And Still The Democrats Lie...

As if it's not enough that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doesn't know Clarence Thomas is black (following his recent rant of “The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determined by virtue of five white men,” other Democrat politicians are still spreading lies about the Hobby Lobby decision as well.

Harry's faux pas about Clarence Thomas was simple stupidity. But his statement "to ensure women's lives are not determined by virtue of five (white) men" is a deliberate falsehood.

Harry's Democrat counterpart in the House, Queen Nancy Pelosi, told reporters in a press conference yesterday “That court decision was a frightening one. That five men should get down to the specifics of whether a woman should use a diaphragm and she should pay for it herself or her boss. It’s not her boss’s business. His business is whatever his business is. But it’s not what contraception she uses.”

Of course, Pelosi's use of the word diaphragm shows her own stupidity since diaphragms are covered by the Hobby Lobby insurance plans. And a question that liberals can't seem to answer is this - if a woman's contraception is none of her boss's business why is it she wants him to pay for it? The rallying cry of "My uterus is none of your business - but I do expect you to pay for my birth control!" is hypocritical at best and ridiculous at worst.

Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), has apparently drafted a new bill that will "override" the Supreme Court's ruling on religious freedom. 

"Women across the country, and men, are outraged by a decision by five Supreme Court justices that all of a sudden says your boss has an opportunity to decide for you what your health care choices are," she told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday.

"That outrage is being transmitted to everyone, and I think we have a very good chance of rewriting the law so that the justices can't take away women's ability to make their own health care choices."

"The Supreme Court, in my opinion -- the five justices turned the Freedom of Religion Act (sic) upside down in their interpretation," Murray told MSNBC. "So what our legislation does is make it very affirmative that a CEO, a corporation, cannot interfere with their employees' health care decisions."

The text of Murray's bill reads in part: "The purpose of this Act is to ensure that employers that provide health benefits to their employees cannot deny any specific health benefits, including contraception coverage, to any of their employees or the covered dependents of such employees entitled by Federal law to receive such coverage."

Apparently Ms. Murray believes if she rewrites the law and says "corporations must pay for everything regardless" it will trump the Supreme Court decision which, by the way, only applies to four specific types of birth control, the abortives and in no way prevents women from using them if they so choose. It simply says corporations with religious beliefs against those types of contraceptives do not have to pay for them. The ruling DOES NOT DENY WOMEN HEALTH CARE OR CONTRACEPTION. The sooner the Democrats stop lying to the American people about that the better off we'll be.

I'm getting fed up listening to Democrats repeatedly lie about the Supreme Court (five white guys) "denying health care rights to women." It's untrue. And the media not only allows these politicians to state their lies they echo them, knowing full well they are misleading the people. It's pretty disgusting.

But then what can we expect when some liberal news agencies make up facts - like how President Obama visited the border while in Texas the other day when it was absolutely untrue. Is it any wonder that we have so many low-information voters in the country when the major networks don't report what they don't want you to hear?
