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†’
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.
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
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.
And Harry Reid is promising action:
If the Supreme Court will not protect women'€™s access to health care, then Democrats will.
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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
