PA GOP Releases Statement On Burwell V. Hobby Lobby

HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding today’s United States Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby.

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling should serve as a reminder that Obamacare is an overreaching government takeover of our health care system,” Gleason said. “Today’s decision is a victory for our First Amendment rights in the face of intrusive laws such as Obamacare. Religious freedom is one of the bedrocks of our society, and today’s decision was a strong defense against President Barack Obama and the Democrats’ attempt to impose their far-left agenda on Americans.

“Secretary Tom Wolf claims that Obamacare is a ‘step in the right direction’. Instead of standing up for religious freedom, Tom Wolf believes that Pennsylvanians ‘need’ a complete government takeover of healthcare. The greatness of America lies in its freedoms and the Obama-Wolf vision of more invasive government is being rejected by Pennsylvanians.

“We hope that today’s decision will cause Secretary Wolf to reevaluate his support for Obamacare and its disastrous consequences.”
