Democrats Set Up Senate Vote On Bill To Overturn Hobby Lobby


On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) moved to bring up Democrats' bill to overturn the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling. The "cloture motion" sets up a likely procedural vote in the Senate on Wednesday, requiring 60 votes to defeat a filibuster.

Republicans, who strongly support the Court's 5-4 ruling against the Obamacare birth control mandate, are expected to block the bill.

The bill, written by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Mark Udall (D-CO), would clarify that employers may not opt out of covering contraceptives or other preventive services in their insurance plans without co-pays, even if business owners object to the services on religious grounds.

For Democrats, the legislation is also a rallying cry to their younger voters, particularly women, ahead of a tough mid-term election.

While you are not a constituent, their D.C. staff might take the mail. They might be able to use it as a tool on the GOP. Hit them where their heart is - money.
