Video: US Senator finds a Supreme Court review of regulation “stunning,” or something

posted at 12:01 pm on March 26, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Maybe Bruce Braley did have a point after all. Yesterday, as the Supreme Court conducted a review of regulation promulgated under the auspices of a massively intrusive law passed by Congress creating the first-ever peacetime federal command economy in American history, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) found it “stunning” that “nine people are going to make the decision” on whether religious liberty will trump the Department of Health and Human Services’ mandate to solve a non-issue. Apparently, the lawmaker has little familiarity with the legal process and the right to challenges laws and regulation. Of course, she’s never been to law school, so …

“I’ve worked hard to make sure that women have access to the right kinds of health care, and it’s their choice, not their employer’s choice,” Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday.

“Sitting in that court today, it was stunning to me to recognize that nine people are going to make that decision — and will decide for a long time to come — whether women have to question when they go to work every day what the shareholders of that company’s religious views could be.”

Well, that problem wouldn’t exist had Congress not given HHS the power to mandate that employers provide specific products and services to their employees in the first place. Prior to the passage of ObamaCare, most employers already provided some form of health insurance to their employees, and most of those already covered birth control, albeit with co-pays. Those employers who object to abortifacients found other health plans, but that doesn’t prevent men and women from acquiring birth control of their own volition — or finding other work based on competitive compensation packages, for that matter. This became an issue only when Democrats forced the creation and participation of a command economy in health insurance and gave bureaucrats the power to issue regulations such as the HHS contraception mandate, for no rational reason except as political demagoguery.

National Journal notes the same point in a different context:

Another reason companies will likely continue offering coverage? They historically have.

In 2010, 85 percent of companies with more than 200 employees were offering contraceptive coverage, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Employer Health Benefits Survey. In 2002, the number of large employers covering contraception was 78 percent. (The amount employees had to contribute to contraception, such as the birth-control pill, in co-pays or other cost-sharing wasn’t measured by the survey, although the Affordable Care Act now makes the pill and other contraceptives available at no cost.)

In other words, there was no compelling state interest in the first place, especially since the CDC’s own data showed no indications that access to contraception was a problem at all for women attempting to prevent pregnancy.

By the way, it wasn’t just those nine justices looking at ObamaCare yesterday. The DC Circuit Court took up the origination clause challenge yesterday, and at least two of the justices were less than impressed with the law (via the Lonely Conservative):

One judge called the Obamacare rollout an “unmitigated disaster” and said the administration is stretching to try to cover up for how poorly the law was written.

“I know there’s an absurdity principle, but is there a stupidity principle?” said Judge A. Raymond Randolph. “If the law is just stupid, I don’t think it’s up to the court to save it.”

I’m sure Senator Murray finds Congressional absurdity and stupidity “stunning,” too. The rest of us … not so much.

But the flip side is just fine:

“Sitting in that court today, it was stunning perfectly acceptable to me to recognize that nine people are going to make that decision — and will decide for a long time to come — whether women have to question when they go to work every day anybody has to care at all what the shareholders of that company’s religious views could be.”

And if you want birth control, it’s there for you.

novaculus on March 26, 2014 at 12:14 PM

Why do you think Ryan took such a hit with so many conservatives?

It was because he preemptively surrendered to Murray on the budget / sequester.

In this case, the cluelessness and vapidity of Murray is truly stunning. For someone who has been in government as long as she has – and to have such a complete lack of knowledge regarding the three branches of government, it’s inconceivable that she could have been elected to 4 terms in the Senate (1992, 1998, 2004, and 2010).

Either she is the dumbest member of Congress – or she is so callous, arrogant, and devoid of any soul, that she can shamelessly lie and spin to promote the progressive fascist agenda.

Athos on March 26, 2014 at 12:26 PM

Don’t worry darlin’ the state is interested in one thing.. POWER… keeping it and expanding it where ever possible. To think the Court of the state will stop that is just dream’n. Oh sure, they may rule against the other branches of the state from time to time. But, that is just out of caution that the blow back from the citizen minions will be too much for the illusion of freedom to bare. Rest assured that if the state court rules in favor of the people today…. it will be short lived…. tomorrow the state will be back at increasing it power…… just look at the history of the last hundred years.

Forget about logic in dealing with liberals and leftists. Facts do not matter to them. They have only one desire – control.
They are control freaks. They are driven by a very deep psychopathology to control every aspect of other’s existence.
In this particular case, it doesn’t matter that birth control is plentiful, accessible and inexpensive. What matters to them is that they must control the behavior of the individuals or companies that dare to try to abide by their own beliefs.

As a previous Hot Air referenced article put it… they are trying to trump religious freedom over FOUR PILLS. Do we really think that “womens rights” come down to FOUR PILLS?

And regarding the the case before the “Supremes”, I predict the Chief Justice will cave to appease the LSM. I also predict we’ll see most companies dump company-provided health coverage and simply provide an additional bit of money in paychecks, telling employees they’re on their own, and good luck.

Under obamacare, a college party girl can go to the CVS or Walmart, or any pharmacy, and, if prescribed, receive birth control and abortifacients free. That is the law currently. You are paying for this nonsense through your premiums because the insurance companies are passing along the fees and levies collected to subsidize ‘party time’. My understanding is that a woman does not even have to show she’s enrolled to receive the freebies.

What does Murray think the role of the Supreme Court is?

Americans can’t challenge the laws and the Court shouldn’t decide on the constitutionality of them?

It’s actually more damning to the fascists than that….Hobby Lobby provides for 16 out of the 20 ‘contraceptive’ medications that are mandated by the federal government within their health insurance coverages.

Hobby Lobby is claiming a religious exemption on the 20% that represents abortifacients like the ‘morning after pill’.

When someone from the left whinges that Hobby Lobby is denying ‘birth control’ to its female employees, they are being fundamentally dishonest in their representation of the issue.

Of course, fundamentally dishonest is standard operating procedure for the fascists who seek to use the power of the government to put a boot to the throat of those who will not prostrate themselves before government.

Just recall, this is the woman who said that Afghans like Osama bin Laden because he builds daycare centers for women.

Total dipwad and an embarrassment for the state of WA. If you people would get out and vote you might elect somebody with half a brain. And we are actually paying this stupid woman a ton of money!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel so sorry for the state of Washington. Murray is an utter moron.

First God made the idiot. That was for practice. Then He made Patty Murry.

What this really is about for libtards like Osama-Mama is Citizens United. They still think that corporations are not people. Therefore, the individual beliefs of those who run corporations should not be “imposed” on their employees. At least when those beliefs run counter to the Liberal narrative.
