Another amicus brief filed by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) argues that the Department of Health and Human Services violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in its implementation of the contraception mandate. Eighty-eight lawmakers have signed it.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is planning a court offensive of his own, and plans to file a class action lawsuit against the NSA in the coming days.
He told the State of the Net conference Tuesday that the lawsuit is already written and predicted the Supreme Court would ultimately decide the challenge.
“I would like people on the Internet to go out and really support our lawsuit,” he said.
“Ten million people signed up for a lawsuit sends a message,” he added.
