Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case.

“By attacking the religious convictions of the Green family, the Obama Administration has once again shown its distain for the free expression of faith. With this ruling, I am relieved that the Supreme Court has somewhat blunted the President’s endless assault on our individual freedoms and liberties. Barack Obama and his administration need to remember that he was elected President, not king; and that people should be able to practice their faith without fear of big government trampling on the Judeo-Christian values upon which our great nation was founded,” Blackburn said.

“Additionally, this is an important victory for the job creators in our economy. For the past six years, the Obama Administration has destroyed jobs with its insatiable desire to regulate and control. Successful business owners know how best to manage their affairs, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington. The more this Administration meddles in the economy, the fewer jobs that will be created and the more families that will suffer from the lack of a steady income.

“The fact that this case needed to be heard at all should demonstrate to all of us that the struggle to preserve American liberty is never-ending.”
