"… there is no such thing as nothing."

It’s all about the money… says Hobby Lobby Store Lawyer Paul D. Clement to SCOTUS.

Here, all along, we’ve been made to believe that Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. – a privately held firm headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which boasts themselves “as a major private corporation in Forbes and Fortunes list of America‘s largest private companies,” – objects on religious grounds (even though their owners are Protestant) to providing insurance coverage to their employees, which insurance includes coverage for female contraceptives.

Here is their attorney – Paul D. Clement, himself the 43d former Solicitor General of the United States – arguing their case:

Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
Docket Number: 13-354
Date Argued: 03/25/14

“…all we’re really talking about is who’s going to pay for a subsidy that the government prefers. This is not about access to the contraception. It’s about who’s going to pay for the government’s preferred subsidy.”

Thanks for clearing that up!

For a while, I was beginning to think that Jesus was crucified for corporations, because “corporations are people, my friend.”@MittRomney
