Obamacare Goes Back to the Supreme Court


obamacareIf at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again. The Supreme Court said today it will now take another case dealing with President Obama’s signature health law, this time over whether businesses have the right to object to certain mandates for religious reasons.

The suits come from Hobby Lobby Inc., an arts and crafts chain based in Oklahoma that has 13,000 full-time workers, and Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., which employs 950 people in the cabinet industry.

Hobby Lobby won its suit in lower courts, while Conestoga lost. The issue before the court has been the subject of around 40 separate lawsuits from private companies, and has roughly split lower court decisions. Read more at the Washington Post.

  1. This will be so great if the Supreme Court declares that a corporation is a person for religious purposes. I’ll be able to count corporations for a minyan when we are short. I’ll have to consult with a rav as to how to do a brit milah on a corporation, though, and whether I have to wait 13 years from the corporation’s foundation for them to be bar mitzvah.
