The DMZ
On The DMZ: Matt doesn’t consider Hobby Lobby a huge victory, and Bill argues it was a narrower ruling than many liberals fear. Matt takes the left’s reaction to the ruling as another example of our age of constant outrage. Why is John Boehner threatening to sue Obama over the president’s executive orders? Bill thinks the death of comprehensive immigration reform could have unexpected results in November. They check in on the still unspooling craziness that was the Mississippi GOP Senate primary. Plus: Will a Republican Bill Clinton emerge from the midst of the GOP civil war?

The Posner Show
On The Posner Show, Sarah talks to Caroline about the Supreme Court’s decision in Hobby Lobby. Is the decision a narrow one, as the majority insists, or one of “startling breadth,” as Justice Ginsburg charges in her dissent? They discuss how the decision affects religious non-profits that have also challenged the contraception mandate. How did the decision expand the scope of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act? Will HHS now step in to provide contraception coverage for Hobby Lobby employees? Might some companies try to game the system to save money? Did the government make a mistake by not challenging Hobby Lobby’s claim that emergency contraception and IUDs are abortifacients? Plus: How Hobby Lobby will affect gay rights cases.
