Hobby Lobby just one example

The effects of President Obama's massive takeover of health care is just starting to be felt. One example is the case of Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby is a Christian-run company and follows Christian principles. Obamacare forces companies to provide contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs, specifically the morning after pill, in their health insurance policies.

Hobby Lobby is racking up $1.3 million in fines daily since Jan. 1 for refusing to violate their religious believes. That is almost $500 million a year. Justice Sotomayor refused an emergency request from Hobby Lobby to hear their case. This is a huge loss of freedom to Americans. The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment or religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." What part of prohibiting the free exercise of religion part does President Obama not understand?

On another note, the very basis of Obamacare is flawed. I have read the U.S. Constitution several times and health care is not a power gien to the federal government. The government is going to destroy a successful company with its excessive and unconstitutional fines and regulations.

I urge all freedom-loving Americans to stand with Hobby Lobby and others facing the heavy hand of government.
