SCOTUS: Corporations are people

By CNN's Deena Zaru

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that for-profit corporations can be exempt from providing certain contraceptives to their employees if providing coverage for those products conflicts with the corporation’s religious beliefs.

The Court's opinion affirmed the principle that corporations are people and therefore like people, have constitutionally protected religious liberty.
The 5-4 decision against Obama’s contraceptive mandate not only presents legal obstacles for the mandate but also sets a significant precedent when it comes to the court’s understanding of religious freedom.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is feeling pumped up about the seven million plus Americans that the White House says signed up for the Affordable Care Act. She slammed former Obama White House spokesman Robert Gibbs’ questioning of whether the employer mandate will survive any tweaks in the ACA’s final implementation.

“I don't know who his clients are or what his perspective is,” Pelosi says about Gibbs in an exclusive interview with Candy Crowley.

Are corporations people?

By CNN's Deena Zaru

The oral arguments regarding Hobby Lobby vs. Sebelius commence in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. In this case the contraception coverage mandate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be debated, specifically as it applies to for-profit corporations.

The mandate requires businesses of a certain size to provide contraception coverage for their employees. Nearly 50 businesses, many of them Catholic, have sued, and some have protested the coverage of any form of birth control.

However, in the case currently before the Supreme Court, brought on by the Oklahoma-based arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., and an identical case brought on by Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., only certain contraceptives are disputed.
