Senator Blunt’s Response To President Obama’s Remarks On HHS Mandate

 

U.S. Senator Roy Blunt

February 10, 2012

   
 

WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement today in response to President Barack Obama’s announcement regarding the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) health care mandate:


“It’s still clear that President Obama does not understand this isn’t about cost – it’s about who controls the religious views of faith-based institutions. President Obama believes that he should have that control. Our Constitution states otherwise.


“Just because you can come up with an accounting gimmick and pretend like religious institutions do not have to pay for the mandate, does not mean that you’ve satisfied the fundamental constitutional freedoms that all Americans are guaranteed.


“I’ll continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure that we reverse this unconstitutional mandate in its entirety.”


Last evening, Blunt attempted to introduce a bipartisan amendment to the federal highway reauthorization bill that would repeal the Obama Administration’s unconstitutional mandate.


Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) objected to Senator Blunt’s amendment, calling the debate “senseless” and urging Americans who are concerned about this issue to “calm down.”
