Democrats look for political silver lining in Hobby Lobby contraception ruling

Leading Democrats on Monday vehemently disagreed with the Supreme Court’s decision to limit the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate, but some also saw in the ruling a political opportunity to galvanize female voters, whom they view as crucial to keeping the Senate majority in November. Senate Democrats immediately pounced on the high court’s 5-4 decision, vowing a legislative fix to undo the damage to the administration’s efforts to provide preventive health care services to more women. The decision, they said, only highlighted the importance of preserving the Senate’s Democratic majority as a check on the Republican House and the increasingly powerful conservative voices on the Supreme Court appointed by Republican presidents.
