Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby:

“The Supreme Court’s decision today in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby is a victory for religious freedom and individual liberty in the face of big-government mandates. I supported the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) when it passed the Senate resoundingly in the 103rd Congress, and I was proud to join an amicus brief on the side of Hobby Lobby in this case arguing for the ongoing and central importance of RFRA’s protections against government-imposed violations of religious liberty. Today’s ruling confirms RFRA's purpose and sheds light on the harmful policies at work through the sweeping scope of Obamacare and its subsequent mandates.”
