lives of Americans. The Justices made it clear that the Administration does not have the power to force religious leaders and organizations in our country to replace their own moral standards with Washington’s one-size-fits-all mandate.
“The Supreme Court’s decision is also another reminder that the President’s health care law was poorly written and continues to hurt more people than it helps. I am committed to replacing this law with a healthcare system that focuses on lowering costs and making sure that more Americans can get the care they need from a doctor they choose.”
