Senator Blunt Vows to Keep Pressure on President Obama Over Contraceptive Mandate

http://blog.heritage.org/2012/02/13/sen-blunt-vows-to-keep-pressure-on-obama-over-anti-conscience-mandate/ | Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) introduced legislation to protect religious organizations from Obamacare’s overreach last summer. Now, as President Obama presses forward with his anti-conscience mandate, Blunt is prepared to keep the pressure on the White House.

“We want to be sure we’ve established the principle here that the Constitution establishes — that President Washington understood and President Jefferson understood, and my guess is, every president between them and right now understood — and that is respect for conscience is respect for religious freedom,” Blunt said.
