Today, via Twitter, Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) weighed in on corporations holding religious beliefs:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

At #SCOTUS to stand w/ the Green family to run their businesses w/o government forcing them to violate their faith.[….]8:33 AM – 25 Mar 2014

Uh, if a corporation doesn’t believe in blood transfusions does that mean they can’t be covered by their employees’ health insurance policy? If a corporation is pacifist and it doesn’t want to pay for a war does it have to pay taxes? Just asking.

Interesting. Representative Hartzler (r) isn’t too busy to hang out at the Supreme Court, but was maybe too busy to hold open town halls in the district during the last legislative break?

Someone else noticed:

@RepHartzler nothing like a photo op to play to your religious base. I can’t wait to vote you out. 8:37 AM – 25 Mar 2014

That was within four minutes.

@RepHartzler by the way, abortifacients are not actually a medically or scientifically recognized thing. Please feel free to join reality. 8:43 AM – 25 Mar 2014
