Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) introduced legislation to protect religious organizations from Obamacare's overreach last summer. Now, as President Obama presses forward with his anti-conscience mandate, Blunt is prepared to keep the pressure on the White House.
"We want to be sure we've established the principle here that the Constitution establishes -- that President Washington understood and President Jefferson understood, and my guess is, every president between them and right now understood -- and that is respect for conscience is respect for religious freedom," Blunt said.
