WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Andy Barr released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling that some employers will not be required under the Affordable Care Act to provide insurance coverage for certain drugs and devices that are contrary to their religious or moral beliefs.

"Today, the U.S. Supreme Court has delivered a historic victory for religious freedom in America. I applaud Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood for taking a stand against Obamacare's attack on religious liberty and complete disregard for our First Amendment rights.  I remain committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare with real healthcare reforms that will actually lower the cost of care for Kentucky families without infringing on their constitutional rights.”
