• Roy Blunt: You Mean the Birth Control Thing's Over?

    The Senate defeated Sen. Roy Blunt's amendment to allow employers to refuse to cover health services Thursday, dealing Republicans a high-profile setback in the fight over the Obama administration's contraception coverage mandate.

    But what's that?

    But Blunt (R-Mo.) vowed that the vote won't be the end of the debate over the contraception coverage rule — and predicted that the Supreme Court might have the final say by striking it down.

    Roy, I'm going to be straightforward with you. Forthright. Direct. Not going to beat around the bush, is what I mean. Truly honest in a way that subordinates your personal feelings to my goal of being no-nonsense and upfront about my opinions.

    You can't expect the Supreme Court to help; women are allowed on it.
