Every Single Republican in the Senate voted to give your boss the power to deny you healthcare if they think it violates their religion

By a 51-48 vote, the motion by Democrats to table the amendment succeeded, effectively killing it.

The so-called “conscience” amendment, sponsored by Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, was the Senate Republicans’ response to the simmering controversy over a recent Obama administration decision to mandate the kind of health care coverage provided by religious employers.

This was the bill about giving employers the power to enforce the Pope’s rules.

One Democrat voted for it, proving once again both sides are equally bad.
