Domino’s Pizza Founder Sues Government Over Obamacare

The founder of Domino’s Pizza is suing the federal government over Obamacare.
My FOX NY reported:

The founder of Domino’s Pizza is suing the federal government over mandatory contraception coverage in the new health care law.

Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a “gravely immoral” practice. He’s a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court, along with his Domino’s Farms, which runs an office park near Ann Arbor.

Monaghan offers health insurance that excludes contraception and abortion for employees. The new law requires employers to offer insurance that includes contraception coverage or risk fines. Monaghan says the law violates his constitutional rights, and he’s asking a judge to strike down the mandate.

    I hope he succeeds and liberals choke on it. So they can use that very expensive “free” obamadontcare.

    And Bobby Jindal wants to ensure that the Democrats don’t run up the cost of contraception.

    If you make it over-the-counter, it’s cheap, and it’s NOT covered by insurance.

    You’d think headlines would be screaming, “Archbishop organizes churches in his diocese in civil disobedience against Obama’s trampling of freedom of conscience…” Or something like it. Instead it’s valiant individual Catholics stepping up while some members of the Catholic hierarchy yuck it up with the same politicians who’s cut their heads off!

  • Economan

    I’m ordering their pizzas tomorrow! I’m glad someone is taking a stand!

  • SoLongSong

    GOOD FOR YOU, Domino’s!! It’s nice to see someone fight back – and it’s getting harder to fight back too, what with all the attacks from every direction from this president.

    The government isn’t forcing you to buy Domino’s pizza like they are Obama’s Patient (rip-off) Protection and (un-) Affordable (for those that pay) Care Act.

    But then again, most of those who support the likes of Obama, and his corrupt Obama Care program, pay little or nothing for their health care insurance (housing, food, energy, etc, etc).

    It’s very easy to support Obama, and his socialist agenda, when you’re on public assistance and/or employed in the public sector.

    Every job I ever had. has covered my health insurance, from the time I graduated college, never once working for the government. And “Obamacare” isn’t going to change that. Perhaps you need a better job.

    The election and health care bill are complete fraud. Give me a uniform- conservative common sense responsibility. Let us get this over with. I will fight for freedom.

  • Ray

    I’m torn between Papa Johns and Domino’s now.

    The only racism in this country is by blacks- that is FACT. PC pussy white media jump on board cuz its easy- cant get in trouble calling white people racist. Not one black person alive today in the USA was ever a slave. In fact blacks have benefited from reverse discrimination for 45 years. This fraud that was elected (by massive voter fraud) is the poster boy for racist victim punk lazy losers. Yeah white people are the devil. White people created the greatest country ever. Make a list of all the inventions made by white people. The only racism in this country is by blacks and PC whites.

    I’m sure that job had some sort of federal or state funding.

    Vicky Hernandez – THANK YOU!!! (her comment is copied below)
    I think it is going to have to be the women, (especially the young, ignored women that are smarter, braver and freer than their contemporaries by not putting class 1 carcinogens in their bodies that subsequently pollute our water (male breast cancer now on the rise)) that band together and have their voices heard. The “yuck it up” one, T. “card” Dolan sold you young women out a long time ago, so yes, it is now up the individual unlike-the-hierarchy valiant individual to speak out. And can they shut up about the “conscience” already? We are women and it is not simply our “conscience” that tells us abortifacients and abortions are not okay for us to be an accessory to, it is our knowledge, via scientific evidence, and personally witnessing our children’s births that “it” is in fact a human being, ergo we want no part in having a hand in the dismemberment and/or starving to death of another, especially one that has committed no crime, while we are forced to be an accomplice to what would be a crime a few short months later, had that unborn person made it out. And I’m not even remotely trying to advocate for or against another’s right to abort, I am simply saying it is grotesquely unamerican to force one to be a member of the firing squad, without even the option or comfort of knowing you are the one holding the bulletless weapon, because by the fruit of your labor you are now directly involved in ending the life of an innocent.

    And again, you incapable-of-looking-outside your anger and at least trying to honestly see someone else’s viewpoint, I am NOT talking about, nor advocating, any change to rights to access bc, abortifacients, or abortions. So read it again before you start spewing your hate. I don’t hate, and as such, I as an individual want no part, especially such a large part, in the termination of many others, capice?

    Ya, sure, and likely Shadow.

    Every private sector working person I know has seen their employer provided H.C. insurance benefit costs increase, their coverage decrease, or both (since Obama Care was enacted).

    Every single one.

    Now maybe you’ve been lucky so far.

    However, those who know, or associate with, other private sector workers would have heard by now that Obama Care has had a negative impact their employer provided health care insurance.

    The fact that you mention nothing about this tells me that you’re full of it.

  • Domino’s Pizza

    Domino’s founder Tom Monaghan sold the company in 1998 and today has no active affiliation with our company. The media often neglect to note this fact. His views are not our views. Domino’s Pizza has made no public statements about health care, as we are still waiting to see how the final rules will affect our network of small business owners. Domino’s is not a political company; it is not a religious company – we are a pizza company.

    Having it delivered right now.

    i dont wish this on anyone by any means but the beloved founder needs to realize that using contraception IS related to health. if he doesn’t think so let him go and have unprotected sex with someone who has aids. let him catch it and THEN tell everyone that contraception ISN’T RELATED to health.

  • Dave

    Now, if we could sue Domino’s for calling that cr*p they serve, pizza! You had frozen deep dish pizza for years… now its no good? You had employees kill people to get that frozen crust pizza to your customer in 30 minutes or less… it was THAT important! And now you don’t want to buy condoms or birth control pills?

    Buying contraception is part of healthcare, you get it from a doctor and some people cannot just take any of them, they need help from a medical professional. When you say you don’t want to pay for abortion, you want women of rape and incest to raise these children? And you’re ok with all the unwanted children in this world without families? How many unwanted children has he adopted and raised as his own? Hopefully nobody in your family is raped or molested.

    Until we have no more unwanted children in this world…
