THWACK! – Supreme Court Shoots Down GOP Backed Liberty Counsel Lawsuit Over Obamacare.



Look out Hobby Lobby because this does not bode well for you.

Today the Supreme Court refused to hear an  attempt to overturn a key part of the Obama administration’s health care law by the heavily GOP backed extremist right wing hate group The Liberty Counsel

The justices did not comment Monday in leaving in place a federal appeals court ruling dismissing Liberty University’s lawsuit. Liberty made several arguments in challenging the portion of the health care law that requires most employers to provide health insurance to their workers or pay a fine. The 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond, Va., rejected those claims.

Said  Mat Staver the head the LC:

“Deciding the case would have highlighted the absurdity of the Supreme Court’s convoluted decision upholding the individual mandate as a tax. Apparently the court was not willing right now to venture back into that morass. We will wait on the court’s ruling next year to decide whether to file a new challenge. It is possible the high court could side-step the HHS abortion mandate issue by deciding that for-profit corporations do not have free exercise of religion rights. I hope the court will decide the issue and strike down this most egregious trampling of the free exercise of religion.”
