The Hobby Lobby decision is either a blow to the Obama administration's constitutional overreach or another example of the war on women and their reproductive rights, depending on which party is talking. Democrats and Republicans have already figured out how the Supreme Court's ruling against Obamacare's contraceptive mandate plays into their midterm election platforms and what their next steps will be. Senate Democrats and the White House are looking at legislative options to subsidize the contraceptives rejected in the ruling and Republicans just need to not seem too happy about the ruling.
War on Women
A key part of Democrats' 2014 midterm strategy has been focusing on issues that will draw single women — a traditionally left-leaning demographic that doesn't reliably vote in midterms — to the polls. Women's and reproductive rights groups, along with Democratic strategists believe that contraceptive coverage will help inspire that base. “Access to affordable birth control is part of economic advancement for women ... and we’ll make sure women know where the candidates stand on it,” Dawn Leguens of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund told Politico.
