Reid Vows to Force Mandatory Contraception Coverage

Democrats in the Senate are trying to override the Supreme Court's ruling that exempted some companies from Obamacare's birth control mandate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby ruling in favor of the Christian family owned business was outrageous.

"The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women's lives are not determined by virtue of five white men," Reid told reporters on Tuesday.

Reid's reference to the "five white men" is incorrect. One of the justices who sided with Hobby Lobby was Justice Clarence Thomas, an African-American.

"We're gonna do something about it. People are gonna have to walk down here and vote. And if they vote with the five men on the Supreme Court (they will) be treated unfavorably come November for the elections," Reid added.

Senate Democrats hope to undo the ruling by passing legislation that would force companies with religious objections to provide contraception coverage, including what some groups view as abortion inducing drugs.

The bill would still have to pass the Republican-controlled House.
