Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has vowed to take action this month to try to combat the recent “Hobby Lobby” ruling from the Supreme Court.
In his remarks he referred to the decision and decried the “five white men” who rendered it. But Justice Clarence Thomas is African-American.
“The one thing we are going to do during this work period, sooner rather than later, is to ensure that women’s lives are not determine by virtue of five white men,” Reid said.
“This Hobby Lobby decision is outrageous and we are going to do something about it. People are going to have to walk down here and vote,” the Nevada Democrat added.
Mr. Thomas joined justices John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy and Samuel Alito in the majority decision.
While all five are not white, they are all Roman Catholic.
