Pelosi on House Voting to Reject DC Law: ‘How Dare They?’
With the House set to strike down a District of Columbia law aimed at combatting employer discrimination based on reproductive health decisions, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday lashed out at Republicans, calling the vote “Hobby Lobby on steroids,” referring to Hobby Lobby’s refusal to provide contraception health coverage to employees based on religion.
“Republicans need to recognize that your own health care choices are not your boss’s business,” Pelosi said. “This is not your boss’s business. How dare they? Especially those who are so anti-government, to all-of-a-sudden have government making decisions about reproductive health.”
