Press Release: U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court sided with Hobby Lobby and limited Obamacare’s contraception mandate:
Today’s decision is a victory against Obamacare’s unprecedented overreach into our daily lives and the Administration’s disregard for the freedom of religion that Americans cherish. All Texans and Americans have the right to practice their religious beliefs without obstruction from the federal government, and today’s decision by the Supreme Court affirms that Obamacare does not trump those fundamental rights.
In January, Sen. Cornyn joined an amicus brief supporting Hobby Lobby’s challenge to Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate, which requires all employers to provide health care coverage that covers contraceptive costs.
Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance and Judiciary Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
