    out of office that are against contraception for women, they won't change, and that means this will continue to influence the Supreme Court.  

    I know we like to say that Democrats have to give us a reason to vote, but this is one more case where Republicans are giving us a good enough reason.

      If the last 3 years of GOP rule in the House and mid-west states is not a good enough reason, then there never will be one good enough.  In 2010 too many thought it didn't matter who was in office and didn't bother to get out and vote.  Each day since brings new examples of how wrong that was.

      The likelihood of their being an opening on the Supreme Court in the next two years seems pretty high.   If the GOP controls the Senate, you can forget seeing any Obama nominee confirmed.    You can expect bill after bill sent to the President repealing the ACA.  You can expect even worse.  Same with the states.   The ACA contraceptive issue is just the harbinger of what will come.
