In Washington, D.C., the definition of a ‘gaffe’ is when a politician accidently tells the truth.
At a townhall meeting with her constituents, New York Democrat Congresswoman Kathy Hochul had one of those gaffe moments where she accidently told her constituents the truth about the so-called “contraception mandate” and the Constitution.
When pressed to explain the constitutionality of mandating that all employers provide certain, government-ordered health care benefits, even if those benefits violate their religious and moral beliefs, Hochul defended the mandate saying:
“Well, basically, we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of it.”
See for yourself:
Every member of Congress takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. And yet, Rep. Hochul seems surprised that her constituents would actually want to know the Constitutional basis such a mandate.
If Congress and this government have forgotten just how important the Constitution and our enumerated freedoms are, we must remind them.
