2. Me thinks..............

 

Brown's recent decision to support the Blount amendment will significantly impact him negatively. His attempts to clarify that if an employer used the Blount amendment to shield themselves from offering certain health care services and that was not related to a matter of religious conviction the company would be sued. Well that is exactly what the amendment does....it makes it legal for ANY employer to carve out procedures, benefits or it appears health care coverage all together solely on the basis of a professed religious or moral conviction. Federal law pre-empts state law in this area and as a result Massachusetts residents would have no legal recourse. Way to go Scotty boi.
