Re: “Troop Support

Barber said the decision "allows the beliefs of corporations to trample the rights of employees, especially the rights of women. All employees—men and women—must be free to make their own health care choices with their doctors and without interference from their employer. I will continue fighting to protect the right of all women to make their own health care decisions."

How is this LIE still being passed around? The SCOTUS decision on the Hobby Lobby case does NOT prevent women from making health choices at all; the decision simply allows corporations to decide not to pay for abortion-inducing drugs. That's it. Women still have access to whatever contraceptions they want. It's just that they will have to pay for certain ones out of their own pocket. That's not restricting access; that's personal responsibility. BTW, Mr. Barber, if employees really could make health-care decisions without interference from the employer, we wouldn't be concerned about what the insurance company would pay for and what the co-pay is and what the deductible is.
