Congressman King: Congress Currently Powerless Against Obama

Jul 7th, 2014 | By
Congressman Steve King (R-IA).

“Congress can’t rein the president in. When he breaks the law or ignores the Constitution, he has basically told Congress, ‘I will do it myself and if you don’t like it, sue me.’ Speaker Boehner has a long list of violations if the House passes a resolution giving him the right to bring suit.”

“Today’s ruling is an important decision that advances religious freedom in our country. I am pleased that the Supreme Court upheld all Americans’ rights to be guided by their faith, both in their personal lives and in their professional ones. This decision is also another example of the Supreme Court’s rebuke of the Obama Administration’s continued quest to overstep their power while trampling religious freedom in our country.



Forbes: Supreme Court Decision Landmark

Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA).

“Religious freedom is the cornerstone of a free society, and every American—regardless of whether we are religious—should be concerned when the government attempts to restrain free exercise. We live in a country whose laws respect freedom and diversity, and today the Supreme Court affirmed the Constitution’s strong protections for all Americans to live and work by their convictions. Freedom of conscience can include nothing less than the way a person lives all aspects of his or her life. As a nation, our laws must encourage and support, not penalize, citizens who seek to adhere to their moral convictions.”

Anthony Hahn, the president and CEO of Conestoga Wood Specialties, one of the companies challenging Obamacare’s contraception mandate, said his legal battle wasn’t for his company alone.

“We wholeheartedly affirm what the Supreme Court made clear today — that Americans don’t have to surrender their freedom when they open a family business. All Americans, including family business owners, must be free to live and work according to their beliefs without fear of government punishment.”

Hahn said for his family and like-minded Americans, the government must respect “our freedom not to participate in the distribution of drugs and devices that can cause an abortion.”

The 5-4 opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, says the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) prohibits the government from substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion.



Sen. Inhofe Welcomes SCOTUS Ruling Against Obama

Jun 27th, 2014 | By
Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

“The President knew his controversial nominees did not have the support needed to pass the Senate. He took matters into his own hands and ignored the will of the people, much like he has done on a number of other issues during his Presidency from costly cap-and-trade regulations to the rollout of ObamaCare. This ruling serves as a reminder that the Constitution will always govern this land and must be respected, even by the President.”

Over the Memorial Day weekend, the IRS, which is charged with overseeing enforcement of Obamacare, has issued a rule that bans small businesses from paying their employees a sum of money to go on to the Obamacare health exchanges.
