UNDATED (WHTC) -- Controversy over the Affordable Care Act continues with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling today that some private companies with religious objections do not have to provide prescription contraceptive coverage to employees.  Congressman Bill Huizenga praised the ruling, saying, “The notion that religious freedom applies to some, but not others, runs counter to the First Amendment.  The Supreme Court’s decision stands as a victory for religious freedom.”  In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that the overall healthcare reform law is constitutional.
