Obama's Hobby Horse: Gender Equality

On January 28, nineteen U.S. Senators and 91 members of the House of Representatives, all Democrats, filed briefs with the U.S Supreme Court supporting the Obama administration's legal war against Hobby Lobby, a family-owned chain of craft stores that provides health insurance for employees but refuses for religious reasons to cover morning after pills such as Plan B and Ella.

Those words define the President's most important duty. But Obama, himself a constitutional lawyer, is ignoring the Constitution and governing like a dictator.
