OK

Remember when Republicans gnashed their teeth and tended their garments over an "activist court?" Well, that's all over now in the Hobby Lobby decision:

#HobbyLobby decision is another defeat for an administration that has repeatedly crossed constitutional lines†’ http://t.co/...
@SpeakerBoehner
Of course, the only part Boehner cares about is the defeat for the Obama administration. For the head of the Republican Party, it's clear that the War on Women lives.
The #HobbyLobby decision protects religious freedom guaranteed by the 1st Amendment. We're grateful #SCOTUS ruled on the side of liberty.
@Reince
Liberty clearly does not extend to women. How's that rebranding going, Reince?

Meanwhile, Democrats are fighting mad.

Allowing CEOs to limit the medical procedures available to employees is a gross violation of workers'€™ religious rights. #NotMyBossBusiness
@NancyPelosi
Can't believe we live in a world where we'd even consider letting big corps deny women access to basic care based on vague moral objections.
@elizabethforma
And Harry Reid is promising action:
If the Supreme Court will not protect women'€™s access to health care, then Democrats will. http://t.co/... http://t.co/...
@SenatorReid
This isn't going to be the end of this case, with the Roberts Five handing Democrats a powerful campaign tool for 2014 and beyond. Women might not have all the liberties that corporations have in the eyes of the court, but they have a ballot.
