Comment of the Day: The logic of Hobby Lobby
In response to our post about a DFL proposal that would essentially nullify the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling in Minnesota and force employers to offer contraceptive coverage to their employees, many commenters argued that the decision about what benefits to provide should be left up to bosses.
That's all well and good -- unless your boss, for whatever reason, objects to a medical procedure or prescription that you regard as important for your wellbeing.
The point is made nicely by Tammy Belka:
A majority (all male) of the U.S. Supreme Court is okay with that, apparently. DFLers like Erin Murphy, on the other hand, are not.
