Marjorie Dannenfelser Wraps Herself in Knots Trying to Defend Blunt Amendment

With a vote coming up soon on Sen. Roy Blunt‘s “Respect for Rights of Conscience Act” which would, asMother Jones noted, “grant employers significant discretion in deciding what kind of health care they want to provide workers,” it’s been interesting watching right wingers twist themselves into knots trying to defend the amendment.
Case in point on this Tuesday evening’s Hardball is Susan B. Anthony List‘s Marjorie Dannenfelser who had to take to lying about whether the amendment would actually allow any employer and not just religious institutions to deny coverage to their employees for just about anything. Dannenfelser was literally left stammering and stuttering when called on the fact that this goes way beyond anything that could be construed at an attack on the Catholic church.
If Republicans and their allies want to convince voters that this is not just a way for them to undermine the Affordable Care Act which they’ve been determined to do since the day it passed, they’re going to have to find more capable people than Dannenfelser to make their arguments for them.
