Speaking from the Senate floor Monday, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) included undoing the Supreme Court’s recent ruling allowing some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare’s contraception mandate on a list of Democratic legislative priorities.
“We have so much to address over the coming weeks,” Reid said, before running through a list of upcoming legislation that will pass through the Senate in coming weeks.
Among the Democrats’ legislative priorities, according to Reid, are securing emergency funding to deal with the unaccompanied minors flowing across the southern border, renewing the charter for the Export-Import Bank and allocating monies for the highway trust fund.
“We’re going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation we need to correct,” Reid continued.
Shortly after the SCOTUS ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, Congressional Democrats began working on a plan to undermine the Judicial Branch’s input.
Washington Democratic Senator Patty Murray, the fourth-ranking Democrat in the Senate, is heading up the left’s efforts to undo the ruling.
“Since the Supreme Court decided it will not protect women’s access to health care, I will,” she said last week.
